Knew it was coming. Just waiting to be seen. So much snow, can't get out into the timber and look around like I like to do, so can't keep a mental image of what's happening as I usually do. We are at 60 inches now. All time record 70 inches. Most of this over two different layers of ice. Deer tracks actually in my barn. This with two dogs who run them off the arborvitaes and spruce and pines in the house yard every night. Dog brought up the first deer carcass I have seen this morning. Small yearling. Starved to death from what my observations show without getting out my postmortem knife. Have watched them from a distance the last two months. Getting thinner and eating things they don't normally eat. Actually saw them at a round bale of cornstalks two nights ago. They just do not do that. That don't count the turkeys, the rabbits and the squirrels that are croaking. Spring can't come too soon for these critters. Maybe I can find Al Gore and see if he wants to bring in a load of corn for these guys or start a Govt. program with your tax dollars to get them through the rest of the winter. Global warming my rear end.
