Today is a perfect winter day. Yes it is cold but the air is crystal clear and the sky without a cloud is a perfect blue. Yes there is snow. Not a lot mind you but enough to complete the scene. We have not had any big storms this winter rather a succession of small ones leaving a few inches at a time. I am guessing that by the end of the week snowshoes will begin to make sense.
Today all eyes are focused on the weather forecast. To our South there's already significant snowfall and we are expecting the same in Maine. The real questions are how much? When will it start? When will it end? And most importantly will there be school tomorrow? These are the times when I'm not jealous of the weather forecasters, no matter what they're going to be wrong about some aspect or even the entire forecast.
With snow on the ground under the last full moon we could clearly see what was going on out back. To our surprise we had deer feeding on acorns on the lawn for the fist time in the over 20 years we have lived here. Our part of the world is not like other places where deer are more common than chipmunks they are rather an animal that we know is around by their tracks across the road or a brief siting on the side of the road.
