This year it's a whole different story. In the past 24 hours we've received about 6" of fresh snow. It's pretty and pretty annoying at the same time. Seed packets are strewn on the dining room table, staring at me with anticipation. "Not yet," I whisper.

The snow finally stopped falling and blowing so I let the girls out of the run this afternoon. It didn't take them long to realize their world had shrunk considerably, again.
Check out this sequence of photos from today's very brief outing:

So, they were out for about 3 minutes today. I'm sure they appreciated the chance to stretch their legs and wings but I'm guessing they're as tired of sprinter as we are.
