The above photo was taken on day 12 of the long freeze. I had been wondering and worrying about the deer. They must have huddled for weeks with hardly anything to eat, all but trapped. I counted eight of them in this herd.
That's a very solid two feet of snow they are standing on top of. I only saw one deer put a foot through, out in the woods.
Notice the little line through the snow? That's our neighbor's driveway.
To illustrate just how deep that snow is, here is the deer stepping down onto the driveway.
