Remember last year I saw a white mule deer?

Not white white like an albino, whiteish with gray or brown shading like unto a regular deer but with very light color where the good camouflage is supposed to be. Did a very little research and learned that that’s a thing with mulies: Not common but not all that rare, and must truly suck in an area where they’re heavily hunted.

Well, it’s almost two years later but the Gulch isn’t heavily hunted and she’s alive and well. I thought I caught a glimpse of her on the game camera once before but couldn’t be sure in the IR. This time she sauntered right up to the camera in daylight.

And BTW, just to punish me for hubris the weather socked in hard and is now snowing and blowing and bids fair to keep right on doing it till the end of the ice age. So goodbye cruel world but also nyah nyah because I saw that coming and got my outside morning chores done early, the woodbox overfloweth, the cabin is toasty and I may actually dig out my hot chocolate or something equally suburban just to further tempt Nemesis.

    I like the way you turn the weather into a pesky, villainous central character in your never-ending story!

    Enjoy your toasty warm, you have earned it! I think you should step your game up from hot chocolate to a hot toddy as I noticed you acquired one of the key ingredients. Will there be a pot of stew/chili and fresh bread to go with it this evening?

To the stake with the heretic!
