We sit in our relatively warm houses and complain about the cold (or at least I do). We sometimes forget the wild creatures or even our own domestic livestock that have it much worse. Below is the sight I found outside my door when I took the pooch out a 3:30 AM. Sometime after midnight, one or more deer had been scaping through the snow, hoping to find a few stray acorns yet remaining under the white oak in the side yard. It sort of puts things in perspective; doesn't it?
