Winter Nature Study

We have been blessed here to have fresh snow and warm enough weather (only -8) to go outside and enjoy it - at least for a few minutes!

We have discovered SNOW, icicles, blocks of ice with dirt and bits of leaves frozen inside, and tracked the squirrel (?) tracks left in the snow.

I can only assume these are squirrel tracks as we have a TON of squirrels here.  Or a bunny?  I know we have skunks and raccoons but do they run around in winter or do they hibernate?  I have no idea.  Obviously, somebody is visiting our yard!

This is new to me!

Adrianna also discovered that "drawing" in snow is pretty cool too.
