Wow, gnu, lucky you! We have -24 C windchill and the lawn is so far below snow that nobody can find it.
The snow pack has been a huge problem for the displaced Snowy Owls who moved down here from the Arctic, hoping to find something to eat. People have been finding them dead or too weak to fly and dying. I'm guessing that the numbers that are being turned into the the gov't wildlife office are just a fraction of how many dead owls are out there where people won't find them.
It's a very sad situation to see these beautiful birds dying, they've bred too successfully and overpopulated themselves out of food.
