hahahahahah. Mod cut: TOS violationI pictured someone cowering in fear in their Bedford estate, afraid to go outside where the evil skunks/deer/racoons/mosquitoes are swarming.

There are two seasons: Winter and summer. Winter is November 15 to March 15 and the temperatures range from 5 to 48. Then on March 15 or thereabouts it turns 68 and ranges from there to the mid-90s until November 15.

Not mine. The only tracks I didn't see in the snow this winter were bear.

Really, what are you people talking about? We're outside almost the entire summer. Most summers bugs aren't a problem at all, and when they are it is usually only for a few hours for a few weeks. As for wild beasts, we have deer, racoons, rabbits, squirrels, a hedhog that lives in our field, skunks on occasion, and some wild turkeys that wonder by once a summer. On full moons we hear coyote in the distance. In other words, paradise. All summer long (except for serious heat spells and thunder storms) we're outside from dawn to bedtime. That is what it is all about.

Agree completely. No mosquitoes. EVER. And we don't get deer because the entire property is fenced, but we get everything else (chipmunks, rabbits, skunks, etc.). Why would anyone find that objectionable? It IS the country, after all!
