Snow: Special at the juice bar

Christmas special at the juice bar was a sno cone slushy.

If freezing weather were to last, the kind people who maintain bird feeders and bird baths would need to take measures to keep the water and food from freezing.

Here's what Bird Lady Christine Southwick says:

I have two hummingbird feeders that I fill year round— I make my own nectar— 1/4 cup of sugar (sugar cane only— those little devils won’t drink nectar made with beet sugar) to 1 cup of water— no dye required. When temperatures start freezing, I wrap non-LED Christmas lights, red of course, around the feeder near my kitchen window. I hang the back feeder next to a 75w light under the eaves.
Offer clean water all year long, and keep it from freezing with a bird bath heater that comes on automatically at 35 degrees and below. Our local Wild Birds Unlimited in Lake Forest Park Town Center is one of the places that carries them.
