  1. So one benefit of working from home is I get to spend a lot more time staring out my home office window at my backyard. Over the last week I've had these raptors visiting. In order a Red Shoulder Hawk, an adult Coopers Hawk trying to flush a little bird out of the sea oats, a Screech Owl, a Red Tail Hawk, and a juvie Coopers Hawk enjoying a breakfast of Starling. All of these pics were taken w my camera phone, some through the ocular of my bins.
  2. It has been decided for me that I am done snow blowing for today. I knocked out a bunch of driveways, parked it to shovel off my deck and when I came back she was bedded down under the hemlock tree right next to the driveway.
  3. I'm not an official or trained measurer here in Lionville, but we have conservatively crossed the 4" mark and its still dumping snow. The 4" was measured at noon and included any compaction since the beginning of the storm.
  4. Still snowing nicely in Lionville. The snowmen have survived since the first storm. Roads are covered. A Coopers Hawk stopped by the deck, checking out my bird feeder for breakfast opportunities. Probably about 2".
  5. Just switched to primarily sleet here. Pic od the size for reference.
  6. Seems to have remained all snow here outside lionville. I'm just below 600ft elev. Conservatively estimate 7". The propane fireplace table was bare yesterday.
  7. I'm with you. Smokin bones in the garage 😀
  8. Totally unscientific, but it looks like we got more snow today than we did with last week storm here. Probably the sleet last week just compacted everything. Still snowing moderately in Lionville
  9. Definitely over performed in Lionville. Check the upper left corner of the pic for our fox running through the back yard. What an absolutely picturesque storm. Two enthusiastic thumbs up. 20210207_092730.mp4
  10. Currently snowing nicely in Lionville area. I could only imagine our totals if we didn't get sleeved to death yesterday. Sometime Sunday night my next door neighbor had their first baby. That should be quite the labor story.
  11. In Lionville area, the flakes/grains started falling at 11:30am. It's a really pretty light snow fall now, with the deck and driveway whitening up. Looking forward to whatever we get. I got the 38" snow thrower strapped to the front of my John Deere. It's my chance to be the neighborhood super hero
  12. Here in Lionville, I measured 3 places this morning and got 8.5, 9 and 9. That includes the sleet and whatever compaction occurred overnight. Great storm, funny how you forget what snow is like after so long without any. Best part was I got to use ole' betsy on all my neighbors driveways.
  13. The election night sunset was spectacular. It was beautiful all over the sky, whether you were looking to the East, to the West.... wherever.
  14. This year is an irruptive year for Northern Finches. We are seeing a huge push of a few species of birds that would normally be wintering in the boreal forrest of Canada, primarily Purple Finches, Pine Siskins and Evening Grosbeaks. The Evening Grosbeaks are very rare for PA, love backyard feeders and are very cool to see. I've had them at my feeders twice so far since late October. They look a little like big overly decorated gold finches. Hopefully others will get to see them too.
  15. It's wild to see them fly over. Its a perfectly straight line of ~60 star like objects zipping across the sky. We've seen them a couple of times. Worth getting up in the middle of the night and watching next time their orbit brings them overhead. One thing I forgot to mention on the cams, is you can remotely rotate, pan and zoom them and use them for 2 way communication (they have a microphone and speaker)
