First week of January

It was mild most of the week, we walked outdoors under sunny skies. Temperatures rose most days into the 40's.

Yesterday the wind came up and blew cold air into the region. I placed fresh water on the deck for the birds. The Woodpeckers
enjoy the nuts. We placed acorns on the deck for the Yellow Shafted Flickers and Blue Jays.
Today the high was 24 degrees with snow flurries.

All week the weathermen have been talking about
 the big snow storm heading our way.
We need the moisture.

January 1, 2011

Bitterly cold this morning
with clear skies.

The sun felt warm when we walked.
Many birds at the feeders and suet.
I put two scoops of saved acorns
out for the Blue Jays and squirrels.
