We have gotten about a foot of heavy wet snow. There are branches down all over town since it hadn't gotten cold enough before the snow to drop the leaves and the snow really built up on the remaining vegetation. The power was out twice yesterday because of branches falling on the powerlines.
The Sharp-tailed Grouse were feeding in the Russian Olives along the road and Crean and I headed out to see what else we could find. We had a good morning wandering around in the snow until he followed Addie into the water and filled his boots. Then it was time to go home.
It warmed up later in the afternoon and most of the snow will probably be gone in a few days. This snow should really set us up well for the coming spring. The ground has not froze yet and all of this moisture should soak right in. Now we need more snow for the rest of the winter.
