hahaha, no there's no white stuff here. I think we had a snow last year, or year before last... I don't recall for sure.

It was nearly 70 today and about the same yesterday. We did have about a week of temps low enough that it put a half inch of ice on water that wasn't moving. That was about a week or two ago.

Foxtail - "Even if that beav was caught here or in NS, it would be completely worthless. Southern fur and as small as a muskrat, less than worthless."

Actually that little beaver was a Wisconsin beaver. We generally have two types here. The ones they imported from Wisconsin and those they got from Alabama. You can tell the WI beavers because they still make feed piles outside their lodges/dens, and they still have that nice WI fur. This place has a nice feed pile. Its on the downstream side of the company road. You have to look closely to see it, and its easy to mistake for the dam in the pic. The dam where I caught the little bugger is about 50 yards downsream from the company road.

HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHH??? Revert back to the picture of the Nutria I posted. Notice I am wearing snake boots in Nov. I have seen water moccassins during warm spells in Dec. Some guys don't bother with boots, but I wear them all the time. We have 3 kinds of rattlesnake, plus copperheads and water moccasins. When it's above 55 deg. I wear mine to church!
