Snow drop and deer

Postby Rutnut » Tue Feb 12, 2013 3:47 pm

Been a crazy weekend. We got hit with 24"-40" inches of snow over night. I never lost power, so it could be worse. Took me 4 hours to clear my driveway, then I got a call from my neighbor...so I went and did her driveway. But our roads were never plowed for 2 days, so most people weren't going anywhere anyway.

When the storm began, my yard filled with wild life. My two favorite deer Bonnie and Clyde showed up. Clyde is just a button, so this is all new for him...what could he be thinking?? Havent seen a deer for 4 days now (normaly every day). It is just amazing to me that animals can survive this. I know they are just bedded somewhere...Their creator certainly gave them some serious survival traits. It is just simply awsome to me.

Hang in there Rutnut. Looks like your life will be complicated for a while. Hope all turns out well for you and your family.

My condolences, that's 24-40 inches more than I could handle! Down here, one flake is too much snow!!!!! Instead, we've had 6.25" of rain since Wed. of last week, and there's more coming today.

aye, it's all good. I actually like it. This is a bit much, but I love the winter and all it brings. I dont do well with heat!!
Slowly back to normal. Calling for 3-4 inches tonight, which makes me laugh...why even tell us about it.

This morning when i looked outside, my deer buddies were back. Glad to see. Nothing like sipping coffee and watching nature at it's best.

does that deer have an injury to that back right leg? I thought it was just the tarsal at first, then i saw it's on the outside of the lower leg...

I believe that is a type of gland. I used to know what it is, but it has been so long since knowing it I forgot it.
