Jeanette is shown yesterday adding hot water to the bird bath to keep it from freezing over. She has approached this challenge with an almost religious fervor, having to repeat this process many times a day. We have been snow bound for several days now and our most important tasks seem to be keeping the bird feeders full and the bird bath filled and thawed. We have shoveled out a path to the feeder and the bird bath, and have shoveled out the drive way. Now we await the great thaw.
