    Got a 40% chance of snow coming on Monday, not sure how much were supposed to get though and temps dropping down in the mid 30's.

    Well this doesn't bode well for people down south if snows start to figure out they can sit right in a power plant yard....Not talking a lake a quarter mile away but right at the plant its self. Won't take them long to figure out no one will shoot them and this water never freezes.

    A nice example of it ain't always the corn.:dv not sure what the deal is but there have been allot of flocks out feeding in pastures these past few weeks far more than you would normally see even on a warm year. Second pic is hard to see but shows this isn't a little flock to say the least.

    It's at lest 50,000 could be as high as a hundred it's just extremely difficult to tell since the closest birds are over a mile off shore and about a miles and a half from me with the far birds being over two miles. Here's a shot through the spotting scope to give a better view and a non edited pic to give a real idea of how far they really are away.
