The snow is melting and the water is running. The skunks are out doing what skunks do to escape extinction. We smelled one a couple miles away. There are none in the culverts because the culverts are running full of water. They will go back to sleep before emerging in spring with babies. I have taken the peanut butter jar in for now …no sense flirting with danger. ( Have I said I hate skunks? I do. I am not sure what purpose they serve other than to be stinky and irritate me. We don’t have a compost pile that has food scraps in it…only leaves.)
Three inches of snow at the snowstick in the morning March 7. Photo taken from the inside of the house.
Later in the day the stick was surrounded by 3 1/2 inches of water. Is it premature to call Sam the winner? She guessed March 10.
With the exception of one day we are supposed to have highs in the 50’s until mid March. Unseasonably warm for March.
Here is some mud for ya x 12 paws…
When you get tired of playing ball you eat snow with friends at the snow bar and the snow helps clean your paws.
