Sunshine, Blue Skies, Winter's Coming

We are in for a winter storm of ice and snow Thursday and Friday, "followed by bitter cold Arctic wind" for the weekend and next week. Oh, yeah, I can hardly wait. Predictions of power outages (not good when your heat and water supply are powered by electricity) and broken tree limbs are in the offerings as well.

In the meantime, the sun is out, the wind has abated a bit, and the birds are rejoicing at the full feeders. The Ghost Cat and his/her friend are regularly eating on my front porch now, and as the daffodils are pushing through the ground, surely better weather must be coming. And just think, only a week ago I was complaining of heat in South Africa. We are never satisfied, are we?
