As I was going out to the barn to do some chores when I noticed something odd . . .

Yep.  The old bat box is still there (and as you might know it has never been used by the bats - they prefer the hay mow in the barn).

If you look carefully, you will notice that there is now a large hole in the front.  Something has decided to remodel this box.  Not sure what it is, but I will keep an eye out in the spring to see what may have moved in...

Cold - Hot - Cold

It is now 2 degF.  Just 3 days ago it was over 40 degF.  The snow from the previous week had melted revealing the sign of little mice and voles.

The thaw had the creek running fast and angry.  It guess it did not want to get wakened from its winter slumber.

As the cold came back yesterday, we got an inch of snow; covering signs of the varmints.  The creek is icing up quite quickly.

If you don't like the weather, just wait 5 minutes!
