Icy branchThe snow was followed by freezing rain on Monday, which made the kids' toboggan-run very fast and the snow very crispy. The school buses didn't run, so the children had a fun day whizzing down the hill again. Much to their disappointment, the buses were running again today so it was back to normal, except that we all thought it was Monday and will probably be out of synch for the rest of the week.

bird footprintsI took the dog for a walk up to the field this afternoon. There were lots of big bird footprints by the spring, probably wild turkeys or grouse. Plenty of signs of the coyotes too, which look like they've been resting or sleeping behind the big barn. I like the extra layer of information that you get when there's snow on the ground.
