Sunday morning when I left for church, sleet had covered everything and made driving quite treacherous. Witnessing several accidents in Harvard, I turned around made the trek back home. A few hours later the temperature had risen from the twenties into the high forties and the sleet converted to steady, heavy rain.
As I sipped on a cup of coffee, I stared out the window and witnessed something I had never seen in all our years on the pond; a heron, walking on the ice. I was able to capture a few photos of him as he gingerly walked across our view. As I scrolled through the photos on my computer, it was like the old flip-book cartoons and it looked like he was skating across the ice. I cropped a photo for this post, that is why the picture is grainy. Stay warm! Stay dry! Pour yourself another cup of coffee and go look out the window.
