This is what I found while checking the local weather information, on this website sponsored by the Suhr-Lichty Insurance Agency. It did warm up to 14 at 3:30pm but was back down to 8 at 6:25pm. The only time we were out of the house since Friday noon was to fill the bird feeder and to plug in our Christmas lights. It is ironic that this is the day of the Seward-Branched Oak Lake, Bird count. We didn't spend a lot of time in the kitchen looking out at our feeder, but did see a Cardinal and 6 Dark-eyed Juncos. Our fountains have been frozen since Friday afternoon. I don't know if birds can use our light covering of snow for water or what they do.
We have been working on Christmas correspondence and enjoying seasonal music during our confinement. We made some decisions on "end of year contributions" and began putting together some things for our Income Tax. It's easier to do these sort of things when you are not able to get out to do anything else. We didn't even consider going to Church this morning but did watch the service from St. Paul Methodist in Lincoln. Their Minister is very good but the choir and organ are outstanding.
