Greetings ardent readers! This is The Daily Bone and I'm your steadfast doggie reporter

I am standing in the back yard, and as you can see, it's quite sunny out. But don't let that sunshine fool you. It's 2º and the wind is whipping through at way below zero. Here are some pictures from yesterday when the storm finally rolled in at mid day.
We didn't actually get too much snow in our area south of Rochester. Sometimes the storms coming off the Great Lakes dump most of their snow on Buffalo and run out by the time they reach us. But we did get the cold temperatures and high winds, making it very dangerous to drive or be outdoors.
It was a good thing we filled up all the birdie feeders. These birdies were very happy to get a good meal. Sid Starling wasn't picky, and ate a variety of suet, seeds, and bread bits.
The little nuthatches enjoyed the suet the most.
I checked out the Sparrows Incorporated Winter Lodge in the Sticks. There were dozens of sparrows in there. They didn't even fly away when I got near. In fact, a few of them came out and sat on the sticks and fence to greet me! They were very grateful for the food and lodging. Mr. Mortimer Seedcruncher III, CEO of Sparrows Inc. requested that we put out some more bits of bread in the window feeder.
OK Mr. Seedcruncher. I'm heading inside now to tell ghostwriter.
Our Uncle John, who lives in Tonawanda, took some nice pictures of the Niagara River. He's a great photographer! He and ghostwriter remember when they were kids growing up. They would go for a big walk by Niagara Falls to see the ice, and they didn't care how cold it was!
Don't worry about me being out in the cold. I only stay out for a few minutes.
And then I go in and take a nap. I hope everybody in the path of that storm is safe and warm now.
