Washington’s been buried!

There was a snowstorm predicted for Wednesday… but it waited until Thursday instead.


I went into work in the morning for a bit to get some work done, the remote connection servers are swamped by everyone trying to WAH (work at home).  To make sure I didn’t get trapped at the office I left at lunch time.  All the stranded cars and the continued snow assured me I made the right decision.


Other than peaceful white coating, the weather has another fun benefit: wildlife. Our bird feeder has a constant crowd of patrons and our hummingbird feeders are helping the littlest customers stay warm (yeah, who knew that hummingbirds stayed here year round?). The cold also brought us a brand new visitor: a pair of coyotes. They must have come up from the park at the end of our street looking for food.


I was able to get some quick pictures of the hummingbirds, quail and coyote, they’re in our big snow gallery.


With the fierce competition for connectivity to Microsoft I won’t get much work done… but that does free me up to watch the show.
