in the evening and binge watching some old PBS series I had watched years ago. Today I must go out and brave the slippery crusty snow to feed my feathered friends as this is a bird counting day!

The Rest of the Rabbit Story
I woke early on Saturday to the predicted snow storm. I opened the front door and saw this very quiet and very stealthy event happening before my sleep fogged eyes.
Even after the morning sun was behind the clouds and beginning to coldly light the day, I had a very blue picture of my front yard.
By early afternoon the snow had thinned for just a bit and I walked out to the annual flower garden and saw that someone (most probably our gray fox) had surgically removed the rabbit that had been caught in the predator fence. There was NOTHING left except the fur caught on the wire and this small bunny tail in the second photo which I brought inside. I guess bunny tail soup is too exotic for a hungry fox. It will be my souvenir of this winter storm.
Within 30 minutes I had to hurry back to the house (forgetting to take the snow shovel out of the shed) and this was the scene that kept most of us at home for the next twenty-four hours.
I tucked away inside my house all Sunday finishing chores and drinking decaffeinated coffee and snuggling up to a cozy fire...
