We spent the day clearing the ice off of the sidewalk and parts of the driveway. Daisy helped. Climate change is a real issue. I'm keeping the feeders full.
I captured the ice pellets, let them melt inside, and found out we had nearly 14mm of rain.
After my work, I took a walk. Can you see the red squirrel, just at the base of the tree? They are happy to fill their faces at the feeders.
The poor deer are skating on the frozen crust of snow. I took a last look for deer sheds, and found some blood spatter droplets. No antlers, though.
In the last photo of this set, you can see how the deer struggled to scrape out a bed in the frozen snow.
