Warm Walk

It is too warm for November 3rd! It was 78 degrees when I walked this afternoon. I walked 2.68 miles on the track at AU. I was sweating! Global Warming is real! When I got home from my walk I saw this deer in the front yard. I got this close and he didn’t even get bothered.

One Last Snow

Everyone in the area thinks this will be our last snow. It snowed all day today. It started about 7:15 in the morning and didn’t end until about 8:00 this evening. The roads and sidewalks were too warm for anything to stick so I went to work on time. In the end we got about 3 inches of snow. Now the temperatures are dropping fast and it’s supposed to be really cold tomorrow with high winds. I do hope this is the last one. I’m ready for spring. I snapped a few pictures with my iPhone.
Before the snow started this morning, I filled the bird feeder at work. The birds came to the feeder right away and started eating. I didn’t have my big camera so I didn’t get any pictures. To help keep the squirrels away from the bird feeder I always put some seed on the windowsill. Sure enough a few minutes after I filled the bird feeder, the squirrels came to the windowsill to get some food. One sat there for a very long time munching on the seeds. I got really close with my iPhone and snapped a few pictures. It’s cute how he has his tail up over his body to keep the snow off. This was early in the morning so the snow hadn’t accumulated much.


I’ve seen on several blogs people posting pictures of cats on Saturdays. I don’t have a cat but have taken lots of pictures of cats over the years. This one is a vineyard cat taken in 2006. The poor cat was later hit by a car and killed. This cat used to hang out in the vineyards and would let us pet him while we were harvesting grapes. Other times when we were there to enjoy some wine, the cat would come around looking for nibbles and rubbing against our legs. It was a great cat. It was sad when it was hit by a car.
