The wind began to make the window whine, an eerie sound in the night. Polar cold was moving in quickly after a few days above freezing. It reminded me of a house I had lived in as a kid that often was real loud when windy, and wondering if that house was alive or just complaining. Snow has melted on some slopes , yet remained along others. A fast melt created large ice fields along the river, making it hard to amble about in some areas. I pulled on a sweater and listened to the night, wondering what would be there to greet me in the morning.
The sun leaves and snow starts just for a few minutes.
If you look at his legs, one has a band on it. We haven't banded in this area for three years so this is an old timer. Always nice to see old friends.
Sun followed by brief interludes of snow changed the day back into winter cold.
