January Snows is right!
After three winters with no snow in our part of the Willamette Valley,
...we woke up yesterday morning to a couple of inches of snow.
The dark gray skies lingered for most of the day.
The light, icy dry snow fell until about 2pm.
We ended up with just a bit over 4"...
...and a Winter Wonderland.
Thankfully after the destruction wrought by our ice storm,
...this storm looks to be 'easier' on the forest.
I could hear the Acorn Woodpeckers working on their granary tree (off to the left), but I did not see them at the feeders.
I did have fresh water available.
The California Quail act as mini-snowplows and they made lots of trails to the feeders.
The fir boughs are ssnow-covered, but not weighted down.
The clouds broke as the sun set.
We are supposed to get down to 10°F Wednesday night.
Believe me I will keep the feeders full and rotate the hummingbird feeders to that they have access to calories to fight the bitter cold.
