Today we had COLDfinches in our yard!

So my cousin from South Dakota heard about our cold snap this week and called to ask if we had furnaces in Florida. “Furnace”, how cute–around here they are called air conditioners, and we put them in “heat” mode for a couple of days a year! Well, cuz, you would have laughed to hear the hour-long segment of nightly news dedicated to the possibility of snow in Central Florida this morning. With a high temperature of only 37 today, we did get some sleet bouncing off our windows, but did not sight any white flakes. Oh well! It’s supposed to be 25 tonight.

I was very nice and went out in the cold to refill bird feeders this morning. The goldfinches rewarded me by pigging out. We had at least 16 of them at one point!
