No one here in New England got much sleep last night I bet with the winds ripping through our towns knocking down not only trees but taking wires for electricity with them. We kept ours though I swear I do not know how. All night this house was slammed by 50 to 60+ MPH winds.
I woke to find one suet cage gone and dishes in my Bluebird feeders missing as well. Seed blown clear out of the feeders that hang up high. The hot tub I run for them was frozen all but the very center, the size of a golf ball they could get fresh water from.
I should have shot a video of our poor trees doing all they could to remain standing. Birds came but were blown sideways and off the limbs of their favorite tree and from the feeders I went out to refill. I finally gave up and scattered food all over the ground for them to fend for themselves and even chipmunks surfaced for a handout.
After my nutritional class on Zoom tonight I heated up one cup of this Kale, Black Bean, Carrot, Mushroom, Fingerling Potatoes(just a few), onions, garlic, a small piece of kielbasa sliced into thin pieces were all simmered in a organic veg. broth and I have to say besides being good for me it was so good. (photo lousy and yes beans were black Ha Ha )
I swore today with this continuing wind, which is becoming an aggravating weather issue, things would be different for the wildlife here come summer. I will be adding wind breaks and areas to hang feeders in a more sheltered type of place. I know you can’t control mother nature but I will slow her up a bit here at my place.
OK enough of me complaining about the weather I know it could be worse but I have driven through hurricanes in my rig that were much kinder lol man I should have shot a video but it was too cold.
Take care of yourselves.
