Del,

The weather station says your area will be getting colder   -60C with wind chill
or something like that

I wanted to let you know that I spent my lunchtime watching a big red-tailed hawk
perched on a 4' fence post eating a meadow mouse aka vole.  He only has another
8000 to go!   It's great watching this huge bird swoop down on the field amongst
the llamas.  The llamas are quite unconcerned, yet they spent last night sounding
alarm calls probably because three deer have moved into the nearby forest.   Hard
to understand how a llama brain works.
