I am not sure if they named this last blizzard or not. The wind was raw.
We ran an errand to the neighbors and went to the end of the driveway to take a photo.
This was at 1 PM it was pretty dark and dreary. School was two hours late and I didn’t hear if they got out early. If I had been in charge the weather conditions would have made me nervous for the school busses.
There are two roads out there, we didn’t see or couldn’t see any traffic.
Back in our yard the snow stick measures about 12 1/2 inches of snow on the ground so far this winter…that would be the compacted number. That is more snow than last year at this time.
I stayed outside for a short time watching the birds.
This Downy Woodpecker didn’t mind me sneaking up on him.
The Wild Turkeys were here the other day, one of them pecked at our kitchen window. We have corn for them and will set up a feeding area for them in the woods where they can poop and eat to their hearts content.
We saw a huge Buck complete with a set of impressive antlers near my brothers driveway. I have never found a shed antler in Minnesota…that would be a real treat. Usually they shed their antlers in Mid Winter December – March.
