It took until, naturally, Groundhog Day for us to get our first real snow of the season… and it was a doozy. It fell a bit short of the forecasts, thankfully, since 8-12 inches was being bandied about a lot… but it was still a pretty good hit of the white stuff (More on that tomorrow).
Apparently, it was too much snow for the squirrels, as even a full day after the last flakes fell, there were hardly any critter tracks at all in my front or back yards… and none while I was watching. At least until late yesterday afternoon, just as the sun was setting, I was able to get a few pictures of this guy. That snow has to be really cold to be burying your head in, dude!
OK, I guess that peanut was totally worth this week’s Saturday Squirrel risking brain freeze by diving deep into the frozen tundra of Evil Squirrel’s Nest….
Have a great weekend everyone!
