I'm seconding Goldie's theory that the best way to enjoy a winter wonderland is from the warm inside thru the window.
We've had major winter weather in the past 24 hours. We had 4 inches of snow yesterday, 1 1/2 of ice on top of that overnight and it is snowing big huge fast flakes right now. Mommy went out early during a "pause" in the weather to break the ice off the bird feeders. This is what she saw.
She just realized she didn't get a picture of the inside of the completely frozen platform feeder (the flat wooden one in the front). The seed inside was a solid sheet of ice. Luckily mommy had an extra one inside (she trades that out for the big suet cages during fall and winter) so she filled that and put it out.
Even the rim of this heated birdbath had icecicles on it! Luckily the water didn't freeze in either one (mommy has 2).
Now, for a very important "wordy" tip. When your mommy opens the dishwasher in the morning and finds the soap dispensers filled and still dirty dishes, pauses then says "D*mn it, I can't believe I forgot to start this again! I must be losing my mind." Do NOT cock your head to the side, look her in the eye and say "What do you mean 'losing'?" It means you won't get breakfast in bed that day...
