Winter Blizzard 2010 Baltimore – Deer are Roving

My neighbor, Phoebe Hayes, took these shots and posted them last night. All of this snow is really really tough on the animals out there trying to survive on their own.

Even the deer came out of the woods to try to find something to scrounge in the middle of the night. I’m not sure if they’re going to all make it through this amount of snow and the limits on their food supply. On the flip side, if this is what it takes to naturally cull our deer herds since they’re so overpopulated and lacking any natural predators  now… so be it. I know that sounds harsh… but I’d rather that natural (however natural these snowstorms are now… that’s another topic… hmmm… climate chaos) means help us balance ecosystem health and return our forests to less overgrazed states.

This last picture is a neighbor walking her dogs (thanks, Phoebe — again). This is kinda an illusion since the snow is actually much deeper but they’re walking on a path that’s at least a foot of compressed snow above pavement..

ah, the winter of 2010 is one that we’ll not forget too soon…
