Weekend Weather, Bobcat & Other Musings

Cat’in Around
Talk of the town is the bobcat that has been sighted frequently from Piney Ridge down to Sioux and over on Flicker and Canyon.

Wildlife in the area is not unusual, but due to the depth of the snow, sightings are more frequent as animals are using plowed and cleared pathways to travel.

Plus, the normal camouflage that works so well in the normal forest setting is of no use against the white snow.

In fact, their plush pelts seem to highlight their presence.

Most wildlife will avoid humans unless provoked or fed.

So don’t harass the animal and be sure to keep your pets close and on leash. Use caution if you let smaller animals out during dawn, dusk, and evening hours.

Weekend Weather
Once again everyone is speculating about the winter weather. It is good for the mountain, although I did think we didn’t need it all at once, it has been a long time since we’ve had a real winter.

Last I heard we can expect some weather later tomorrow into the weekend. You can always click on the weather tab above to see what is cooking but the National Weather Service said to expect up to two feet max and I’ll go with that.

Do everyone a favor, quit listening to those commentators on the alleged “news” shows and stick to the meteorologists. You’ll still find variations but they are a lot less sensational.
