No real excitement but I figured I should post here occasionally. Went for a snowshoe trek, a little under 1/2 mile around the fields with DW this morning. Saw a TON of snow fleas/springtails. Tiny black spots that jump if you are looking at the right time. No idea why the descriptions say they are called snow fleas since a) they aren't insects and b) they don't look a THING like a dog/cat flea even though the description says they look like fleas. Springtail makes more sense.

Snow flea article at the Farmer's Almanac.

Got a good 18" of snow last Friday, more on that later but I wanted to post these 2 pictures. I called @CntryBoy777 on his birthday and see what I got in return!

Now if y'all had called him, you might have gotten a gift as well ;)

OK, for real, they came with a nice thank you note for helping them move last year. Mrs @CntryBoy777 embroidered the pillowcases. I am grateful for their thoughtfulness and friendship.
