Dreaming of Texas

We got our first significant snowfall last night and while it is pretty outside, to me it’s a reminder of why we are getting ready to head Southwest.

While our FB friends ooh and ah, we are saying, "November 10th, give us a break."

Instead of reading about Rick Perry and Ted Cruz, I’ve been following the rare sighting of an Amazon Kingfisher at the Rio Grande Birding Festival and how hundreds of birders are clogging the highway to see it — and I bet they aren’t walking through slush.  We’ll be down that way in about three months.

"Get me out of here!"

“Get me out of here!”

This wet snow will probably be gone by tonight but it’s a reminder of how long the snowy, grey season can be in the Northeast.  We’ve been there, done that, for decades.  So, it’s time to take our blue values to some warmer red states and just stay out of political discussions, looking for birds, not bird-brains.
