Snow Day–it’s for the birds!

Toronto experienced a lot of snowfall today. At our house we shoveled early in the morning, before work, and then by evening found another 8” or so, ready to be shoveled again… [shashin type=”photo” id=”238″ size=”large” columns=”1″ order=”user” position=”left”]

Pepper thought it was a great day on CATTV; lots of activity.


You can see from this picture that our mailbox ended up looking like a cake with too-thick icing [shashin type=”photo” id=”239″ size=”medium” columns=”1″ order=”user” position=”left”]


Same for the birdfeeders:

I didn’t get a picture of it, but throughout the day I kept seeing a robin in the park across the street. I’m sure he was regretting his decision not to fly south this year! (Sidenote: I had a conversation with the folks at WildBirds Unlimited recently, and they told me that there are always some robins that overwinter in Toronto. I had thought they all flew south. Kind of takes the wind out of the idea of sitings of robins being synonymous with the arrival of spring!)
