perennial

It was only 18 below this morning. We're warming up.

It's warmed up here to all of 20 degrees at the moment. Last night's PREPARE FOR DOOM! snowstorm turned out to be about an inch. A Cooper's hawk just landed in the tree by the feeders…but found no chickadee or titmouse or finch on the ground, feet upward, addled by a too-hasty retreat into a window glass (his usual method of securing lunch.) Guess Mr. Copper's will have to seek a meal elsewhere.

Nice photo. I love the way snow softens and changes the land—and how even a few flower heads look like Chinese watercolors.

Stay warm!

18 was the low here in some local inland spots last week.

Looks about the same here- I love the crispness & crunch of the snow at that temp under your feet.

Well,not to be braggin' or any such, but....

Last night we hit 22 below zero here in Central Wisconsin. Brrrr....

But I'd really rather NOT have that temp to brag about!

Griz- I love your description of your bird feeder activity. And I do like the shadows and softness provided by the snow.

FC- I assume you mean 18 above? But that is darn cold for Florida! Use that newly remodeled fireplace!

Mezamashii- Welcome, thanks for commenting! Yes, the snow has crusted over enough to be crunchy. I think you can see my path to the compost pile in that photo.

DennisP- You win! And I'm glad!
