Bona Dea Update
Bona Dea was again cold today, Friday. This was the first time I have seen the creek and ponds completely frozen over. However the spillway was running believe it or not. Must be enough water running underneath the ice to overflow. Threw a large rock on the ice in the creek and it just bounced. There were numerous flocks of Robins and the dreadful Starlings. They are also all over town too. Also saw the lonely Great Blue Heron flying. Only a few people brave enough to jog in the cold. Except 3 runners from the local running club, but for a change, they had no shorts or t-shirts. They looked like Eskimos. It was still a little windy. Supposed to warm up later next week. Maybe will take some pics then.
