January 19, 2013 It's snowing!
We got enough snow, yesterday, we finally could ski again. A friend came over and we hit the trails and left a pretty fine set of tracks. We have enough snow again, those tracks won't be too evident.
Just as an example, usually the squirrels are running all over the yard on top of the snow. One of the first ones I saw was really struggling to run across because it couldn't stay on top. Soon, in a matter of a few minutes, we saw two different squirrels go across the yard, under the snow. About every 3-8 feet, it would pop its head out, I suppose to see it was still going the right direction, and under and off it went again. Funny!
The snow also got the wolves out circulating, looking for a meal. While skiing yesterday, we saw the fresh tracks of a couple over east. This morning, they were circulating around the yard area again. My husband saw it. The few deer that were circulating around, were gone, that fast.
The birds also seem pretty active this morning. All the feeders are full of bluejays, redpolls, pine grosbeaks, chickadees, nuthatches, and squirrels! Tis the season.
Besides skiing, looks like another good day to hit the quilt. Off and at it.......
