Snow/Rain ~ Birds ~ Deer ~ Slippery Driving ~ NFL Scores/Schedule ~ Dog Snitches ~ Chicken Noodle Soup

Good 32º drizzling rain morning. Yes, rain! We are on a flood alert up here in So. Oregon and No. Cal. There is still a ton of snow out there! And it's VERY dark and gloomy also!

Grants pass didn't get the continued snow like we did here, as they got a lot of rain yesterday. Cleared off the roads!

Night before last we got a huge amount of snow. Stayed 26º all night, then in the daytime it heated up to 39º. Sigh..... stayed dark and gloomy too.
Here is what we looked like.... the birds were frantic hanging out by the bird feeder~

And later the deer ventured out and two does and a fawn found munchies under the tree...

And this is why I don't drive in this kind of weather....

Yesterday's NFL scores:
   Good for the Texans and sad for the Lions!!!

Games today:

Ok, this is too funny ... dog lovers this is for us... dog snitches on sibling...

3-4 boneless skinless chicken thighs cut up and browned in olive oil. 2 32oz cartons chicken (low sodium, organic) stock, 6 cups water, garlic, several shallots cut up. peeled baby carrots, 2 pkgs button mushrooms cut in half, green beans cut to bite size, 1 cup white wine, 6 celery stalks cut up, Tuscan seasoning, salt and pepper to taste. Cook on low 2 hours, add in package of cooked egg noodles, cook 1 more hour.
   Always so good and comforting.

Not going out again today. Too much snow. Even the trash can will have to wait!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday.
