The sweet calls of tufted-titmice warmed my heart on this windy day around
1200. Watched them flutter around the lookout and back into the trees.
I think I'm getting chilblains in my fingers from the cold the last couple
days. Not taking the mittens off tomorrow!

Mostly sunny, with a high near 48. South wind 5 to 10 mph, with gusts as
