Spring arrived in Oklahoma with a flock of robins and a snowstorm. The robins took shelter under the carport, snuggling under the leaves next to the house and would fly out into the storm whenever anyone walked out the front door. You could see them take shelter under the cars parked in the drive, puffed up to about twice their normal size, looking for all the world like a bunch of grumpy old men in brown suits and red waistcoats. The expression on their faces looked so much like Walter Matthau in the movie, Grumpy Old Men, that I had to laugh every time I saw them.
Fortunately, the snowstorm only lasted about 30 hours. The last gasping breath of winter expired on Sunday. Everything started melting, and now I'm surrounded by a sodden marsh that once was yard. But, the robins were out in force, bouncing across the ground, scratching for food and looking much happier.
I guess even the birds get fooled by the weather sometimes!
