The Good Guys!
Since it's impossible to reach our compost bin because of the snow, we throw scraps out to the crows every day. These guys do a great job of cleaning up anything we toss to them. They are the best scavengers and show up twice a day to see if there's anything on the "buffet". It's getting so I can call them and they come flying in.
They're also great "watch dogs". They make a huge ruckus whenever they spy the fox in the yard.
Our steep driveway, fondly referred to as "The Luge" has been particularly slippery this year with all the snow so we've had to have it sanded several times already. It's now looking pretty bad. It's difficult to tell from the photo, but those side walls are about three feet high!
The really ugly part of the door yard right now is the nearly 7 foot high wall of nasty, dirty snow plowed up against the front of the house.
As cold as it has been, I imagine we will still be seeing this pile in June!
On the positive side, the garden has had plenty of insulation this year and the spring and summer show of flowers should be spectacular!
Life is good
