The white Christmas is here with a vengeance. More than 8 inches of snow have blanketed our neighborhood, making travel this Christmas Eve a bit dicey, but pretty for those of us who stayed home.
Inspired me, for no particular reason, so make this brief bird video as snow fell Christmas Eve morning:
I also shot a few photos of birds coping with the white stuff. The planters appear largely empty, but I did give them a full load of birdseed later, after shooting the movie and the photos.
Finally, I’m more religious than this Australian singer, but still the song below is a powerful one about family, and seems a nice sunny counterpoint to the Iowa white Christmas. It made me think of a granddaughter and daughter in the UK and a son in Seattle and another daugther in Omaha–we’re away for the day, but always here, and we’ll be thinking of you.
Hope you enjoy and can sip white wine with your family, whether you are in the sun or in the snow. Merry Christmas.
