Here We Go - More Snow!!!

Some more photos I took last week of the ice and snow - we now have about 3-4 more inches of snow that came in yesterday. Spring, spring, come soon!!

The snow right now looks as fine as white sand, blowing around over the top of the accumulation. Tiny tracks throughout the untouched snow let me know critters were moving around last night while we lay sleeping. Probably cats and squirrels and maybe a deer or two...
And the birds are mobbing the feeder and birdbath this morning, digging at the table where I scatter seed to get past the snow and down to the good stuff again. They have had a rough time of it so I'm glad I always have something out for them. Junkos, cardinals, sparrows, downy and hairy woodpeckers and red-bellied, tufted titmouse (or is that titmice?) are all jostling for their share of the seeds and suet. Haven't seen the robins lately - maybe they finally decided we WERE going to have winter and they headed south.
