Whoever thought of the saying “this weather is for the birds” is a clueless nincompoop. I bet my birdseed that the idiot who thought of this catchy phrase did so from the comfort of heat and safe from the elements. Meanwhile, I and my cousins, sisters, brothers, in fact all feathered friends and family, shiver and shake as that very nincompoop is waiting out the storm warm and dry.
Sitting upon my perch I saw this creature with pink wings staring at me through an odd contraption that would probably make a good nest for a smaller bird. She was brave enough to face the elements so as a reward, I perched while preening my best features in this land of snow. Don’t I look pretty as a picture? She thought so cause she did things with this contraption while her eyes kept staring at me in wonder. She just couldn’t get over how breathtakingly spectacular I am in all my ME-ness!
Now I know the groundhog forecasts early Spring yet Mr. Winter is showing His reluctance to move on over for Spring. Me thinks this is the last great show before Spring makes the check-mate move that designates Her reign at this Divinely appointed time. In the meantime, I’m just going to dodge the brrrr flakes as best I can and take shelter in a bush until this storm abates. Besides, I have lots of juicy tidbits to titter about with those of my many feathered friends recently returned from their beach vacations.
I watched as this strange creature with the pink wings walked away, steamy windows on her face all the while carefully cradling that potential nest. With no idea what she was doing, I just had to give her a lot of credit being out in this storm! Chirps for her!
And as for the evidence of Mr. Winter making His last stand, this creature is going to show you what she captured (or so a birdie told me), safely I’ll have you know, with no loss of life to anyone. Below is the great last Hoo-Rahhhh of Mr. Winter before Spring gives Him an elbow to the ribs saying, “Mosey on! I win!”
