Now the Birds Enjoy Our Tree
When I took the Christmas tree outside, I jammed it into the hardened snow pile leftover from raking the roof in December and January, and there it stands, upright. Even though juncoes have been hopping all over it for a week, the needles are still hanging on!
For once we had a winter storm warning and our area of the lakeshore didn't get buried in snow. We got a nice little fall that makes everything look white and fresh again.
My husband took a couple of hours off in the morning and cleared the driveway with the snowblower, especially the drift across the end where the drive crosses the drainage ditch next to the road.
After he went to work, I took the bucket of wood ash and sprinkled it on the driveway to give him more traction when he gets home.
The local webcam has a nice view of the South Haven light today. I grabbed this screen shot at 12:30.
An hour or so later, the wind had picked up, the waves were a bit higher, and the channel was starting to fill with pack ice.
Now the channel is full of slushy ice - not a good day to walk out on the pier!
But a good day to knit away on the Stargate.
