I love to find animal tracks!
We missed the really bad weather yesterday, but got almost 3 inches of rain. Sun is shining this morning.
Have a great day!

Fun! You find some amazing tracks. I always find tracks fascinating--imagining the happenings and stories of the animals who made them. :)

Lea: They were originally predicting a foot of snow for our area Tues-Wed, but it shifted more to the north than they expected, so we only got 3 inches over both days, and part of that was a winter mix. Also weird that we only measured three inches over two days as we had thundersnow for an hour Tuesday, and you usually get 3x as much snow when it thunders. A lot of what our area got melted yesterday before temps started to fall, which means sidewalks are now coated with ice.

Beth: What's more amazing about the tracks I find is that I live in the city, though it is in an area bordering the Arboretum and nature preserves. I found some nice, clear squirrel tracks yesterday. Didn't see a single turkey or hawk, but the squirrels were out in full force. :D

Looks like you're betting the kind of weather we're having. Snow, snow, and more snow. Only the tracks around here are cat instead of turkey.

Alice: We've been getting some snow, but not a lot. We're actually more than 12 inches below normal on snow fall this year. We were supposed to get a foot Tues-Wed this week, but it shifted north so we only ended up with three inches, half of which melted right away when it transitioned to rain.

Very cool - I'd love to see some wild turkeys around here! They're such an improbable bird.

I'd worry for your water tables if they weren't already so high.
