Winter in Gambier

Well, as many of you know, its been a tad snowy and cold recently. We has some overnight lows below -20F and have changed a flat tire at 2F. The river froze over and right now our road and driveway are quite covered with ice thus making getting in and out tricky. I have some winter time photos on Flickr as usual

Here's a picture of our snowy road in the middle of one of our snow storms:

Here is the river early on when is first froze over. It was frozen for a couple of weeks:

I have started birdwatching, so I put a bird feeder in the back yard. Here is a picture I snapped TRHOUGH my binoculars, hand held, with autofocus on, through a window ... didn't turn out too bad considering. This is a Yellow Bellied Sap Sucker, a Northern Cardinal, and some sparrow on the other side of the feeder.

Lastly, we just got some beautiful Knotty Pine bookshelves installed today. Our books have been in boxes until now. I am off to unpack them finally after I finish this post. Check out the pictures on Google's Picasa Web Album:
