Hunting This Week

The girls and I have spent the week hunting.  Its been pretty cold for the most part.  I got a small doe earlier in the week but haven't seen another deer since.  I also got three squirrels but our neighbors cat, mama-sita, stole one I left unattended for about a minute and proceeded to eat her supper! 

Last night we had dinner at Buddy's house next door and played Boggle with the kids.

Today it is sleeting with freezing rain and you can't walk in the woods without the forest hearing you.  I've been hunting by the house where I'm out of the sleet and near the coffee pot.

Blizzard brings 20" snow to Fairfax

The "Blizzard of 09" dropped 20 inches on us yesterday. I haven't been to our house in Madison but my neighbor Buddy reports 30 to 36 inches up on the mountain. Waiting to hear if the road to our house has been plowed yet.  More pictures soon.
