Cold snap

We had a bit of a cold snap this last week--cold by local standards, getting into the teens at night and not getting above freezing during the day.  The cold makes for some lovely sights. 

One of the more charming sights is seen after a night that is humid and just below freezing--the frozen snores of sleeping voles, snug in their burrows:
The best part is being there as the sun comes up.  When they melt, you can hear this barely-perceptible "zzzzzzz....zzzzzzzz"
