Looks like the snow is here to stay

There has been snow on the ground in Sula for the last two weeks.  We've had a few sunny days with temps in the 40s, but it appears the snow has reached critical mass.  There is just too much snow for the sun to melt on these shorter days from its low perch in the southern sky.

This picture is looking a few degrees east of due south at a little before noon.  You can see how low the sun is, trying to shine through the snow clouds.

The snow is deeper out in the woods, where the sunlight rarely reaches the ground.  Not deep enough for snowshoes yet, but off to a good start.

This is a game trail near the back of the property.  The fence is no object to the deer.  "Badges? We don't need no stinking badges!"
