Another snow storm

Yesterday, we got about 10 inches of snow. This came almost as a surprise after a spring-like day with a high of 60ºF.

In the morning, the snow was coming down pretty hard, but three gardeners got busy with the shovels and the salt-spreader.

Looks like the birds are fine. There are still some rosehips and berries for the robins and starlings, and the sparrows are resourceful city birds. There was a large flock near the fence, dashing back and forth between the safety of the garden and a trash can where someone had tossed some bread. And pretty soon, all of this snow will be gone again. Rain is in the forecast for the weekend.
