Winter, to some, is a period of hibernation. But winter forests are full of life as birds hunt for seeds, and squirrels, mink and fox scurry through the powdery snow.
To those of you who have wondered whether I am hibernating, I am not. I have some family obligations in snow country. Spending a month here has reacquainted me with both the joys and travails of life in the cold.
