Neighborhood moose have been stepping out in fine fettle throughout the winter or lack thereof. No significant snow cover has made for easy pickings for the browsers and with no impediments to travel there's been more than the usual amount of sightings. While moose have been eating well, predators that depend on snow pack to slow down their prey have had to adapt. Snowmachiner activity has been hampered and the rollercoaster of openings and closings is presently in a trough, with many areas closed to the use of machines. With some wet snowfall Tuesday and slightly cooler temperatures and snow predicted for next week, there may be some hope yet for a white April.
