Been home now for three days with a big snowstorm.  We didn't get the 8-12 inches that were forecast; it wasn't the "storm of historic proportions" that was talked about; not nearly as many lost power as was expected; however, it has been a lovely L-O-N-G experience.  It's just now stopping; and it's been going on for over 48 hours.  

I have missed Andrew during this time.  There were so many times that a snowstorm meant him and Bryon, and their siblings on both sides, out playing in the snow.

ML came home Monday night--better to be snowed in at home than away at school.

Our feeders have been frantic.  All these birds have been there in the past three days:
Carolina chickadee
tufted titmouse
Carolina wren
pine warbler
song sparrow
chipping sparrow
northern junco
downy woodpecker
red-bellied woodpecker
mourning dove
red-winged blackbird
common grackle
hermit thrush (a first for both Mike and me)
American goldfinch
house finch
ruby-crowned kinglet
blue jay
rufous-sided towhee
