Snow Fun

Our unusually arctic weather continues. Yesterday, I went with Sarah to Audubon and spotted some varied thrushes picking seed off of the sidewalk

I considered a walk down to Balch Creek, but feared a tumble down the slick, icy trail.

Today we walked around Dawson Creek Park and enjoyed the snow and great views of ducks.

Most of the ducks were mallards, but there were a few buffleheads, hooded mergansers, ring-necked ducks, and wigeons mixed in.

The doug firs and oaks looked quite nice with their dusting of snow.

I hope it stays white for Christmas, but I would not bet on it.
