First Taste of Winter

012B.edited.tif

A Male Northern Cardinal copes with with the first taste of winter in Eastern North Carolina.   A fast moving blast of arctic air armed with snow, sleet and freezing rain  dipped into southeastern NC Friday and Saturday night.   We were hoping for snow.  It’s not as hard on plants but alas, we got a big dose of freezing rain which coated everything with a thick coating of ice.  Fortunately the power stayed on and there was little damage to our shrubs and plants.  The ice was gone by Saturday afternoon and we’re looking for a nice warmup next week.  Proof again that if you don’t like the weather down here, just hang on for a day.   Thanks for the visit and have a great evening.
