The Never-Ending Winter

All right, perhaps that's a bit of an exageration. But just a little. It looks like most of the snow has moved to the east now, so now we just have to worry about blowing snow. And there is plenty of that around here.

More snow!

The birds do a nice job of clearing off the railing.

There is a deck under all that snow. At least I think I remember seeing one once. Was that really only a week ago?

As it looks like the raccoons struck again, I tore up some bread and tossed it out on the deck for the birds to eat. Gee, I had just a wee bit of trouble opening the storm door. I wonder why?

I hope you weren't wanting to sit down on the front porch today.

Kelley's car is out there somewhere...

I love seeing the bird tracks in the snow.

I see we have a new visitor this morning. After several minutes of research, I finally found out that this is a Roufus-Sided Towhee.

I was bummed when they forecast more snow for last night/today, then was pleased to see the map showing the heavy stuff was likely to pass south & east of Chicago. But then I realized that it would likely sock your area. Sorry about those thoughts.

Nasty, but are you supposed to get the warmer weather by Tuesday too? Between that and the raccoons, your deck ought to reappear shortly.

Don't worry, I won't blame you. After all, I was just as busy wishing this mess elsewhere too! Kelley is on spring break now and is seriously wishing for nice weather since she can't afford to head south (but she does have tickets to round 1 of the NCAA men's basketball finals...).
