Hey Carl, looks like you folks got a nice dusting. Probably just enough for the local store to sell out on snow saucers. Enjoy, Raz

Imo....check into Goose Island state park and Lost Maples, both in Texas. Friends of ours, Les & Jane from Michigan, volunteer at both leading bird watching walks. Goose Island will probably be in Feb and Lost Maples late March into April. L & J are very personable and very good birders.

yes winter is here! Try coming up to Edmonton, Alberta! we have had a brutal month with snow and cold. For the last few days we hit -32c or about -27F. The poor trailer is snowed in and will not move till spring(yes the roof is braced). The radio said that Manning Alberta was the coldest place in the world on Thursday!

We got 24 + inches of snow with -23 Deg F temps & -35 below windchill and I still think we came out ahead looking at Oklahoma and texas

We lack a lot of snow removable equipment, hard to find really warm clothing unless ordered via catalogues, it doesn't usually last forever so no one shovels or plows' a lot of our housing is not built for extreme cold. Lots of 4wheel drive trucks so livestock can be fed round bales. The threat of ice is the hardest to deal with and we get more ice than snow. Just learn to hunker down and check on neighbors.

It's "kinda" enjoyable this time.
Usually it will snow pretty good and melt right away
leaving a slushy mess and lots of mud. But temps are
so cold and staying there we'll have this picture for some
time. Just wish there hadn't been the inch of ice before the
3-5 inches of snow.

Wife got cabin fever so took her out to eat yesterday.
I thought sure the towns would have done something with
the roads. Well, not surprised they didn't, but still........
I even took the turnpike thinking it would be better.

There was a little snow pushed aside, but nothing done to
the ice. Most roads were just packed down with what traffic
there was. Now that I see what they haven't done to the roads,
I told the wife we were not getting out again until I see the pavement
in front of the house......lol.

When I was driving I always hated going through Kansas City.
They seemed to get nothing but lots and lots of ice.

EDIT: I'm thinking next spring and summer will be a lot more
enjoyable since this should do the needed winter "kill" on some
of the pesky bugs................Ain't global warming wonderful?....lol

Imo. may I suggest the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge. It's 59,000 acres of coastal refuge attracting 392 species of birds and other native wildlife. It is considered the "Meca of Texas Bird Watching" with Whooping Cranes the main attraction. This special place caters to bird watching with towers and blinds. Located near Rockport, Texas it will be a long drive from Big Bend.

Thanks for tips re: birding in tx. Used to go to bosque del apache south of scorro, nm. To see whoppers. Also enjoyed seeing the morn/evening fly out/fly in of snow geese and sandies. Missed a lot of the migration this fall...sold farm and sheep/cattle so not so much being outside...a great disadvantage of moving to town.

carl and mike, pls. Get your state consevation dept to plant more trees along mo/ok border, maybe the folks in kansas/ark could do the same....

Other than Christmas and Big Bend, I have no schedule......do want to visit old college friends in the Cottonwood, Az. area.....years ago we all graduated from NAU in Flag.. Would be nice to see Sedona, Oak Creek Canyon, and Flag again.

In Texas hope to do some birding as there are a few more birds I need to add to my life list, if I can ever find the list I started some 30 years back. Excited about whole trip.....sold a farm, farm equipment, and live stock this past summer to finally retire at age 70 .... the bucket list was getting longer and the amt. of time shorter. Anyway, have a loose schedule and an open map at this point for 6 whole weeks! The weather will be a big factor regarding my route(s). Do you have suggestions for Tx.?

Sounds like a very fun trip! ! Yes, I do have some suggestions for camping and Birding in Texas ! !

Texas Parks & Wildlife Department | Texas State Parks


TPWD Search Results: winter birding

We live very close( 35/45 minutes) to Brazos Bend St Park spend lots of camping time there.Great hike/bike trails...loads of wildlife to watch,Bird Watching is high on their list of things & they have lots of blinds to watch from Brazos Bend State Park and then one last one for you to look at Birds, Bats & More

All the state parks are good camping some have full hook-ups,some just electric/water all have fire rings & picnic tables most of the sights are fairly big. If you will be here(camping in TX) I would suggest a state park pass.


Let me know if you come this way,feel free to PM me if you would like to.

Happy Camping,Lynn

December 16 Update

December 16 Update.

Well, the last couple of days have been pretty good.
Was fixing up a WOW computer we got for the m-i-l
and when I walked out the door this is what I saw.

Too much zoom.

My latest "after" shots almost look like the "before" shots......lol

This is with NO shoveling what so ever.
I did spread salt the first day when it was sleeting.

Do I have to wait for the next snow fall?

Had my taster all set for some chocolate ice cream
covered in chocolate syrup. Checked the freezer and
there was none. Nada. Found the ice cream bucket
in the sink all washed. Big disappointment!

Next best thing. Found some toaster pastries in the
freezer. Fixed up a nice batch of hot chocolate with
marshmallows. But wait, the snow is all gone today.
Should I wait for the next snow fall?

Okay. Hot chocolate and pastries it is with a touch of
coffee in the cocoa to add that just right taste.

Carl, you need to head south on vacation in that Snoozy. Take a road trip and spend some time camping near the ocean! I think you have cabin fever.

LOL. You may be right.
Daughter's birthday is January.
Thinking about taking her to Florida to see her big brother.
