Hang on!

We started this morning w/a light dusting of snow.  Then the wind came up and the sun came out.

When we came home from coffee the wind was blowing hard from the southeast.

One of the bluebirds was perched in the honey locust tree by the driveway.

She had her feathers fluffed, was facing into the wind and hanging on w/all her strength.

Spring in the Pacific Northwest is NOT for light weights,  you gotta be tough.
