We've been having some dry weather since Christmas, and that's unusual. This is the time of year somebody in the sky turns on the sprinkler system and forgets to turn it off.
Rain mixed with snow is forecast for most of the week. This morning I
thought about what happens when we have this kind of forecast.
Immediately Bob says "I've got to get gas for the car." Why? Knowing
him, the tank is at least half full. Besides that, where are we going?
These are the kind of days people like us need to stay inside.
While he was out getting gas he was going to go by the grocery store and
pick up some things we might need, and lay in a supply of chili from
At 7:30 a.m. it was still dark outside. Now it is very gray and overcast. This adds to the angst.
I don't expect to get much snow but I do expect it to rain most of this
week, the rest of the month, as well as February, March, April, May, and
part of June.
It's this kind of weather that makes me long to feed the birds. I can't
imagine a bird starving here but I want to feed them for my enjoyment
on winter days. I've never been able to come up with a solution. There
just isn't a good place to put up a feeder here, but yesterday I came
up with something I hope will work.
No, I'm not crazy. That is a hummingbird feeder. There's one breed
that lives here in the Willamette Valley the year around. Occasionally
we've put out a feeder and I do remember going out every few minutes to
wipe the snow off so the hummingbirds could get to it.
(Bob just called me to the window and we have a hummingbird at the feeder. That didn't take long.)
I am under no illusion this arrangement will keep the seed dry. My best
hope is that it will help since they're hanging under a covered patio.
So far the hummingbird is the only customer we've had but the feeders went up late yesterday afternoon.
Now about that nice plump gray squirrel that crosses my patio multiple
times a day. When I went to the store I contemplated getting a squirrel
feeder and putting an ear of corn on it but my experience has been that
they will rip the corn cob off and take the whole thing, feeder and all
I did buy a small bag of squirrel food and will put a handful out
everyday. I'll explain to him the system of sharing, he gets his and
the birds get theirs. I'm sure he won't want to make me unhappy.
