We got three inches of snow and Lorelei's school was closed. As I have said before, Cincinnati is full of sissies. We got Isabelle ready for school (their schools are in different districts) and Geoff walked her to the bus stop. With it being 5 degrees, they didn't wait long. They walked back and Geoff drove her to school. When they got there, there were NO cars in the parking lot. Confused, they drove back. We checked the closings and the school was not listed. When we called the school, we were told that her school opens TOMORROW. We are on dope.
So for the second year in a row, my birthday didn't quite go the way I planned. Oh, well.
It was all of 5 degrees when I went out to do some quickie birding. And there's nothing very riveting to report....I did the "legal" trail around the PITS and saw:
Birding was better at home. I was close enough to see and photograph.
Even really looked at the size differences between cardinals, finches and sparrows?
(Female cardinal, two goldfinches and a white-throated sparrow)
I'm sorry. Are we boring you?
The little beggars went through TWO batches of Zick dough today. I'm running out of lard.
A single snowflake... I don't know why, but looking at it makes me happy.
Happy Birthday to me.
