Thursday we were experiencing 68 degree weather with strong southerly winds, as we fretted about a fire that was burning on our land. Yesterday, however, the temperature dropped to single digits and we received about 6 inches of snow. Just as I was beginning to think old man winter had passed us by! It makes watching the Olympics seem a lot more relevant when there is snow on the ground and a fire in the fireplace.
We have been seeing lots of deer this winter, but the new snow makes them easy to spot. They know exactly when the feeders are due to dispense corn.
