Well it looks like the normal Iowa winter is here for a while now. It has been horribly cold since the last snow storm and it's only -1 degrees right now not counting the wind chill factor. We have another snow storm on it's way. We're supposed to get another 4-6 inches of snow tomorrow, uggggggh! Our tootsies are going to freeze when we go outside to potty.
The bambi are sleeping on our land more, they like to curl up in our bushy areas to get out of the wind. There were at least 2 dozen deer out there this morning. We got pictures of a few of them. It's hard to get a good photo with all of those darn bush branches in the way.
The open area on our largest pond is almost closed up now with these below zero temperatures. The ice isn't very thick yet, so the deer walked around the opening, but didn't get close enough for a drink. Think they figured out they might fall through. They've been there done that before!
Our girlie cat Hootie is smart, she lays in a sun spot with the fireplace behind her to keep warm!
I think Sparky & I should find a nice sunny spot to go lay in and take a nappy!
Wirey Hugs, Purrz & Licks,
Katie, Sparky, Ruby, Sylvester, Scuby, Hootie & Zeek
