Hello Sharon, that picture of Mattie always makes me smile:)

Factoring in wind chills, it is supposed to get to 5 to 9 degrees below 0 tonight! DEFINITELY GOING TO BE A 3 DOG NIGHT. Good thing I have 4 dogs.

Hello Megan & Mits

Thanks for the heads up Mits.

Snow Squaw outside - Visibility Zero

eagle-eyed sharon said...

Mattie makes me smile too, most of the time. But she has great potential of being a little turd sometimes too! :)

Mits said...

Partly cloudy and 32°, little brezzy but not bad yet. Hubby wants to go to the ocean sometime tomorrow, I want to stay home, how's that for a change?

Hello Sharon............

My lawn was covered within minutes of the snow starting. Don't think it will last long...it started too fast.

Live feed is back up.

I don't think Steven has enough to do today....he's been fooling around taking pictures of the eagles and putting us up new threads :):)

We love you, Steven!

Hello to all, especially Megan, I was worried about you. Are you able to read the blog even if you can't get in to post?

It's snowing here off and on;I don't think it will amount to much, but it is getting colder.

I'm sorry I disappeared, but as Nilla knows my Mother fell Monday afternoon; we thought that she was ok, just shaken up and bruised, but Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning she was in a lot of pain if she tried to put any weight on her left leg. Her surgeon sent us to the emergency room at City Hospital, where we spent 8 hrs waiting for a doctor and a cat scan, which showed three hairline stress fractures in her pelvis. No surgery, just rest and pain control while it heals. We've been dealing with that, trying to get home health care involved, and reorganizing our lives.

Nilla, the computer seems much happier. Iris, thank you for the info on erasing e-mail. Things fell apart about 10 minutes after I read it, but I did have a chance to try and it is fantastic! Thanks to you and Nilla.

Jo, I read your posting about the 10th Mountain deployment extension. I'll keep you and the family in my prayers.

The Blackwater egg has been very exciting. I appreciate so much your postings.

Snow Advisory - 1 to 2" of snow between 7pm and 4am for the northern part of MD including Baltimore

Paula, you sure can borrow a dog. :)

That wind is so cold. It has dropped 2 degrees in the past few minutes. Walking in weather like this reminds me of Little House on the Prairie!

Hi Sandra, sorry to here about your Mom. Some days when blog is long I can't even read it all, usually I can, but can't get it to ever open all the way let me post. Honestly, been trying to work out some issues here at home, and not been real good company.

Hey Sandra, which Shepherdstown web site were you referring to last week? I can't find any with job listings. Off to fill the birdbath, put out seed, and head to the bus stop. Brrrr..

Hope everyone is in and staying nice n warm... Have afunny story to tell ya'll that another store manager told me about his encounter with an eagle that happen to be on his balcony of his 9th floor high rise building near Washington DC .. could have been George or MARTHA AT THAT TIME....

Eagle at osprey nest/BW.

FLORALGIRL----Did you check with a florist---Or do you not want that kind of job---What kind of work are you looking for?----Wish I could help you----Just want to see you SMILE---

Nilla said...

Eric said he came home from work and opened his door and heard noise coming from his porch ( 9th floor patio) well he looked out and saw feathers all over the floor and there set a large bald eagle eating this pigeon.. Eric is funny any how he said he looked at it it looked at him and Eric DIDNT MOVE... Finally after awhile the eagle took off leaving the caress for him to clean up...lol i wanted to show him our eagles n blackwwater while he was here but he said NO THANKS .. his experiance was enough with eagles... i laughed at him...

Oh, Sandra, sorry to hear about your Mom, but sounds like it could have been worse!

MIts,
Has your sis been Christmas shopping ? :)

Oh, Nilla that is hilarious!

normabyrd said...

FLORALGIRL---I googled Shepherdstown Newspaper---then go to classified---list of jobs----HAVE YOU TRIED THAT?

Nilla said...

The reason i say it could have been either George or Martha was he lived down along the River in DC...

Nilla said...

Sandra i am so sorry i hear about your mother, yes i knew she had fallen , she walked to bathroon that day and was so chipper... Glad she is on the mend now, and be extra carefull walking with her walker...

Hello Everyone, I've been busy getting the house ready for company and we are going out with neighbors tonight, so this will be short - maybe bbl.

Hey Mits, I still have my tree up in the living room (it's kinda small though) and just took the wreath off the front door today! Do you suppose it's because I don't have a dog either?:>((( And, Thanks for the great pictures!

Sandra, sorry about your Mom, I know that is painful will add her to my prayers. Glad the stuff I sent helped your computer problem with OE.

Our Belle looks like she is settling down - maybe for the night? Wouldn't that be nice??? or maybe not if the cams aren't going to cooperate.

Love and Hugs and Prayers to you all, just in case I don't get back until late.

No snow here right now, 24°, with the wind chill it feels like 14°. Gonna get even colder later , cold front coming in, wind is still gusting...she picked a cold night to spend in the nest. Did someone say they saw 2 eggs at BW? Haven't looked lately, too many cams open really slows computer down..

Liberty later flew out and we have Belle sitting in that hole you all talked about and spending what looks like the night exciting exciting oh my. Then before I started writing this a wonderful Eagle friend Nilla called to tell me about Belle. Boy if I would have been driving and not home for about 1/2 hr I would have wrecked lol.

Sandra God Bless Your Mom and may she heal up fast..sorry she had that fall.

I'm glad I waited til tonight to respond to Loraines' (KENT) e-mail from today. I sent her a pic of Belles' 1st night in the nest. Sent e-mail from her to eaglet momsters twice, but I guess it does not accept pictures. Hope the rest of you on my list got it.

I'm sticking with the Eagle Cam - Would be great if she stretched her legs once in a while BUT....... I don't think an eagle starts shifting around until that egg is under her - like the movement of the BlackWater Lady last night. IMHO
