One Day Closer to Spring

Don't be alarmed; that's not a real bird in a cage. It was part of my outdoor holiday decorations. I put everything else away, but thought the peace doves could stay. They looked so happy I could almost hear them coo. During the night the wind grabbed them and posed them like this! I was going to pick them up, but laughed and thought the bird felt the same way about winter as I.

As far as I'm concerned, the last time we hear "White Christmas" is when the white stuff can stop. Mother Nature has other plans this year!

This has become almost a daily scene out my back window. It's like living in a constantly shaken snow globe. Current temp is 2 degrees; wind chill is -16.

Many areas of the country are experiencing unusually extreme weather this winter. To all of us, I say, "Take heart! With each passing day, we must be closer to spring!"

  1. My heart skipped a beat when I saw the dove! Whew, glad to know it's a "decor dove." We're setting record lows here in STLouis but had only one inch of snow today with the Arctic air mass. Your landscape looks prettier than ours though! Spring, come soon!
