We're not only in an arctic air pattern, we're in a pattern where we're getting snow storms and squalls every couple of days. View out my window at work last Thursday. Look carefully and you can see the snowflakes, which were giant. Thankfully this was only a squall so the roads were fine to drive on when it was time to go home.
Friday we had cold temps and sunshine. It does help to see the sun and I'm lucky to have a wall of windows in my office.
Saturday morning I got up to work out and quickly checked the outside temp. Not that I was going to run outside as we still don't have good access to our sidewalks, but because I know my garage will be about 10 degrees warmer. I wanted to get a good run in for Lori's Heart Healthy Weekend event. Even though I was stuck on the treadmill watching a couple TV shows, I got in a good run, which equals endorphins! Yay for endorphins!
While I was watching the storm I noticed something moving the bushes there on the left so I grabbed my real camera to zoom in and voila! Birds in the bushes in the snow!
