When the forecast calls for snow, people go a bit crazy here in the south. Everyone heads to the grocery store in a frenzy, frantically stock-piling the necessities of milk, bread and toilet paper. I, too, join the maddening crowd, but my necessities run along the lines of Folgers and Entenmann cinnamon donuts – the ones with the crumb topping.
Once the white stuff covers the ground, like it did this morning, the birds show up in their own frenzy. My Blue Jays were up early, frantically squawking until I laid out a spread of peanuts. Then they showed up, one after another, to load up on this necessity. Here are seven that stopped by today.
And now, off for a cup of coffee and a donut!
