Sad, sad animals

Over the past week we had a freak of weather. It went from being in the 20's to fifty degrees for a couple of days. It rained instead of snowing. A whole lot of snow melted away. Under the snow was green grass!

Then, today, reality came back. It got cold. It snowed.

As a human, I appreciated the little break from winter's grasp. All of the animals, however, seemed to think it was the "real" spring. Tonight while making my rounds, I noticed that all of them were acting generally bummed out.

To me, a warm snap is a welcome break...but to the critters it is just a cruel joke.

Oh well, they will adapt. After all, it is only a two more months until mud season.
