Caught in the Act
Photo taken on the morning of January 6, 2005, Thursday: The gang of garbage messers, finally caught in the act!
Today is already Thursday, and the garbage collectors are yet to show up. Perhaps, they are on an extended holiday vacation. As a result, the gang of crows and gulls has returned! And they are all over the neighborhood, dragging plastic garbage bags onto the streets, feasting merrily amidst the whiteness of the snow.
Yes, the snow began to fall early this morning. Thus, officially the snow fell today, January 6. Winter proper has indeed begun. Time to ready my Winter gear—thicker coats, bonnets, mittens, and scarves. Chilly days and nights are here. But gloominess? Nah, I don't think so.
