There was a record snowfall on Tuesday. Trudging out to the trees yesterday the fluffy snow was up to my knees and it was hard work just to go a few hundred meters to take this picture. The rabbit below was having a hard time getting through the snow as well. Here he is at the entrance to his bolt hole.
I heard a chickadee announce that "tea's ready" yesterday, a sure sign that spring is coming. Winter started quite late this year (there were dandelions blooming on Christmas Day). I wonder how much more of it we have to see.
