Finally some sun

While I don't like looking at the hydro wires, the sight of sunrise early this morning was a great surprise and delight. I'm getting tired of gray day after day after day.

It's snowed nearly every day since Christmas. I think we've seen the sun once or twice since then.

The only problem with today is that it's bitter cold out there - between -15 and -20 C which I gather is around 0 F - and the wind is up which makes it bitter on my face walking the dogs... won't be doing much of that I don't think. But I certainly will enjoy the sun.

Lots of birds around filling up on sunflower seeds which are high in fat content - what they need to stay warm. Yesterday a sharp shinned hawk sat in the weeping birch for a long time while all the little birds hid. No luck for him for lunch here as far as I know. But what a beautiful bird.

Hope you're warm and safe wherever you are today.
