I've had this feeder up since before Christmas, but today is the first day I've seen birds there. And how lucky to spot this woodpecker!

Winter in Stow and Hudson

From the Top and the Bottom

Tiger. (The ski slope at Boston Mills, not the golfer.)
Getting on the chair lift. Notice the skiers are blurry because they are moving, but the signs aren't. Well, okay, they are dark, but it was without a flash!
From the hill, down toward the lodge and parking lot at Boston Mills ski resort in Peninsula, Ohio.

Lovely January Evening in Hudson Ohio

On the way home from Mary's house, after Mavis Winkles, I just had to stop to take this photo. The snow looks so calm and I loved the reflection on the window of my car.

Cold. Cold. Really Snowy.

Did I mention it has been snowy and cold here?
Just get a load of these ice cycles!!

With all this snow I have become a "PRO" with the snowblower. I actually kinda like running it now, but don't tell my husband or it will become my job!!

Off to go skiing at Boston Mills for some lessons. I need a bit more confidence so I'm stop worrying about getting hurt!!

Stay warm!
