Into the Cold

Dateline Cattaraugus County

It was, at first, a gentle homecoming. The weather was mild, the birds were singing, I could even sit on the porch listening to the trills and chirps and the shrieks of the bluejays, watching a couple of hardy chipmunks, Chippy Mark lV and Chipolata perhaps, foraging busily around. There was a red streak as a cardinal (of the feathered kind)  landed on the crabapple tree. and little green shoots were already shoving upwards in the flowerbed.
  But then things went rapidly downhill....

 It is now getting cold. Seriously cold.

So as I sit huddled in a blanket, watch this space for some more flashbacks to Florida.....
