(Report by Jim)
We were wondering if we’d have a white Christmas after that rain yesterday, but we made up for that a bit today with an inch of snow up in Leland.
PSA: On a hike through Clay Cliffs Natural Area today, I saw more an more graffiti carved on the birch trees. Please, do not deface these beautiful trees. The damage (especially when all the bark is removed) can be devastating to the trees, allowing disease and bugs inside. When the bugs get in, the woodpeckers start drilling. I recorded the heart carving last year around this time and there is no sign of improvement. I would think everyone taking that trail is doing it for the natural beauty, and your initials do not add to it.
