|THE MORNING AFTER THE STORM|
Saturday, 9:30 AM. 35 degrees F at the ferry dock, 32 on the back porch. Wind SW, calm with stronger gusts. The sky is partly cloudy and hazy, the humidity 75%. The barometer is beginning to fall, now standing at 29.99", predicting rain for Monday and Tuesday.
I have to get a large bag of sunflower seeds today and get a feeder up, or the neighbors will have all the birds this winter. I did get a suet log up this morning, and hope the woodpeckers and chickadees will find it soon.
Most annuals are gone now, and snow covers the ground. It is melting, but not very fast. The hanging Geranium baskets on the porch are still blooming and looking good, in stark contrast to the wintry scene around them.
