25 below zero in south Colton this morning, but it’s bright & sunny for the first time in a week. I don’t think it ever got this cold last winter. There is a flock of finches parked in the bare maple out the window. small groups of them taking turns diving down to the thistle feeder on the fence.
The first flakes of snow fell in South Colton today. Time to put out the suet for the birds and find where we stored the terriers’ jackets.
Winter is trying to catch up after its late start. We got a foot of snow overnight. I’m going to spend the day, or at least the morning, curled up with a virtual stack of student essays that need grading before the Sunday deadline. Hanoi seems very far away at the moment.
