-11°C (12.2°F) Not much warmer yet. I noticed the pine tree on the south side of our house has a little dollop of snow on each tuft of needles. Tasty.

Mostly Clear
-12°C (10.4°F) Colder and sunnier than I expected…
I see only solo ducks today. The rest must be hunkered down until the sun has a chance to warm things up.
… but just enough snow to make shoveling seem worthwhile.
I’m happy to get the water – and the exercise – and the fresh air. Tiny mousetracks line the sidewalk under our yews.
