The Big Thaw

Whew, we just had a big freeze on Sunday with lots of sleet.

This looks like snow, but it was actually a hard crust of ice, in some places a couple of inches thick.  I felt sorry for the birds so I tossed birdseed out onto the ice.  We had tons of birds all over the yard.  Of course, most of them flew out of sight every time I tried to take a picture.

We couldn't leave the house for about two days because the roads were treacherous.  It stayed below freezing for more than 48 hours, which is unusual for east Texas.

It finally warmed up enough to thaw the ice and looks like spring.  That's winter weeds, though, and not grass, so I'm not getting too excited.  We still have a bit of winter to go.

The dogs are sunbathing.
