March 20, 2011

The bright yellow of the feeder and the chests of the finches are a perfect match! They are feeding during a snowstorm in Reno, NV yesterday, 3/19/11. All the birds are gathering at the feeders! Yes! More picture opportunities! 🙂

More Snow for Reno

March 20, 2011

It’s the first day of Spring! Yesterday’s snow was gone by the end of yesterday! This morning we woke up to as much snow and it kept coming down! Here are a few of today’s pictures. Today’s snow was wetter and heavier.


New Snow for Reno

March 19, 2011

We woke up to more snow this morning than we anticipated when we got to town last Thursday night! Weather forecast obviously changed!! Have had several periods of time where we couldn’t see beyond the neighbor’s house across the street! Had a little over 3 inches, but most of it is already melted away!
