Still February

February is a very busy birthday month in our family. The celebrations make this short month go even faster. In the background scenery winter is bustling through, this year with very little snow. Did you ever notice in mid February, snow or no snow, the birds begin to be heard again? I remember walking our old dog one day after work, with a foot of fresh snow on the ground and the birds carrying on as loudly as spring.  And spring is after all right around the corner.

Snow Moon

Tomorrow night is the February full moon, known to Native Americans in this area as the Snow Moon. Not very descriptive this year, snow has been lacking. The only real storm came before Halloween, nothing significant since. Makes for a more comfortable winter, too warm for ice, snow and howling winds, but a little dull as well.
