The variable cold weather so far this year has stratified some of the surface ice on the local creeks and streams. This is the stream from the beaver bog and it is still flowing underneath the ice you see here. Most of the snow cover is very crusty and icy, also as a result of some dramatic temperature differences among our storms this season.
The overflight of canada geese from the last few days of 2018 in southern Connecticut deserves another look…..
From about a month ago over on the beaver bog, we noted some recent tree trimming along the banks of the creek that supplies most of the water for the bog.
