Day 023 – January 23, 2013 – Wednesday

Weather
A very cold morning again. Cold and cloudy with steady light snow starting a little after 3 pm and continuing until after dark and then becoming lighter and probably ending around midnight. It was a very light, dry, fluffy snow – the kind that is so beautiful to watch come floating down.

Conditions
There was a little snow on the ground to start with but there was more grass than snow showing. The inch we got today was enough to cover the ground.

Temperatures (Official) (Fahrenheit, from TV or Weather Underground)
20 and 8

Temperatures Observed (Fahrenheit, my observations, mercury thermometer)
25 in early afternoon I think
22 at 6 pm

Precipitation
probably about 1 inch

Birds
cardinal – 2 males and 2 females, VERY unusual!!!, years ago there were 5 or 6 pairs around one winter, but I don’t remember seeing more than one pair (and their children) since then (although it may have happened).
juncos – 2

Other Animals
squirrel
mouse – outside, caught in the trap with stale cheese as bait
rabbits – several, after dark tonight
