We were pretty lucky in what fell overnight was mainly sleet. I was really dreading freezing rain that would have coated trees and power lines. I am hoping that the possible snow tomorrow is nothing more than just a brief flurry or nothing at all.
There is a hard packed layer of ice on the street today and the only vehicle I saw was the mail truck late this afternoon that several of us ended up going out and giving a little push when she started spinning and couldn't go.
The birds were a little late getting started this morning as there was still a bit of sleet going on. I had taken in the suet feeders and thistle sock so they would not be coated over with ice and put them back out right around 0700. It did not take the birds long to come out after that and they have been steady at the feeders all day.
I ended up putting some food along the deck railing just so more could come eat. Many of them showed up with ice showing on their feathers. I know they had a cold miserable night with more cold coming tonight.
