I guess the best way I could describe our winter weather this morning is to call it a kind of snowy drizzle. More snow than drizzle overall. Again, not many roads plowed but Pheebs and I were fine in the Jeep. I decided this winter not to put on the heavy-duty gription tires and so far we have been just fine with our ordinary tires. I have gone looking for slightly deeper snow and slippery ice to see how the ordinary tires performed and so far with the aid of 4-wheel drive I have not had a problem.

| A DRIVE DOWN BAYFIELD'S MAIN STREET|A swing through the countryside southeast of the village, then a stop at the Bayfield cemetery on our way back to lay down a few Jeep tracks around the snowy cemetery roads. With snow still coming down we were back home shortly after 10. It's a good thing we didn't have any wind blowing around today or it could have meant some very nasty weather.

I'm going to have to tape a big sign with big black block letters on the Jeep's steering wheel to remind myself that it is McDonalds that has the small 'Senior' coffee deal for $1.25 and not Tim Hortons!! For the second time in two weeks, I had to embarrass myself at a Hortons pick-up window wanting to know why they charged me full price for a coffee instead of the 'Seniors' rate. The lady at Bayfield's Hortons very nicely reminded me this morning I was not at McDonalds. And then she said, 'I like your hat', and with that, Pheebs and red-faced me were on our way:))
I think our front yard is turning into some kind of a zoo. We had black, gray, and red squirrels out front this afternoon as well as a bunny rabbit. And then there are all the birds and I'm certain our bird population is growing. I am seeing more and more pairs of Cardinals. Three pairs for sure and possibly more. I'm going to have to get a part-time job just so's we can buy more birdseed for that ravenous bunch outside our house.

January 3rd already. Just think, a month from now we will be into February steadily pedaling our way to March. If we keep up this pace I will soon be griping about summer's heat and humidity again. Oh, say it isn't so.

Lovely pops of color on your snowy dayReplyDelete
Once again, you've done some fine photos!! Glad the regular tires are working. (Fifty years ago, I moved to NY and was told to get snow tires for the winter. I had no clue. But sure enough, they worked! Of course I think I was driving a 1965 big old Pontiac of some sort. Who knows how much it weighed.Anyway, a novice survived two very snowy winters.)ReplyDelete
I love your "Zoo".ReplyDelete
Al, we have a neighborhood runner who comes into our yard now every day. I think she lives next door because I often see her early in the morning in their front yard sunning herself before she heads over here to find grubs and an occasional sparrow.ReplyDelete
Wonderful pictures today!ReplyDelete
