We were given the forecast on Saturday evening that Sunday we’d wake up to snow. As is often the case here in the lovely Pacific Northwest – there are dire warnings of “wicked winter weather” (one news station in particular has an affinity for this phrase!). More often than not, however, it turns out to be nothing – a total bust – much to the kids’ disgust.
She was definitely in her element! Jessica even went out and tried to put together snowballs to throw to the dog to catch – but the snow was very powdery and that didn’t work so well!
Caleb, as it turned out, had other plans for the day. He went and settled himself on top of my sewing “basket” (which is actually just a plastic bin with a lid full of projects that I think I ought to do) to do a little bird watching…
You gotta admit – it is lovely to watch them! And there were so many that came to feed – a much wider variety than we might normally expect.
Caleb did have his moments of excitement – where he tried to climb the window sill to try and reach a bird or two out in the dogwood!
But the birdies were safe!
I think this one might be a towhee… But we even saw a few robins trying to get to the feeders yesterday! Wild!
All in all – we had quite a little bit of accumulation before the day was done. Something in the 3 to 4 inches of snow range. We are up the hill a bit with a little more elevation, so that makes sense.
