After I mentioned to a friend that the birds were singing outside, he said he thought all birds went south for the winter. I said, "This IS the South" and emailed this photo that I took from my window of a cardinal in the Harry Lauder's Walking Stick in the back yard. He asked how he could be sure it wasn't photoshopped and I told him I don't have those sorts of photoshop skills.

The weather report said "brutally cold" this afternoon, then "dangerously cold" tonight. Nice. Next up, "horrifyingly cold" and "holy mother of god batshit crazy cold."
The on-line report says, "Dangerously cold morning with brutally cold weather all day long! At least there will be sunshine!" What is wrong with them? Those are not happy statements. Give me cloudy and warm enough not to freeze the air in my lungs. It's -2 degrees but "feels like -8." And by "-8" they mean "hell."
I was almost giddy when the temperature briefly rose to 32 today. That's right, we were UP to freezing. There's a reason why the worst circle of hell, where Satan lives, is frozen. Dante knew what he was talking about.
