Today was a snow day. The governor ordered a state of emergency because of all the snow and freezing rain. We stayed in almost all day because our parking lot and the the roads were bad! It was interesting to listen to the freezing rain come down. Snow falls silently, but the rain kind of tinkles when it falls. I noticed when we were in all that day, that I didn't see ANY birds or squirrels in the wooded area behind our apartment. I always heard that birds fly south in the winter, so I wondered where they had gone now???
Here's a picture of our back yard just after the snowfall.
