As I am writing this, a snow storm is raging outside, and most companies and schools have sent everyone home since noon. Six inches of the white powdery stuff have fallen so far, with more coming well into the night. By tomorrow it could add up to a foot of snow.
Looking through my files, I found an image of a sparrow from two years ago, right after a similar snowfall. It was perched on a branch of a magnolia tree near our bird feeder.
