don't freeze your tookus

This Black-capped Chickadee must be tired because it's sitting down. Doesn't it look like as if the bird is sitting on the ledge? I don't know if I've ever seen a bird sit on it's tookus.

.

It is amazing what a difference we have in temperature from when I took that picture. It was just just two weeks ago!! Today, we have sub-zero windchills. Today is the kind of day when everyone who steps outside has only one objective... to get back inside.

.

Okay, I have to go outside right now to warm up my car. I'm just glad I can come back inside and leave it running until it is warm enough to transport a live human. It is so cold outside, I might need to wear a mouthpiece, just to keep my chattering teeth from cracking and breaking off... Brrr!!!

The "sitting" Chickadee is cute.

I don't miss that cold midwest winter wind a bit. Stay warm and don't forget to wear your mittens.

Ah yes, I woke up to 14 degrees this morning but it warmed up to 30. Cute picture of the bird. Stay warm!

Teeth are chattering down here as well. I hope you (and the bird) managed to stay warm.

Yup. I've got my layers gloves and hat, and Chapstick and more layers ready to go, but I lost my favorite scarf (muffler), Gaelyn.

Aaah, 30 degrees would be nice and toasty Denise, provided that the wind and humidity were right.

George, I don't know how animals survive these winters out there!

Chris, I forgot to use one of the few phrases I remember from my high school French class. "Asseyez-vous la."

We are experiencing nearly the same temperature as you. I will need some hot chocolate tonight.

I hope it doesn't get too cool in Florida. My mother lives there, and her fragile system can't deal with the cold.

That is much too cold for this time of year, Imac. I'm glad to see you back!!

We have been having very cold mornings too. When I walk in the morning I wear 6 layers of clothing!!!
