Despite the forecast for snow, the precip seems to be holding at freezing rain on Sunday morning. Not a happy prospect for skiers or snowmobile enthusiasts or for me wanting to get out there to snowshoe! In any case, the big chill will be coming our way, so bundle up.
Yesterday I was watching 4 turkeys meandering on the other side of my driveway. When I checked this morning there were only 3, so I wondered if the 4th had been gobbled up. But, no, it eventually showed up – just late to the party! BTW, you still have time to wish Kris Lynds a Happy Birthday on 1/28.
It seems like prices for everything are escalating.
