Snow


This picture is just a small glimpse of what I see every night on my way home. Nope, its not cattle grazing, those are white tail deer. Each night there are about 60 of them in the field right along the road. In order to get them to show up in the picture, I had to zoom way in and then you don't get to see the masses of them. I had several run out in front of me on the road yesterday. Please, please, feel free to come hunt up here. I know the farmers and


I remember the days when it was a huge deal if snow fell on the valley floor where I grew up. It might happen every 5 years and when it did there was hardly a covering of snow on the ground. That cracks me up now as we get snow on a regular basis.


As of right now, we are getting yet another snow storm. Expecting 2-3 inches throughout today and then some more over night. Will it ever end? Supposedly it's going to warm up over the weekend and maybe even hit 40. We'll be thinking we're having a heat wave for sure after having sub zero temps for a while.

After totaling the Mini-van after hitting a deer (with the family in the vehicle) - I strongly encourage all hunters to get as many as they can.

OH - I forgot to comment on the deer. LOL.

I have that same exact scene every time I run errands and take 'the back road' out of our town to the next suburb (avoiding the interstate).

I'm ALWAYS on the look out so one doesn't hit me! LOL.
