First cardinal song of 2017

On February 16, I heard my first cardinal song of the year! And Lily saw a red flash as a male bird flew past her. Mary Ann heard the cardinals a couple of days later.

The kids have only had 4.5 hours of school in the last 2 weeks – several snow days, a strike day, an embedded day, and Heritage Day today. We had three storms blow through – the first was ¬†disappointing, the second wasn’t! It was a wintry, windy nor’easter that dumped around 60cm of snow. Another 40cm came a couple of days later leaving some major snow banks around town, and some excellent snowshoeing.
