That's a cold one! Nothing like out west last week, but at least there is a wee bit of snow to protect us and insulate the critters. In the meantime, the lead up.
Sunday morning we had the same visitor. (I think!) I thought I'd set up the tripod and get better photos.
Poor Frosty. He is falling apart. He needs a new hat. He is doing well, all things considered. He's been repainted many times. Compare him to Frosty and Josephine in 2010. I truthfully don't know how old he is or where my parents got him.
Before the snow fell, the fawn with the sore leg was back. There was a fawn and a buck, too.

The bucks are dominant, and seem to charge the fawns, who understand the hierarchy, and run off playfully.

I took out the garbage about 7:30 Monday morning. I went back out after breakfast to use the snowblower. It was brisk. I am sore today. Those are muscles I haven't used in awhile. JB is still sore from his fall, so we are a perfect pair of old farts!

Just after I finished, I heard a familiar sound.

...stay warm and well.
I saw a flock of geese flying over yesterday. I hope they were heading somewhere warm.
Between you two and that fawn, might need to rename the place Crumbly Acres! Stay warm... YAM xx
Wonderful clicks of the season
Love Frosty in all his years...and the buck at the feeder, and you pushing a snowblower along. Ouch indeed!
Are the geese heading to warmer pastures? Love that snow blower video, and the pumpkins, they must be so tasty.
Smiling at YAM's comment. Stay safe, stay well and stay warm.
The deer are quite comfortable around your place.
I like you in the snowblower video.
Action becomes you.
You meander all over the place with this post. If there's still open water you will have geese. Some rivers here have spots of open water all year and yes, geese.
Ok, I didn't know geese would fly that long without getting organized into a V formation. Maybe its easier to figure it out in Kansas. Linda
I like your Frosty snowman :)
The tripod seemed to work for you. IT OFTEN DOESN’T, ESPECIALLY WHEN THE SUBECT IS MOVING AROUND. (Sorry caplock). I don’t use it in a lot of photos that aren’t longer shutter speeds. Certainly not for hockey action.
It's such a different world! We have gray rain, which is not nearly as pretty as your snow but which is a lot less work.
