When hubby and I moved from Michigan to the Pacific Northwest last year, we were really looking forward to the luxury of having a mild winter for a change.
Well, it had been mild. Until this week, that is!
Look what Mother Nature decided to gift us with! Over the past several days, we've had at least 12" of the fluffy white stuff! I could hardly believe my eyes when I awoke the other day to all of this! And here we were told that when it does snow out here, which isn't that often unless you are in the mountains, that it melts right away. Well, I don't think this will be melting any time soon! And to think that there is no snow back home in Michigan (well, that's all about to change soon, I hear!!)
I snapped all of these photos from inside of the house. Since I've been fighting a cold, I've not even set foot outside for days!
Believe it or not, these little guys stay put year round! I guess they must be alot hardier than they appear! This poor little hummer was trying his hardest to drink from the feeder, but I don't think he had much luck. The sugar water was frozen!
I felt so sorry for him!
I wanted to thank you all again for your continued prayers and support as I face upcoming surgery. I am taking it easy, trying to get over this cold so I don't have to postpone the operation any longer. And, thanks to your prayers, I'm not feeling nearly as anxious about everything as I had. So that is a miracle in and of itself!
You ladies are the best! Keep warm!
