Started to snow around 10 am, and the blue jays and squirrels have been gathering spilled corn from yesterday's harvest. I saw 3 fresh deer tracks and lots of new bear tracks. You might not see the animals, but snow reveals whose out there. Probably watching you. :D

And one deer around that branch/snag I tied up for a buck scrape. No scrape yet, just walked under it.  There must be something to this because deer are sparse here and more than coincidence to walk in under it I'm thinking. It's not on a trail, but off to the side a few feet. ;)

I dont half to walk far or look hard for signs of deer here. Compound the fact they already like it here as well as Im thinning out a good habitat for them. Should be set for steaks for the rest of my life.

After dinner yesterday it was 38 and rain from then on and into the late evening, hard rain. Not much for snow now.

Brushed the flu and stove this morning, one of them monthly chores. Beats mowing grass. ;D

Hoping to help out the deer for winter habitat, right now nothing to eat within reach in winter. I got the thermal cover from the fir, but needs to open up some for young hardwoods to take hold. I don't know how the rabbits do so well here, I don't see girdling and really not much to nibble. Don't need much maybe. Rabbit tracks everywhere......and squirrel. There are lynx here once in awhile.

Nice in the sun. :D

Well we had nearly a 1/2" of rain yesterday in separate sessions, but it was mild temps. Around late evening the wind started to pick up, enough that I turned on the floodlights and looked outside to confirm the source of the noise. Sometime after midnight, it changed to a freight train sound that woke me up. Mostly out of the north or NNW, Lots of trees down and power outages. School is canceled today.
 I just heard the neighboring department get dispatched to a brush fire endangering a structure. With theses 20 MPH winds we still have, that won't be a fun job. Lots of blocked roads around.
 Temp right now is at 38, so that's not bad. But that wind may change my plans for the day.

Well, we had rain until daybreak. Then the wind swung and we had 4 hrs of snow. Now just wind and clearing. Snow plow just went with sand. This is a complete change in service over the last 15 years, sand and just a skiff of snow. Can't wait until we get 15" of snow in one dump and see the new plan of attack. :D

Oh, and expecting temps to drop below 10F at night time for a few days. That'll bring the 'soft' to 'hard' in no time. :D

I have 16 this morning. Might get to above freezing today. The wind was busy here yesterday. But it was kinda a warm wind.  ???  Was not like the wind we had a few weeks ago, that was a cold, cold wind.

Got'r a little hot in here with a stove full of aspen. ;D

2 or 3 inches of snow and sleet here in A-Town, 8 inches of snow up at the place.  We're probably done with our pole and post piles for the winter.
Far as I can tell, it's 6 of one, half a dozen of the other...

Maybe an inch of snow before it was light here, than a light rain all day. A mess, not warm enough to melt the snow. More ice to add to what is all ready there.

Raining hot water, at 48. That little bit of snow is going fast. But that warm temps is not suppose to last long. Seem odd at this time of night to be this warm. They said the temp would rise and it did. 
But when I get up at 5am it will be just about freezing again.
