It has been an unusually cold winter in the Midwestern United States this year. Today, is no exception. Morning broke to single digit temperatures (3 degrees Fahrenheit here). The dogs and I bundled up and hurried out to face the crisp cold. A beautiful blue sky over white ground greeted us, and I wished for warmer weather. While waiting for Spigot (our rescued mixed breed) to find just the right spot to relieve herself, I noticed turkey tracks in the snow. A visitor from earlier in the morning. How amazing the ability of the wild animals that live around our home to survive when the temperature drops this low. Meanwhile, fragile, top-of-the-food-chain me, must run back to the safety and warmth of the house after only a few minutes outside.
