After an amazingly warm weekend, we were hit by 5+ inches of snow. Made for an interesting day, especially watching the animals.
Many birds hung around the feeders through the storm, especially the litttle Juncos.
The snowfall covered the barn quickly.
A flock of Robins perched around the trees, looking out of place with the ground covered in snow.
And I learned something new about Robins. Several of them flew in and out of this Juniper tree eating the juniper berries. Who knew?
This large bush is just outside a porch window, and the Robins were too intent on eating the berries to worry about me standing in the window. They must have been pretty hungry.
I learned something new about our Shiba Inu as well… he likes to eat snow! Go figure. He has a very particular demeanor. The Mrs. saw him eating chunks off the newly plowed driveway and got a quick picture of him. That’s a chunk of snow in his mouth!
Of course the Yellow Labrador will eat just about anything… here he’s looking for whatever that might be!
“I know it’s in there somewhere…”
He ran around like crazy through the snow, finally sitting down as if wondering, “Now what do I do?” Then he ran some more… He slept like a baby last night, all tuckered out.
But Old Man Basset Hound wandered around making sure everything was in order. He’s going on 11 years old…
