Even though it's deepest winter, it is encouraging that the days are becoming noticably longer. Several weeks ago, I was feeding Buck and Rupert by illumination from my car's headlights at 4:30 pm. Now there is still plenty of light at 4:30.
We've had frequent snowfalls over the last couple of weeks, and I've been honing my snowplowing skills on a regular basis. We have more snow piled this year than any other, and it's still not even mid January.
