Do the deer eat cedar up there? They wont hardly touch them here, but they may be a different type of cedar.

yes the deer yard up after the first snow fall ..my friend has cedar trees near his summer cottage and all the lower branches are chewed off..we lost a lot of deers last winter,in some places 62% of the deer starved to death [ a very sad situation] if it keeps on snowing we shall lose more this year ..no problem with moose or caribou ..got lots of both ...

They (deer) were hit hard here in Ontario as well last year. Wayyyyyyy too much snow. Not as much snow this year but colder. It was -17'F last night and calling for -22'F tonight. Crunchy snow and crunchy buggers cold but not square tire cold yet.

When the temperatures are bitter cold the tires get so frozen hard that where they sit on the road, they seem to have a flat spot. So when you go down the highway, they thump until they finally warm up. We always joke about the square tires here too.

Our deer eat cedar. I normally drop three Red Cedars for them and come spring, there are no boughs to trim off as the deer have them eaten off. They yarded early this year because of the snow and extreme cold. I sure hope the timber wolves don't find the yards too soon.

How many of you cold birds have jumped when it gets so cold that some of the nails shift in the house and POPor you are out near the power lines and they start to hum from the cold?

Another cool thing to do is when its bitter cold boil some water on a stove and then take a coffee cup full of it outside and throw that in the air and watch what happens... you can make a cloud. The water just disappears before it hits the ground.

My Dad used to joke it was so cold you have to knock the dogs off the fire hydrants...
