The weather continues to astound with it's variability. We had a hard freeze with all the streams inches thick with ice. Then we had a full day of hard rain and suddenly everything let loose.

Walking through the woods was tough. Ice lay just under the surface and it was easy to slip over the wet leaves. Our land isn't exactly flat either so getting up and down hills was an adventure. Cooper had to engage four-paw drive just to maintain progress. We even had trouble despite the crampons on our boots. Great fun to slip and slide and toss ice balls. Plus it's great when you get home to hot coffee, fresh cinnamon bread toast, and a roaring wood stove.
