Patty: First there was sleet and now ThunderSnow! These are golf-ball sized, snow-covered rain balloons! As I looked out the window I discovered, to my horror, that all the bird feeders are empty and the suet is gone! The birds are hovering under the eaves, so when I went out to take this photo there was a flurry of feathering everywhere. After just a few seconds out there, my hair was completely drenched. I'm staying put! I think I'll make chicken soup.
