Winter Returns With a Bang

Came home on Wednesday to balmy temperatures and no snow and last night the temperature took a nose dive and the snow started falling… this was my front yard yesterday… unbelievable for January.

Today felt bitterly cold and the weather tells me that it is -22C / -8F which is quite the change from the weather I just left and this was taken tonight on my way home from the pet shop where I have been volunteering with the baby birds.

I will have to tell you all about the baby birds in another posting and hear that it also snowed in Portland so expect that they are in a state of panic there right now.

For us it is just winter as usual and I am looking forward to taking the new winter bike out for a ride tomorrow as it has yet to see any real snow.
