For about an hour, yesterday afternoon, it appeared the snowstorm was going to be much more serious than forecasted. The snow was falling heavily, the winds were becoming stronger.
Many of the birds had already hunkered down in their roosts to wait out the snow. But, there were a few robins that waited out the snow more in the open.
A couple hours and two inches later, the heavy snow had relented. The robins, in the open, returned their roosts for the night. During the overnight hours, everything turned into sheets of ice.
While today felt more like a day in late January or early February, the snow and ice melted away rather quickly under the bright sun. And, the robins were back to their springtime routine.
Another sign of spring.
