The eastern half of our Country has been covered by a deep blanket of snow. Luckily, where I live we just got a small sample (1 inch) of that gigantic snowstorm that has buried many cities and literally has affected the daily lives of many millions of inhabitants. Paralyzing rail, road and air traffic. These conditions will translate to billions of dollars loss to everyone involved.
We got some snow dusting for a few windy hours but then the sun broke opened through the clouds and gray sky to give us a bright and sunny afternoon! This morning the snow was almost all gone. I felt very confident of my estimation of not getting large accumulations, instead, I prepared my camera to be ready and shoot some wintery photos. The birds were active and seemed happy in a way despite of the ice and not so much snow. I even heard some birds singing. It was music to my ears!
