Oh, you’ve got to be kidding? I thought it wasn’t supposed to snow that much around here, huh? What the heck??!!??

We are now in our third big snow storm of the season. We’ve had little bits of snow here and there, a big storm one week before Christmas dumped 20″ on us. Last week’s big storm dumped 20″ to 30″ on our heads (depending on where you were)… and now, with that stuff not even starting to melt, another big storm comes through and it’s expected to put another 18″ on the ground.

As of yesterday – the “official” snowfall total for the season was around 62″. Hello? 5′ 2″ of snow? And by the time this storm is done, that total should be 80″. Yikes!

Oh, the weather outside is frightful!

There's a car under there somewhere!

That critter gets around...

The weekend included a record snow fall – 19″ was the official measurement a few miles up the road. Our area was a little deeper in spots.

Late at night, I caught site of a buck (only 3×3, but a rather hefty critter) standing at the top of the hill. I couldn’t decide if he’d made a few circuits of the yard, or if there had been others with him. A few minutes later, I got my answer, he was joined by at least one doe, possibly more in the trees.

The field behind us is filled with tracks – it looks like the deer had a convention in the snow…
