Winter Storm Eartha, Here Comes Winter!

Yesterday winter storm Eartha dropped every kind of winter weather ending with lots of ice. What a difference a day makes, as the goldfinches are demonstrating. First there was big conglomerate snowflakes as wet, heavy snow, the kind that is good for snowman making and hard to shovel! Then it changed to rain and sleet. The only good thing was that the rain washed off some of the heavy snow on branches so they did not break causing massive power outages. I know there are outages, but could have been worse, we did not lose power. The rain diminished the depth of snow cover. Then the finale was everything turning to ice last night as temps dipped. Also lots of wind. I shoveled deck three times, still ice. Keep feeders filled the birds need it!
