Shortly after my last blog, October decided to go from 85 degrees to -10 degrees with a foot of snow!
Since then it has been fluctuating between cold and warm, with the average high slowly going down. Mornings have been a little on the frosty side, but by the afternoon it’s been in the 40s or 50s.
With leaves and seeds falling from the trees, birds and squirrels are storing food for the coming Winter.
The deer are hard into the rut right now.
With the rut comes a lot of road killed deer, as they are distracted and the bucks have only one thing on their minds. That however feeds the scavengers.
The days are getting shorter now. We’re about a month away from the shortest day of the year. I usually don’t get to see the sunrise, because I’m working in the office at that time in the morning, but I got to see it today.
It turned out to be a beautiful sunny day! A great time for a walk in the pasture with Rocket and Sylvia.
Sunsets and moonrises are upon us before we know it.
Have a Happy Turkey Day everyone!
