Although I have always been fond of your blankets of deep, white snow with frozen, crusty surfaces on which I could use my snowshoes and burn calories galore, I am beginning to get fed up with the cold, blustery winds you have brought me instead this year. The trails are icy, making walking and hiking treacherous.
Even the critters that visit us appear chilly and anxious for Spring. Just look closely at these pix. Both the turkeys and the young doe appear to be "looking" for Spring.
