Cold Temperatures

It's March 1st, the first day of spring according to the meteorological calendar, and once upon a time (prior to 45 BCE), it was the first day of the year.

But call it what you want, if nocturnal animals like flying squirrels are wandering around in the middle of the day trying to find something to eat ... there are a lot of other hungry beasties out there.

We've got more snow so far this month than we usually get in all of February.  But the days are getting longer; Larry says we have ten hours of daylight now and by the end of the month, we'll have eleven.

And between the deep snow (for hiding) and more light (for romance), things are hopping out in the natural world.
