Clouds have settled onto our neck of the woods, dropping rain on us for most of the day, for the past several days. Because it's rain rather than snow, it feels as if we've entered springtime. However, just to keep us on our toes, it's supposed to change to snow in the next few days.
In particular, I've been seeing the same mountain lion passing trail cameras near our house for more than a month. I'm beginning to think that she has kittens stashed somewhere nearby because mountain lions don't usually spend so much time in one area except when they have small kittens. I hope that they're in a well-protected den so they can stay warm and cozy!
