Well, look at this. Sierra Madre has frozen over, and all the little birdies are ice skating! Okay, the whole town hasn't frozen over. Just small parts of it, including this bird bath that the local birds and I received for Christmas. (This has also occurred in other local cities - check out this post from Petrea, of Pasadena Daily Photo.)
I know that this weather is not considered "cold" by the standards of much of the rest of the country, but we just aren't used to it. Neither are our birds - they tell me they are ready for a bath in warmer water.
The weather is supposed to begin to warm up today, but I've enjoyed this cold snap. It's been fun eating lots of soup, and wearing scarves and coats originally purchased for vacations in eastern locations. Like the birds, though, I think I will welcome a bit of warmth.
