We were surprised with a couple of inches of snow in North Carolina. I have a small bird bath with two statues of birds sitting on the rim as if having a drink of water. The birds look like they are frozen in time!

It seems as though, when Mother Nature sticks a knife in, she twists it. She dumps a heavy layer of snow atop a little squirrel's nest. Poor squirrel. No central heat nor fireplace, no long johns, nor muffler. And as fit as he must be to survive, not an ounce of fat for insulation against the bitter elements.
My rock garden pond was built with river rocks from my late sister's home in Arkansas. During the winter and the temperature drops below freezing, the pond freezes over, but the pumps that push water through the ceramic frog still flow water and the water will freeze in mid stream.
