Hardy Bluebirds

I saw a small flock of Eastern bluebirds down by the creek today.
I'm surprised they survived the bitter cold,
but glad they did.

Snowcapped Bittersweet

Winter Weary

We've had snow on the ground for over 3 weeks.
The temps are brutal, rarely making it out of the teens.
 Everyone is tired of winter.

Rocky with a frosting of snow

 Tag's heavier coat insulates him from the snow.
Of course, this is no time for a bath.

An earful of snow

This weather is for the birds!

The Thaw

The winter storm dumped 13 inches on us
and the temperature dropped to -15 with wind chills in the -40's.

 Our trails looked like this

And this

Now we are getting above average temps in the 40's.
Everything is melting

The thaw begins.
Winter in Indiana.

Winter Storm

A winter storm is predicted.
Snow should accumulate up to 12 inches
with wind chills in the -40's.
But for now, the temp is pleasant and snow is falling,
so we took a walk in the woods.

Long Winter Nights

What to do on a long winter night?
Why, face painting, of course.

Granddaughter Liddy paints grandma.

She nailed it!

 Thanks to Aunt Jamie for providing the fun!
