How Cold Is It? DON'T Ask!
That angled water in the bird-bath - an inch thick - is showing no signs of melting at 2 pm in time for tonight's hard-freeze warning. Brass monkeys, real or mythical, had better watch out. It's definately going to be a high-shrinkage night!
The "Good News" is, clients attending our impromptu "Bird, Bath & Spa" facilities appear to be mixing well, amicably sharing the dining facilities without to much squawking and joining forces to fend off agressive interlopers. Rabbits and squirrels are also being kept at bay by Basher, who's presence on deck is a useful deterrent, asleep or awake.
While hawks, and an occassional eagle, circle within eyesight, they have not moved in on the small-fry - yet!
So far the "dripping-tap" ploy seems to have worked, in preventing stilled water in pipes, from freezing and bursting.
And it isn't even Winter (officially) until Next WEEK!
