This would be a beautiful scene to wake up to every day. Our days are kind of warm, but the frost in the mornings tells us that the seasons are changing, which brings me to my next subject.
The first time I heard it, I was inside. Did not know what had fallen. It startled me. So many homes in Montana have metal roofs. They cost more than shingles, but they last longer. Another great bonus is that the snow does not build up and slides right off in the winter.
So, I went outside to find out what all the noise was about. Our local pine squirrels are busy gathering nuts and dropping pine cones out of the tops of trees. When they hit the metal roofs, the noise is very loud. They are also pretty bold by dropping the pinecones on your head when you are outside.
They are so cute, and they bother Kippy when she is outside. They tease and then run up the trees. Kippy gets very frustrated.
