Earlier this month we experienced an ice storm. I spent the day wandering around the city taking pictures, dodging tree branches and talking to people who were accessing damages. Our yard was completely flooded afterwards and quickly became a nice little stopover for a good sized group of water fowl. Two mallard ducks have stayed behind. They must have a nest somewhere close by. The water has dried up but they make an appearance every evening after dinner waddling up and down the sidewalk going from lawn to lawn looking for food.
