Not a Wintry Mix

IMG 2829

Yesterday we had about 2.5 inches of wet snow. It stuck to everything and made it all look very Christmas-y. Very nice indeed. It won’t be melting either since we are to have below freezing temperatures through the end of this week when it’s predicted we get yet another storm on Saturday. Right now we’ve heard everything from another wintry mix to 3 to 5 inches of snow first, then ice, then rain. Both my neighbors have their Christmas parties planned for Saturday and Sunday, so I hope they still get a good turn-out. All we have to do is make it across the street so I guess at least we’ll show up.

Nearly every night I am awakened by this sound. It penetrates through the closed windows. Very eerie. At first I wondered if it was a bird of some sort, but no, it’s the fox. It makes other odd sounds too. Sometimes it sounds like it’s right under our window, while other times it’s in the distance. The sound really carries in the moist, damp air. I don’t mind having it around but I do think it’s the reason we don’t have any turkeys anymore. I miss the turkeys. I’m not sure if it’s still living under the side deck or not since I haven’t actually seen it in a while, but the dogs check out the hole almost every day.

If you want to see our weather you can always check out our weather cam which is now aimed at the front of the house. (Note: images stop at sunset.) You might even catch a glimpse of me once in a while!

The front of your house looks really nice!  We didn’t even get measureable snow here just a dusting.  Might be different for this weekend. Working some overtime on Saturday so hope it doesn’t get too bad until I get home. BTW I tried to listen to the fox sound but got an error message.

I couldn’t hear the fox sound, either. Got sent to a weird website!!!

Your decorations are pretty, especially the tree in the window upstairs. Have you ever done colored lights?

 

C, thanks. Sorry you couldn’t hear the sound, the link works for me.

Bigsis, huh, you couldn’t hear it either? Maybe you don’t have the flash player for it. Sorry about that! That tree in the window is a pre lit pull-up tree. We did colored lights last year but since the garlands are pre lit and the tree too, they are white. The colored lights looked pretty good last year though.

I’m at work so I’m going to try the fox sound later. Love the weather cam, though!

The foxes in our neighborhood make VERY weird sounds at night. When I first heard them I thought, “What the heck is THAT?!”

Steve, I’d be interested to know if you’re able to listen to it, so please let me know! I would hate to have a link up that no one can access! Check out the weather cam tomorrow since we’re getting more snow!
