After the January Storm – A glimpse of what’s on the way

image

During January we had a snow of about four inches – this was it.  If you look two posts below you’ll see another view.  LOOK OUT! Starting tonight a BIG STORM moves through the Midwest.  “Linus,” the Weather Channel is dubbing it, with more than twice the accumulation you see here.  As much as Nine Inches may fall in the Peoria, Illinois area.  Other areas of the Central States will receive more or less.

Preparing the Bicycle/Walking/Running Track for use

image

If you’ll scroll down through my images you’ll see the completed track – if you haven’t already seen it from a previous viewing.  This was a railway and all the track and timbers had been removed, obviously, by the time I took this shot.  You can just see the tractor at the top of the image.  My wife and I wondered when the surface would be applied -we soon found out.  A few days later we looked out and the blacktop surface was completely poured.  We still don’t know how they did it without us seeing the work being completed – the track is right off the back of our property.

A dusting of snow on the Sidewalk

Two days after a four inch January 2015 snow a dusting of new snow settled on our freshly shoveled sidewalk leaving this powdery pattern.

Cardinals feeding on a Snowy Morning

A few days ago we received a light snow and instead of going to shelter the Cardinals stayed to feed.

Wally, the bi-colored Squirrel

Say hello to, Wally.  We recently had a Black Squirrel at our  feeder and now we have a bi-colored squirrel. (I hope bi-colored is a word.). If not, I just coined it.
