our "January thaw" which typically lasts a week, maybe 10 days lasted all month. i admit to feeling betwixt and between it was so warm so mild it was hard to remember that the vernal equinox is stil many weeks away.
6-12 inches of snow tomorrow night? that's what the tv people are saying. it feels like it could happen: cold very very cold birds are busy at the feeders i'm going downstairs to turn up the thermostat and check the seed supply.
gratefully, the predicted ice storm did not come to us (and i guess Laura has power, since she could post on her blog today) but i must say that when ice does come (but only a light coating, please!) it can be truly magical this was how a weeping willow looked one winter morning not long ago
