Sunday was warm...over 70 degrees.
Monday we awoke to lightening and thunder...wind and hail!
Trash bins were blown over all over the neighborhood.
I made a cup of espresso and settled in to watch the storm at its best.
(Our south facing kitchen window beneath a wide over hang rarely gets a direct hit by rain. It was fated to happen today...not only had I washed this window this weekend, my car got washed and our son washed all the windows in his house in preparation for a visitor. Yeah...of course the weather would throw everything it had at us after all that work!)
The wind was whirling the finch feeder about but one finch was determined to get his breakfast in anyway.
Back and forth and round and round he clung to his perch and plucked out one thistle seed at a time.
I had to get a video of this scene...
The other feeder had its usual breakfast club going full bore despite being pounded by the hail/sleet/snow mixture.
March came in like a lamb...
and looks like it is going out like a lion.
