Not a joke !
This isn't an April Fools Day joke, it's April 2nd and this is what I woke up to today. Yes, that's about six inches of snow! As you can see, it's still coming down so who knows how much we'll end up with. And here I thought, with our upper 50 degree temperatures over the weekend, that Spring really had sprung. NOT! Back to using 4WD to get in and out of my road. And what in the world will all the songbirds, trees and flowers think when they venture out this morning?????
Born in Downers Grove, IL, I moved to Cody in 1981 after living in Boulder, CO for many years. As I enjoyed the outdoors and spent many weeks up in Wyoming going on horsepacking trips with friends, I decided to move here. I started Ironside Bird Rescue in 1987 after finding an orphaned Starling baby that had fallen out of its nest near my house. One thing led to another and after all these years the facility now has many different sized mews and flight barns for the exercise of raptors so they will be strong enough for release. I live in a 130+ year old log cabin with a corgi mix dog, her mother, a purebread corgi, a couple cats and many birds in a free flight aviary attached to the house. I'm now retired from a "real job". Along with rehabbing birds, I spend a lot of hours volunteering at our local Buffalo Bill Historical Center in the graphics department.
