    Our maples are just starting to bud, no leaves seen yet on anything. Last year we had peach flowers in early February. Then they froze.

    Chilly. My two brave pups decided to take on a vicious prowler last night: a beaver. They won. That’s the shocker. Time to go bathe two muddy pups, and doctor the cuts they have, move the beaver body so I can take the hide, and then I’ll have to clean up myself. The smaller dog has a gash on his face, the bigger one has one on his shoulder. Not near as bad as I’d expect against a beaver! Those things are mean!

    Holy crap. Much bigger than I expected. I only saw blood on one of its back paws. It was in the arroyo where flood water goes, so lucky for the dogs, wasn’t enough to drown them. It still has some of their fur in its teeth! That thing is heavy!

    Just cleaned up after doctoring dogs. One now has purple face from vet spray, the others wound was much deeper than it looked, bled bad when I washed it, so he got superglued, and then wrapped like a gift. He’ll be anemic for a week or so, lost a lot of blood. But he will heal. He’s whining about the wrap, but I don’t need the house looking like a murder scene. Already cleaned the bathroom, he splashed blood up the walls. Pics are of them all doctored up. They will be unhappy inside for a while. Part husky, they like the cold. But the tan one will stay in till I know he’s good. And they’ll be on lines till I get them a fenced in area. Nope, not loosing my guard dogs to some rodent!

    I feel like breaking out into song! Yes it is true we have been given another gift of snow during the night!

    We got a rare nice day! And I’ve spent most of it working. Up at 5, gone by 6, just now headed home. Gosh darn it, I have flower bulbs to get dig up! Maybe tomorrow. I strained a muscle in my shoulder yesterday, felt it when I woke up. Using it hurts, but feels better after a bit, so just strain, nothing too serious.

    The predicted temps for next few days. If they don’t change, cause Mother Nature is a bit crazy right now, we may see blooms soon!

    It's pretty great out today. We could get up to 60°F. We're currently at 52°F.
    Some wet weather comes through tomorrow and we're not really sure if we're getting rain, snow, both, or nothing. Originally we were expecting 5"-8" of snow. Now maybe only 1"-2" and mostly rain. Maybe we'll see less. Less would be great.

    It was warm this morning, then breeze picked up, it clouded over, off and on rain showers. On a good note, my flower bulbs have buds started! If it stays as warm as predicted, I may see blooms in a day or two! But I don’t figure winter is quite done with us yet.
