You can just see the tips of the yucca plant poking up on the lower right side of the picture. And in the one below, the newspaper is swinging around on the mailbox in the upper left. It'll be awhile before that's retrieved!
And the little tree that the birds use as a staging area on their way to and from the bird feeder is completely empty. The way the wind is blowing, I wouldn't want to be flying, either! Once things ease up a bit, this tree will be full of chickadees, various finches, cardinals, woodpeckers, and more.
It's not supposed to begin slowing down until noon. No sense shoveling until then. For now, I'm off to start a pot of chicken soup, and maybe get a loaf of bread rising. There may even be a blackberry pie left in the freezer to pop in the oven....
Weasley and Ginny are tucked up safe behind the naked Christmas tree. I hope everybun else is staying safe and warm, also.
