I haven't seen my little friend for a while now. We had a blizzard right before Christmas with the wind blowing the snow very hard. Since that time I've not seen the squirrels. I miss their antics, I would fill the bird feeder almost daily just so I could watch them. I hope they are sleeping somewhere nice and warm. I find it amazing that any creature can survive the winter cold. One thing I really miss about the farm/woods back home is being able to walk even in winter and see all of the creatures scurrying around. The squirrels were a link to the woods, so I hope to see them in spring.
