Last Tuesday’s snow forecast originally called for nearly two feet of snow. We didn’t receive that much snow, but there were about 10 inches in my corner of the world and that was plenty enough for me. It was a dense, wet snow packed down by sleet. JT and I stayed inside until the storm was over. Outside, one of the squirrels that lives in my yard hunkered down in the dogwood tree.
The backyard squirrels love this tree. On sunny days, they chase one another up and down its trunk. But last Tuesday was not a day for playing games. Squirrels and humans tucked in for the storm, which is likely to be our last storm of the Winter. Soon enough, the squirrels will scamper around the green lawn. I’m looking forward to it!
