Picture of my backyard taken at 7:30 AM, Thursday, November 25th. The sun is peeking between the branches of my Bradford Pear tree that still has red leaves on it.
Behind the fence is a forest preserve. It's mating season for deer and last Sunday there was a large buck with two does running behind the fence. We also have coyotes in the preserve and we often hear them howl late at night.
The Chicago area received a couple of inches of snow and sleet Wednesday and Wednesday evening. The day began with rain and as the temperature got colder, it turned to snow. Thanksgiving morning is sunny, but cold.
