It's cold, but there's still plenty to do
This has been a tough winter. In fact, it has been one of the coldest winters on record. Now don't get me wrong, I love winter and I always have. I've always believed that people who don't like winter don't have anything to do when the snow flies and temperatures drop below freezing. But I've never had that problem.
Animals' behavior a sign of wild winter
When I grew up, winter was much different. If we got a foot of snow, the schools and businesses never closed, because a storm like that was merely called flurries. Boy, have things ever changed.
Opossum is unique in many ways
Many years ago, I saw my first possum. Yes, I know: It's opossum, not possum. But no one ever pronounces the 'O.'
It can be too cold sometimes
With freezing temperatures and the Winter Olympics just a week or so away, I was reminded of a winter camping adventure many years ago.
It's tough to say what you really did see
Every once in a while it's fun just to open that proverbial can of worms and see what comes out. The other day I was shopping in Hannaford's and someone told me he had seen a mountain lion last fall I wasn't going to burst his bubble, so I listened intently to his story.

Trees have it tough during harsh winters
My wife and I went to Maine the week before Christmas to visit some relatives. While we were there, you folks experienced a sudden change in the weather. Temperatures rose into the 60s and the snow quietly vanished without fanfare.

I'm sure many of you still remember the old Mt. Otsego Ski Area.
