Spotted in the Back Yard

Three robins, one blue jay. I can't blame them for wintering in Florida, because from what I've seen on television, it's darned cold Up North.

Yesterday, I was reading an article on a Madison, Wisconsin newspaper's web site. There was a little weather widget showing the predicted high for the day there as being -1 degree. No, that's not the wind chill; throw in the blustery winds and it was far worse than that.

Well, it's winter time. It's supposed to be cold up there in the winter. All of this talk about global warming probably made some people believe that they'd soon be planting palm trees in Fargo, North Dakota.

Ain't gonna happen, folks. Ain't gonna happen.
