Shortly after the spring equinox it snowed here and many farm animals have died! my bird feeder was destroyed and even though it hasn't snowed in about 4days there is still snow in the fields, and my back garden. There were people stranded and helicopters were needed to take food to certain areas, and one woman was airlifted to hospital to give birth.
YAY for spring.
Greetings, Cittasanto. Sorry to read about your animals and bird feeder.
We too have had considerable snow over the last few weeks, but this week has been grand. My wife and I have been walking with just light jackets on for the last few days. We have been enjoying the sun and the occassional cold breeze, which whips up over the lingering snow mounds in our yards and fields. For some reason the birds aren't too visible as yet, but you can hear them in concert early in the morning.
Hope things get better for you over the next few weeks.
What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
