So, what did we get?
Friday; rain, wet snow, sleet, wind, more rain. My poor chickadees bathed in the birdbath full of slush.
Saturday; sunshine in the morning, and fine, dry snow starting after supper. It's still snowing, tiny, barely-there flakes that drift idly down, but do not melt when they land.
Midnight photos: a dusting of snow on the hydrangeas.
Conclusion: the sailor was insane.
