~Snow and record-breaking temperatures…

October 14, 2018, Loveland, Colorado

Received about three inches of snow overnight.  Before daylight, woke up to the sound of a snow ploy, on our hill. Tonight will be 15F, a record low for this time of year. Spend the day inside; cooked some dried Black-eyed Peas and drank lots of hot liquids. Brrrrr!

Starting tomorrow our temperatures will be more moderate.

I took this photo looking south, in the backyard.

The birds have been flying in and out of this evergreen tree all day trying to stay warm.

The Juncos have been a challenge to capture, so no photos. Please excuse the poor quality of these bird photos, because I took them out the window.
