last snow in Jamestown

I was greeted yesterday morning by a layer of snow that had fallen overnight. We'll soon be moving out of reach of lake effect snow. (Maybe I'm insane, but I will miss it!) I took this photo from our back porch.

Three or four years ago, our dog Duncan was sticking his nose into the drain before him. I wondered what he was doing and heard, as he obviously did, chirping sounds within. At first, I thought a bird had fallen into it. Instead, it was a chipmunk. It came running out, and off went Duncan after it!
Now, if I ask him, "Where's the chipmunk?" he runs to the drain, barking and pawing at it.
