Mav, they have a special house I built for them a number of years ago. It's filled with lots and lots of old sleeping bags and blankets and has a 75-watt light bulb inside for warmth. The opening is "sealed" with clear plastic strips so they can move in and out without too much of their warmth escaping and they can see outside. They pile in there and seem quite happy.

I have this wonderful four seasons room which serves as my office and is surrounded with windows on three sides. Today I can look out and see snow up to the window sills, the white tipped evergreens blowing, our peace flag fluttering for survival and the birds still trying to get food out of the feeders. Winter in Wisconsin.

What a wonderful image. I can almost picture it in my mind. I am looking out my window beside my computer watching the snow come down. While I dislike it because it pretty well imprisons me in the house, some how watching it out the window is so peaceful.

-5 deg., sunny and windy. I just got done blowing about 3-4" of fresh snow, and my mouth froze shut while I was out there...
