Drizzled last night. Still warm this morning—although right about freezing. Little birds flitting about, making a lot of noice. Singing titmice. Chipping goldfinches. Hollering jays.
Took another morning hike with dog. Beech Hill was colorful under the overcast. I saw no birds at all—but heard five species.
Descending, I thought again about how crazy this winter is, weather-wise. Just a crazy, crazy winter.
I wonder if it’ll be followed by a crazy spring photoshop cs5 download.
