It’s a perfectly calm normal day here in 10506-land. Warm enough to not need the furnace on. Warm enough to take a walk. Warm enough to not need a sweater inside. Warm enough outside for flowers to think it’s spring.
Yet my phone is ablaze with dire predictions of rain and wind mayhem. Town of Bedford alerts. Accuweather alerts. As if life on this planet will be blown away. Any second.
I see predictions of snow as well but only depending on whose weather you listen to. We were in the 3-6″ snow zone yesterday. Today the recalibration says 1-2″.
Meanwhile, I’m actually sitting outside as I type looking for the giant woodpeckers who live in aging trees. I spied one this morning but wasn’t fast enough to grab the camera. I those instances the phone isn’t good enough to zoom in. But hey, look what photographer Jeremy Black in Alabama captured on camera. A rare yellow cardinal. Stunning. I don’t know if the yellow is a mutation or an actual color that is just so rare it’s not seen. You bird watchers know?
Anyway, back at the ranch, I’m waiting for the little ones to come over for dinner and biding my time until the supposed nor’easter appears! Ho hum.
