The snow from early in the week has melted, and the last two nights have been above freezing. The resultant mud is more like what we see in April than what I'd expect for mid November. Most of the mud is generated by Buck near the fence where I feed him, but the dogs have also been tracking it in for the last two days. Sixteen dirty paws make a lot of mess!
The sky has cleared this afternoon, so I'm pretty confident all the muck will be frozen and non-messy again by tomorrow.
Here's a picture of Rupert, taken Tuesday.
