This Weather Is for the Birds!

http://worldonline.media.clients.ellingtoncms.com/img/blogs/entry_img/2010/Jan/07/Suet_Feeder.JPG We’ve all heard this age-old saying before about brutally cold, nasty weather, meaning we greatly dislike waiting at bus stops in sub-freezing temperatures or wading through slushy muck to buy a gallon of milk.
