We get snow maybe once a year here; I told my daughter that a particular machine worked like a snowplow and then realized she had never seen a snowplow. We had slush that froze Sunday and two days off from school.

Monday when it was still very cold with a little freezing rain my daughter spotted a bluejay in a tree outside our window. The tree-trunk was covered with ivy and the bluejay was sitting on the very base of a small branch up against the trunk, surrounded by ivy. His feathers were all fluffed up so he looked like a baby bird. Bluejays live in much colder climates than this, but this one was cold.
