I saw a redwing blackbird under the feeder yesterday morning.
 
Unfortunately it was snowing on him.

Snowing here this morning.  High for the day about 25 degrees with a strong wind.  But, the sun came out this afternoon.  Driveways and walkways are covered in ice.  We shovel them off but when the sun melts the nearby snow it flows onto the driveways and walk ways then refreezes.  So much snow on the ground to melt.  It will be a long time before it looks like spring in NH. 


There was a news report on local tv that a hiker had to be rescued from Katahdin after he slipped off the trail down a steep drop off.  He was climbing with others.




Here in Central Florida, it's 80 today.   Lows all this week will be in mid to upper 50's, and the air is dry.   Because it was a cold winter (for us lots of days in the low 60's is cold, don't laugh), things are a little late blooming.  Baby-powder-scented Carolina yellow jessamine is in bloom at last.  They are trumpet-shaped blooms on vines that scent the air around them.  Also in bloom--redbud, Chicasaw plum, tiny white violets.  Trees are leafing out now too!  Lots of new calves in the pastures on the way to the trail.

60 degrees at 2:30 PM today.  That's 25 degrees above normal for this
date in NH.  But tomorrow it is suppose to drop back into the 20's.
The melted snow will turn into ice on the slopes.  Hiking trails will
be treacherous.  Also expecting heavy winds.  Suppose to be even
colder by Tuesday.   Massachusetts school have vacation next week so
the slopes will be crowded. Icy slopes are going to keep the ski
patrol busy.
