Winter Storm Ulmer has been an incredible storm so far — we woke up to rain that quickly changed to sleet, then snow. The atmospheric pressure keeps dropping — Pueblo, Colorado, set an unofficial low pressure record already this morning, and it’s supposed to drop further.

But even in the middle of a bomb cyclone, animals gotta eat. And so we had a robin and a squirrel at the feeders this morning.

And there are those who must keep watch…

The feeder is in the top of the photo, Zoe is waiting in ambush behind the steps, as my husband took this picture from inside our sunroom.

We called her in after we took this photo. If an animal is trying to eat in this, it must be really desperate. And Zoe was glad to come.

Just after we took this shot, five hours into this storm, we had a significant peel of thunder.

Stay home if you can, and stay safe.

  1. Everyone needs breakfast, even during a blizzard. Hope you’re warm and safe while we hit the defrost cycle.

  2. Warm and safe and drinking lots of hot coco. 🙂
