We now have around 8" of snow here in and around Mena Arkansas. We don't get as much snow as a lot of you get but we do get it some. So it is a very white world out there, very much preferred over the ice storms.

Our feeders are getting hammered, the birds eating all that they can. And it appears that our cat has been eating a couple birds as well. Cardinal feathers everywhere LOL.

We also have a deer feeder out back and the wife's game camera has caught up to five bucks at a time there. Two have lost their antlers but the others haven't yet. They are midnight feeders so far.

Yesterday while the snow first started, it was a heavy wet snow. So I tried my hand at homemade pizza in a large cast iron skillet. It came out great so I went ahead and made some very good banana nut bread with a lot of pecans in it. Today will be a big pot of chili as I do some archery inventory.

Been really using my electric vest lately, really like it a lot. The wife is from New Hampshire and is loving the snow. I like it too but only for a couple of days and then I am ready for it to be gone. I may get to go hunt in one of my blinds this evening, it would be great to blood trail in the snow. Jerry

The hawks around here work on the birds ten times more than the cats. I topped off the feeders yesterday and the snow started today around 9:30 this AM. Looks like it may add up pretty good but then rain to follow it and run it down into the creeks.

We have about 8 to 9 or maybe 10" here in Northwest Arkansas, and a few deeper drifts. And that has caused a fairly wide power outage. I lost electricity last night. So, this morning, I fired up my Miller Bobcat welder/generator and lit everything back up. I am glad I had some extra gas cans, full.

Mainly, I just need to keep the deep freezes and refrigerator cold. Everything else is just a luxury. At least I fed the cattle heavy before it hit, so I can coast a couple of days, on hauling more hay out to them.

I don't like snow but I unwinterized my snow blower and started it up in Dec and so far, no snow. Oh wait a minute, it's snow flurries as we speak.

We have a dusting here where live but already 6 inches west at my cabin.

More snow and colder than has been the case of the last few years. A few inches on the ground and drifts to about a foot. Arrows that blow through my bale target leave tracks, that's one good thing. ha

Transient deer herd cruises through here at night, and bumps seed out of the big hopper feeder. I yell at them during the day. They bolt off aways, turn and look at me like 'what an ahole.' haha

We have more snow than usual here on the Maine shore so far this winter, maybe 10" total.

But living in New England my entire life, through many blizzards, this amount of snow is no big deal :^).

After I posted earlier, I decided to go to town and mail a few bill payments off, that time of the month. Anyway, I started to take my 2018 F150 pickup but it wouldn't go in 4WD, because that stupid electronic switch or servo wouldn't kick in, I recon. Those newer pickups are known for that.

I gave up on it, and finally cleared the snow off of my old GMC Jimmy 4X4, which is all linkage shift into 4WD. I live on top of a mountain and the road is very steep and winding. There were two cars stuck in the road but I was able to get around them. The road was pretty treacherous, and I just did manage to make it back up the mountain. I was all over the road, but with plenty of counter steering and an educated foot on the gas, I made it.

All those options on newer vehicles are controlled by computer, and sometimes you have to treat them just like your home computer. Shutting the thing off and restarting it has fixed mine more than once.

I sat for over 4 hours in a blind this evening. I was giving my new heated vest a workout. had it on low until 4:30 and then put it on medium. I was layered with another heavy vest over it but not zipped up. I was quite comfortable the whole time except I should of had better gloves and warmer boots. Just my exposed fingers and my toes got cold.

I only saw more birds but it was pretty cool sitting out with the heavy snow. It was a little bit of a challenge with my fore arm crutches in the deep snow but it was worth it. I also enjoyed a hot chocolate as I sat there. My bow was the red oak riser I made with the DAS Bamboo longbow limbs. It is 45# on my scales. Those DAS limbs are really nice limbs. Just finished a steaming hot bowl of chili with cheese and the works. Was a good day!

I’d rather see a bird kill a cat any day
