Nature Watch, Jan. 24, 2024

Glorious snow between warm-ups, the sun at the sweet spot, providing both brilliance and color to our winter landscape. And more, the snow is marvously dynamic now. Too cold for snow snakes, but the luscious white icing effect is holding, stretching, while the mass of snow slumps and sags somewhat, leaving cones of snow around every tree, every sapling. And if that’s not enough, skiing and tracking could not be better. A bumper year for white-footed and deer mice and happy hunting for all who depend on them.
