More Winter Weather in Portland...

I need to share some weather-related photos this time around!

No, Portland didn't quite get the awful weather that had been expected, but we are supposed to have another storm tomorrow -- and even worse next Sunday. (sigh)

We had some snow, but we mainly had RAIN today. Cold rain. And, of course, it's garbage night. (Dad is smiling down from heaven, glad he's not doing his own -- he was wont to say that it always rained on garbage night. (grin)

I've got many photos to share today...

Note that you can see snow falling -- sort of! (The falling snow is rather blurry.)

Blocks of ice
The blocks of ice (from the make-shift birdbath) haven't melted, yet!

Hummingbird feeder
I've been keeping the hummingbird feeder thawed and full...

Colin Kitty watches the many birds and squirrels in the back yard.

There were TONS of birds after I put out the seed...

Here's a bird on top of the feeder Mom gave us years back.

And many squirrels to eat the sunflower seeds. (I don't
know if they ever went for the ear of dried corn or not.)

You can see the squirrel feeder that Jim made (with June's
help). The squirrels love it!

And that's it for today!
