Nuts and Bolts

     The first thing that came to my mind when I looked outside of my window this morning was nuts and bolts. Why on earth would that come to my mind? Because it is part of a familiar cheer, "Nuts and Bolts, Nuts and Bolts, We got SCREWED!" 

     I apologize for the language this morning but that’s how I felt when I saw no new snow on the ground.  What a major disappointment after all of the hoopla about a snowstorm and promises of 8-12 inches of new snow.  Not a flake fell on the ground at Voyageur.

     I guess I should look on the bright side.  The temperature got down into single digits so at least the mud in my yard is frozen. 

     In other Voyageur news…  I went to Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center with Abby’s class on March 9-11th and had a fabulous time.  I learned so much at the classes and can’t wait to go back.  One of the classes was about birds and they caught a redpoll to show us among other things how they band a bird to learn more about their behavior. 

     Now that I recognize a redpoll I have an entire flock of them at my feeder.  They are busy beautiful birds and I am so glad they are here.  Who knows, maybe they are here because the snowstorm isn’t.
