Stocking Up


The birds know what is about to go down tonight and tomorrow.  



Suddenly, up to eight inches of snow is forecast for my area by the end of the day tomorrow.  





I am glad that I don't live in, "town", as the city sent out an all call to every residence, in the city limits, to warn of the impending snow storm........ at three o'clock this morning.  




Many people thought that could have waited until later in the day.  




As for us, well we stocked up on the Holy Trinity, (bread, milk, and toilet paper), yesterday before we even considered it might snow.  


We are so forward thinking like that, don't ya know.....

  3. We had a few inches last night, but the single digit temperatures and the 40-60 mph winds is what got my attention. Brrrrr. Stay warm!

  4. That's an early get-up-and-get-ready call for sure. Glad it didn't burden you. You guys know for sure by now how to deal with dooming weather changes. Really great shots Michelle!

  7. You have the COOLEST birds! I wish we had Cardinals. They must not like it up North. I hope you fare well during the snow-mageddon! We have daffodils blooming and sunshine! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

    1. Teresa, I tried to get a picture of the female Cardinal, but the wind kept blowing her away! Our yard is currently full of Blackbirds feedings. They know what is coming too!

  9. Beautiful birds! We're supposed to get some of that snow too, but I think I've got all that I need already. Hoping for a day off from school. :)

  10. Somehow the birds always know. I'd love to know their secret. Maybe you won't get as much snow as predicted. (Trying to think positive here. lol)

    ReplyDelete
  11. They keep calling here too at odd hours and for quite minor weather events. People is getting tired of this...

  12. I do believe that the birds do know.... You just have to wonder why it is that the phone calls have to go out that early in the mornings. Ours do this as well. Enjoy the snow, but stay warm and safe. We are expected to receive a few snowflakes!!

  15. Eight inches of snow . . . . brrr!
    We do get it here in UK sometimes but not as much as you.
    Three o'clock in the morning does sound very early for the warning . .
    I sleep sp soundly I doubt whether I would hear it.
    Thank you Michelle for your kind comment on my RAK.
    I had something really wonderful to celebrate today ~ done a post on it . . . :)

  20. Don't forget the most important thing in life. Stock up on water, because without water, you can't make COFFEE!

  22. Beautiful bird pics!We are rationing the last of the bird seed as we are still stuck from the blizzard. School vacation this week. And I think that storm that is going to hit you is supposed to get us (5-8") on Tues. Spring where are you?

  23. We were told we would get 5 inches of snow and ice during the night and today. Nothing so far!

  24. There's nothing like a good snow storm to get caught up on inside work (or napping). Keep warm and safe!

  32. Such pretty birds, love the stand. Stocking up is a good thing.Keep Cozy,Francine.

  33. Haha. I remember when we lived in Pennsylvania, if there was a threat of a storm, the grocery shelves would be empty of staple items in a few hours. Everyone hunkered down and waited out the storm because they don't have snow removal equipment. Of course here in NW Wisconsin, it's old news and the roads get plowed the next day. Stay warm and safe.

  34. Good luck with the snow. Grew up in it, but been away for several years. Living below the snowline works for me!

  39. Hi Michelle, Enjoyed the photos, as always. A little curious about the middle-of-the-night snow warning ... now that we have this "do not disturb" thing on our phones, I wonder if the warning will come through anyway? Stay warm! Thanks for sharing. John PS I don't know how many postcards I have ... I wish I did know ... ha ha ... several shoe boxes full anyway. :-)
