Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
I've heard "colder than a whore's heart" but never "a step-mother's kiss". Perhaps a "mother-in-law's kiss"?

8 with drizzle here but I saw crows massing at dawn. I have been waiting and watching for the migration... got my camcorder and camera at the ready. I wish I had been more on the ball a few years back. When I noticed it, they were directly over me and it was awesome but I stood and watched for at least five minutes before I even thought of a vid. By the time I was set up it was too far away to be impressive.

I watched a shorebird migration at dusk in PEI about thirty years ago. Remarkable how millions of birds wait their turn and join in, from north to south along the shore. As do the crows in similar fashion. Fascinating.
