Last week I mentioned a winter storm had it sights set on Charlotte.
It was predicted to hit Sunday morning and last through the day.
Early Sunday, like a child with hopes that school would be cancelled (I grew up before virtual learning) I sprang from the bed to look out of the window.
I ran downstairs for a better look.
With temperatures hovering around 30 degrees through out the day, we had a mixed bag of freezing rain and sleet.
The birds ate and ate!
I couldn’t get out on the patio to take care of their food, so I threw seed from the door.
When it got covered with ice, I threw more.
Later that night, Winter Storm Izzy moved out, but not before leaving behind a dusting of snow.
Another storm is in the forecast for Friday.
I’m so ready for spring!
