late afternoon light and early morning geese






We had another Saturday snowfall this afternoon; the first one at the beginning of November was noted and hastened the buying of snow pants, hats, mittens, and various outerwear items. So after saying goodbye to visiting friends, out they all trooped, Kate only lasting a few tromps around before she reconsidered her plans and came in. The other two whooped it up in snow angels and sledding before heading in for hot cocoa and marshmallows to the neighbor girl's house. Then later they emerged for another try before darkness and dinner came. The river is still flowing freely but with freezing temperatures and potentially more snow for this week, the forming ice will still this slow current and the geese who spend their days lounging around in the frigid waters will have to find a new spa.




If you take a moment and listen to the geese in the short video below, I believe you will hear what I'm quite sure they were warning each other about as I approached: "Human wearing pajamas!!!"
