If we think the winter has been tough on us imagine how it is for the animals who live outside.
There are two feet of snow on the ground and it is 15 degrees. How do the deer survive? As we sat in our dining room we got the sensation that we were being watched. It turned out that there is a baby deer who decided to take shelter from the weather by making a home for herself under the bushes right next to the house.
She is not at all afraid of us. Notice how thick her fur has become to protect her this year. She is content to look directly in at us as if we are creatures in a zoo for her to examine.
Next week the weather is supposed to finally change and be almost fifty degrees. We know of one little hungry animal who will be very happy to see grass again.
