This is the scene mid-week last week. With the cold snowy weather the deer are starving and to fill their bellies they are eating all the leaves off the English laurel bushes.
Saturday we had more snow - 9 inches or more.
It came from the south so piled up on the screens on the south side.
Son-in-law William, drove here from his apartment to spend the weekend with us while Sarah was out of town. It took him 4 hours for what is normally a 50 minute trip. 1 hour of that was walking from where he had to park his car off the road. When William hadn't shown up when we expected him, Dan walked out to meet him. He ended up walking 3 miles to meet up with William and then walking back in the storm. It was a messy storm that caught everyone by surprise because the forecast was wrong as to the start time and the amount we were to get.
Sunday morning they both were out to clear the driveway.

Well, I don't know if this fox is a he or she but we've become a regular stopover. Paid off for the fox yesterday because it dug up bread I tossed out in the snow the day before and found the bird that met its demise against our window pane. I'd swept it off the deck into the snow. Here is the photo sequence and if you're squeamish skip the last ones.
