Our rain storm today, swiftly blowing out to the west this evening
We are quite fortunate in Washington state, weather wise that is, compared to the Northeast part of the United States. I have been listening for days to the weather folks explaining the huge storms that have been hitting the eastern portion of the U.S. Tonight I read some of the blogs that are located in the snowy part of our country and shudder to think what they are going through.
On the blog Slow Cook I read how they lost power last night for a few hours and when morning breaks they have to get out to the barn to feed and care for their farm animals -- trudging through cold temps and very deep snow! At the time of my reading they could not get out of their drive as their truck was stuck there.
Tabor over at Room Without Walls writes about the flocks of birds fighting over the food available from her feeder. They are fighting for survival she feels. She has photos of all the birds at her feeders.
It has been a tough winter for not only many humans but also the wild critters. I give thanks to the folks out there that are having a tough time getting around but still can find time to care for the animals, both wild and domestic.
