Our Sunday sunrise and while this was going on two goshawks got another pheasant that had hid inside a tree frame. I watched the whole scenario work itself out. When the pheasant flew for it the one got him. They did not share at all the one goshawk ate the pheasant until the eagles showed up.

While he was eating the pheasant these two came along and finished off what little was there. I have video but it takes too long to load up on my blog.
Bob and I went out snowshoeing yesterday in about 8 degrees. The dogs went along in their coats w/o booties on their feet as I gave up using them last year, they just lose them off.
He is how our water arrives, by truck with chains on. He was a day late due to blizzards. These heavy trucks really have a time of it getting down icy driveways to deliver our water. What does it cost? Water is .049 a gallon and I usually get 1030 gallons every other week and that is for two people being conservative so you can imagine what a large family uses. I have a front load low water washer. I have a Jacuzzi tub which I use 2 times a year at most due to the fact that it takes so much water, a dishwasher, and a 40 gallon water heater that also runs my floor heat. Propane is the most expensive thing we pay for here especially when this really cold weather is going on. If you turn your heat to 68 you will be paying at least a thousand dollars a month. We have ours on 65 and run the wood stove 24 hours a day. We have a large home now along with a good sized garage that we have to heat as well. My room here is 73 degrees right now due to the solar gain from the windows, the second reason we have those big windows. The guest cottage does not need to be heated in the winter due to the foundation it has.
