Surprise - Finally
We have enjoyed being able to walk around anywhere we wanted to go with only a couple inches of snow on the ground but it did not last and now we will deal with winter for the next few months. We enjoyed the pleasant temperatures in mid December when usually we have much colder temp's and 4-6' of snow.
All the new snow and cold has not deterred the deer however, we observed a small herd out to the side of the house while we were shoveling this morning. They don't mind the cold as they have very good coats this time of year and their hair is hollow so it provides excellent insulation. This snow will probably force them down to lower elevations soon.
