Well, I survived the first power outage of the day. Only lasted about 30 minutes, from 11 o'clock to 11:30am. This was right after the heavy snowfall that dumped about 2 more inches on top of the ice field that is my yard.
The birds are staying busy. I have broken the ice off most of the feeders, but not all yet. It is hard to keep the snow off the platform and ground feeders.
Not doing too badly so far, but I'll bet there is more to come.
