It started with rain early Tuesday morning and then it turned to freezing rain. The freezing rain gave way to sleet and finally snow. When the precipitation ended, all flat surfaces were covered sheet of ice. And all the while, temperatures dropped from the 70s on Saturday, the 50s on Monday, the 20s Tuesday, teens today, and single digits tonight.
A four nerve daisy blooms through the snow and ice.
A dove is hunkered down near the patio.
The red feathers of this cardinal brighten a cold, dreary day. Looks like I will have to venture out into the cold soon and refill the feeder.
I know there are other parts of the country with more snow, ice, and colder temperatures than we have here on the prairie. Stay safe and warm wherever you are.
I need to shut off the computer before the next power outage.
