It has been a very cold and wet and snowy February in NC.
The above photo is from Feb 13th - the third weekend in a row that snow fell in the Carolinas. It was not a lot of snow (left) and definitely one of the more mild storms of this winter, but there is still some left on the last day of the month (right) - and a chance of more this week.
The squirrel also thought it was excessively cold and moved into the bluebird house this winter. He likes to lie flat on the top, looking down over the edge at the ground.
On the other hand, there are signs of spring.
