Under the snow

I am so tired of seeing nothing but white when I look out the window. And today, just to add a special twist, Mother Nature is topping it off with some freezing rain. Glad I don't have anywhere to go.

While it looks like everything is frozen and still, secret activities occur below the surface of what we see. I would not have noticed or identified this hole in the snow as belonging to a mouse if I had not seen the critter venture out for a second before scurrying back to safety.

Come spring, evidence of rodent tunnels will snake across the dormant lawn until the grass greens up and grows.
