Do you see what I see?

The boys aren't used to having snow on the ground day ... after day ... after stinkin' day ... any more than I am. Normally in my neck of nowhere, the snow falls, the sun comes out, the temperature climbs, the snow melts. This winter, we seem to keep missing that temperature climbing part. And we're all going a little crazy because of it.

Everything looks different when snow covers the ground. The boys start seeing things.


Do you think that's a shadow or a mountain lion?


I'm not sticking around to find out.


Run for your lives!

Deets is messin' with us again, mom.

    Wow, it looks cold there! The mountains sure do look pretty in the background with snow on them.

  6. Great pictures and captions. Deets is a very scary dude with the personality of a mountain lion, if not the size.

  10. I love that last picture of Alan and his shadow. For what it's worth, it really is pretty out there with all that snow.

  13. Be careful now, keep showing all this burro cuteness and there won't be enough of them to go around!

  14. You know, I'd noticed that perpetual overcast, dark and drippy has been having the same effect over here!! "What's that moving in the trees?!" "Is it rain or giant raccoons coming to attack?" "Let's snort really loudly to alert the neighborhood!"

    What gorgeous views you wake up to every morning...and I'm guessing you don't suffer from SAD (that seasonal thing) during your winters!! :-)

  16. Crazy cat. :)

    Of course it's got to be fun to start a stampede. Ah, sweet revenge.

    Hope you get a bit of a break soon.

  17. I wondered if they sound different when they are running in snow -- the muffled thunder of little hoofs? Your view is SO gorgeous!!! Love seeing any of your critters.

  18. But at least you can see that pesky cat better in the snow. He doesn't change color like the rabbits and fox...he is still and will always be that (darn) black cat.

  19. That reminds of some of my trail rides on my horse. You can see them looking for the spook.Anything will work. If she can't find it she will make up one.Love your stories and pictures

  20. Beautiful pictures. That last one is my absolute favorite - I would just love to kiss those little donkey lips! This has truly been miserable winter for most of us. I will be SO happy for spring this year.
