|First steps onto the path.|
For first time visitors, I've been walking about 2 miles, almost every day, along Seattle's Waterfront Trail. I've been snapping photos along the way and sharing them here on the blog. Today's walk was my first, on this trail, with snow and ice. At start of today's walk temperature was 19F (-7.2C)
|Coldest day in a long time.|
A little after 10AM
|I decided NOT to try walking down these steps.|
Went back and took the longer way around.
|Looking mostly to the east.|
Grain terminal and downtown in the distance.
Both walk and bike paths are ice and snow covered.
|I am curious about these ducks.|
I'm pretty sure the large ones are
Canada goose ... but the small one?
|Google tells me it might be a green winged teal.|
|After hundreds of walks without |
snow this seemed like a dream.
Reality is weird at times.
|No takers for the bench.|
Some kind of critter went by.
|Last evening at dusk.|
My concern was for the little hummingbirds
overnight with low temps around 17F (-8.3C)
|The thing below the feeder is a heater.|
It is simply a small light bulb in a container.
It gives off just enough heat to keep the liquid from freezing.
|This one is for my record book.|
Total snow for this storm at my place ... about 4 inches.
