Winter Has Arrived!

A week ago we had very little snow - which is unusual for this time of year!  Well ... that's changed!  We have a nice snow cover now - it's only about 5 or 6 inches but the ground is covered in white.  Along with the snow came a COLD front.  Our high for tomorrow is supposed to be about 5 below zero, with wind chills around minus 30.  The entire week calls for Brrr...  
The birds are filling up their bellies on our feeders.  It's so nice to see them surviving the cold as well as they do.  I'm sure they appreciate the treats.

Pretty birds. We're having springlike weather here in south Texas.

It's amazing how a tiny bird can survive these bitter temps we are getting...it was minus -17 this morning, the sun is trying to shine in spite of the icy winds...
Stay inside with a hot cup of tea and a snuggling blanket with your Thom.
Blessings
