Flash! First Robin of Spring.

Pretty late for this area.  But for a ground forager; frozen ground, several feet of snow still covering everything and what should be open water is ice.  Took a later flight North, I guess.

First Robin sighting IMG_0610Didn’t come near the house either, the several feet of snow that came off the roof may have something to do with that.

Home skitish IMG_0611Home lost that bush IMG_0609I guess I lost that bush.  It had made it through many storms over ten winters but now I need to get another tree for the blue Christmas lights.

These photos are from 2009.

The weight of the up to six or seven feet of snow destroyed or damaged a lot of other items that went through the winter outside.Home bent IMG_0606My neighbors French Drain froze and his basement flooded, I lent him my spare pump and hose.   Never have we had to deal with flooding, snow and ice.  All at the same time.
