   JoAnn Vanderheite of West River Road took these pictures Monday, December 22nd after the big Sunday blizzard. "The deer was probably just starved to venture into my yard at noon," JoAnn wrote. "He sniffs, looks all around and finally licks out the bird feeder. Guess I have to trudge out and fill it again!"
