OK, so, the snow situation:

Yeah, we got dumped on pretty well last night. XD Maybe just shy of six inches of the stuff? I ran around this morning taking pictures while it was all still smooth and white and perfect, so I may try and get those uploaded later (but more importantly, right now I must drink my delicious hot chai).

I did have a mini-avian emergency though, as the robins and sparrows were all queuing up on my balcony to get to their seed mix... and it was all buried. O_o I had to sweep off a load of snow so they could get at their food.

Edit: I have two - TWO - robins on my balcony, eating the food together and not fighting. :D One stood and postured a bit when the other one came along, but then they got back to eating. I'm glad I put out two piles of food.

I'm surprised the Robins stuck around for the winter! :O

Despite the snow having not been a big issue until now, I thought after all these centuries, they'd still migrate.

Nice to know you're keeping them fed, though, since they are there. :)

Oh, whoops. XD I should have mentioned, our robins are a different species to those you get in Canada. British Robins are dumpy little aggressive brown puffballs that are used to our rubbish weather and don't migrate. They're sort of a symbol of winter, over here - somwething like 50% of Christmas cards have a robin on somewhere XD

That's actually interesting. :O Your Robins are a symbol of winter, whereas ours are the symbol of spring. :) Gotta love those climatic differences. :)
