Incoming.....before the rain and mild temperatures came on Wednesday last week.
I haven't been far to take pictures....these were taken in the backyard....and have only been to town twice last week - on Monday and Thursday.
Lots of crow tracks all over the backyard as they scavenge for birdseed dropped from the feeders. We have 3 regulars and sometimes they bring friends.
We had 3 days of mild temperatures, two of them were rainy and foggy, so we lost a considerable amount of snow, and what was left froze on Friday night when the temperatures dropped drastically again.
Up to their necks in snow.
Crow tracks are everywhere.
This was a fun find. A doorknob in the snow to a....hobbit hole??
It's actually attached to our old front door which was leaning against the deck posts and the wind blew it over weeks ago. It got buried in the snow except for the doorknob. lol
On Friday morning as the sun was just coming up these three deer made a visit to the yard.
You can see the ice on the neighbour's driveway and our driveway looks the same, along with pretty well everyone elses! Murray went to the government garage near us and got some sand to spread on it. The crows like that. 😜 Apparently, they are like chickens and enjoy eating grit for their gullets.
We've both been fighting colds since we got home and Murray had a touch of 'something' on Monday night after his first day back to work which kept him home and in bed all day Tuesday. It struck me on Friday afternoon - chills and the worst aches and pains, along with nausea. Thankfully I didn't get sick and just rested. It lasted 24 hours as by late Saturday afternoon I was feeling better. Have you caught any of the 'bugs' going around this winter?
We still haven't been out on the snowmobile or snowshoes. Our snow is crusty and the trails are icy and down to dirt in some spots so we have to wait for the next snowstorm to have a good time enjoying the outdoors. And there's none in the forecast this week! Have you been out and enjoying winter?
I hope you have a great week and I thank you for visiting.
