Not that I have any issue with the whole thing - I just think its awesome that those birds recognised a possible meal and went after them!

ICE, ICE, BABY!
More often than not, there is a thin layer of ice off aaa_condo when I wake up in the morning. Strong winds today kept the ice at bay - and strong winds all week will likely mean the same... The area of "fast ice" (in gray) - has increased a lot recently. That's pretty much "solid" ice that is locked in place, unlike the red stuff which is subject to frequent changes.
COLD stuff -
Hope you're enjoying the cold... These aren't "exact forecasts" but the GFS continues to hint that we're in for more and more blasts of cold air!!!
24 hours (away)
360 hours (away from now) - cold blast after cold blast!
