"Freezy Cold"

Throughout January and February we have had spells of "Freezy Cold" as our kids used to say.  The Polar Vortex swooped in (from the Left of course... make that from our West) several times and dropped the temps into the 20s for a few hours every week or so and this morning we even got some real snow. The birds don't seem to mind and find our feeders even more attractive.

These pictures were taken this morning between 6:30 and 7:30



This white Verbena on the patio is one Carol has had for a very long time and has done well, even though we did not cover it.

Of course, compared to our loved ones in the rest of the U.S. our cold snaps are very mild.  But they still close schools and snarl traffic to an amazing degree.
