Winter to Winter

If you've been complaining about winter, maybe you don't realize how lucky you are. Mankind has been able to find ways to make places with even the most extreme temperatures not only habitable, but comfortable. Technology has conquered the cold, but wildlife doesn't have that luxury.

Fortunately, wildlife is designed to cope, though some animals fail to survive. That's the way it is in the arena where "the dead of winter" isn't just a reference to the barrenness of the season. The phrase also tells us what sometimes happens to animals during that time.

Yet, most of them cope surprisingly well. Check out my January 25 column in the Jamestown Gazette, "Winter to Winter," and see what deer are doing while they wait for spring.
