Snow! - UPDATE January 3, 2015

Red Squirrel in snowRed Squirrel in snowSnow began to block Holly’s Den Cam by midnight. A Lily Fan captured the hourly progression as the Den Cam became completely blocked by noon https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_84tg2lkiig&feature=youtu.be&hd=1.

White-out in ElyWhite-out in ElyAt the WRI at that time, red squirrels were digging down through the snow for sunflower seeds. At 1:06 PM, a snow squall accompanied by wind blowing snow off the big white pines created the densest white-out I’ve ever seen.

This latest storm brought us 7 inches for a total of 9.5 inches of snow on the ground.

The view from Holly's camThe view from Holly's camNow, at 3:45 PM, I’m off to the Bear Center to see if Holly will let me unblock her Den Cam and wipe the smudge off the lens.

Tonight is date-night to see Unbroken that Donna wants to see after hearing the audio book.

Thank you for all you do.

(Addendum) Lynn called to say the gate was locked. He will not be able to clean Holly's lens until Monday.
