Today, the big thaw has begun, and the beauty is still dazzling. Cabin fever is driving the Snowmageddon (how many storms get a Presidental moniker?!) shoppers to the streets. We welcome them with open arms and HUGE discounts to reward their efforts.
*Can anyone explain the magical, slightly spooky phenomenon of frentic robin activity in the snow? We saw it first a few years ago: literally hundreds of robins, flying back and forth, trading places incessantly for about 15 minutes, then moving on. Despite my best research (of course, I've never gone farther than google...), I can't seem to find any information about why this happens. Bird behavioral experts, please?
