But first, we've a fawn with a broken front right leg. Crumbly Acres, indeed. With 28 cm of snow falling, over two days – Dec. 16/17, it is difficult walking. I think this is Clover's fawn.
Out in Vancouver, the kids took Cluny to a cross country ski race! They are in great shape there. They are a busy bunch and keen skiers. It was -12 C., and B.C. has had a ton of snow. Cluny texted me on Kids Messenger, to let me know where they were: "I'm at the sandman hotel in Squamish, and its been snowing here! " They have great skiing near them, of course. They belong to a club, with great opportunities for families.
The snow storm has really taken out our great white pine trees. Here they were, February, 2016, for example. We lost a lot of branches that year.
They took the brunt of the heavy burden of snow. The ends of the branches are frozen into the snow, and I have to cut them up before I can move them.
This is what the bucks did in the snow, ate pumpkins!
We've a new storm on the way Thursday. We'll see what happens.
