Sorry for the “Non-Post” , went to the lake, water was low, got the Pontoon Boat off the lift, and out of the water on the trailer, after charging the “Starting Battery”.

Next was to get the Boat Dock, Boat lift, and the Son-In-Laws Boat Dock out of the water. After towing the Pontoon home (behind the Motor Home), we had to rearrange the garage and put the pontoon away for the Winter.

The Motor Home is still in the driveway, and No birds came to the feeders on Monday. Tuesday/Wednesday things returned to almost normal. Then came Wednesday night, temps 50 and falling, by 5:00 AM, thunder and rain, 38 degrees, by noon, 36 degrees and “SNOW”. Good thing ground is warm nothing sticking, melts as soon as it hits.

Forecast is for “Warming snow stopping” by 6:00 PM and a high of 40, bird activity so far has been Chickadee’s and the Nuthatches busy storing seeds, (stop at feeder get seed fly away) just that quick.
