All of a sudden the weather made a right turn into a cold snap. It's supposed to get below freezing tonight. So we made up some faucet covers with supplies we had on hand. I took some batting (as in quilt batting) and inserted it inside a plastic bag. Gary put the bags over all our outside faucets and taped them on. Hope these work. We also covered some tender plants with sheets and towels.
During the day I noticed this cardinal sitting under the eaves on a shrub. I thought he was trying to keep warm in a sheltered area out of the wind. I felt sorry for the birds so when I went to the grocery store I bought some bird seed and put it out for the birds. But they had all gone to roost early. I hope to see them at the feeder tomorrow.
