Well Dear Readers, we in the East got whomped but good with yet another nor'easter. Those of us in the Lehigh Valley area got 13.5 inches of snow and compared to some areas, we got off easy! The snow is fluffy and piled on top of any exposed surface. Since the sun is shining, it is plopping down from the trees and bushes it fell upon and icicles are beginning to melt.
As for me, I am NOT digg'n it! Still, ever one to look for the bright side of a situation, the contrasts of this late winter storm are kinda sorta fun. For example, the singing birds. In the dead of winter we do not hear many birds but with Spring about to spring, the eager to play little birdies are everywhere! Their bright colors and even more vibrant songs fill the trees and air and it's exhilarating!
I had to shovel a poop path for our dog Lollipop this morning and I didn't have to whistle while I worked, the cardinals did it for me! Both male and female cardinals flitted about the bushes and trees or perched overhead on the wires singing songs and flirting. Sweet, tiny finches chittered and sang as they hopped from this twig to that twig and dodged falling snow.
I hope you notice a fun contrast where you live and share it in the comments section.
