Linda Dale of West Bacon Road has found a bright spot in the brutal cold weather: a frequent visitor she calls “Allie.”

She took this photo of Allie – a spotted deer – on Wednesday. This Piebald deer was eating seeds from the bottom of a bird feeder.

“She’s such a delight!! Just look at that face!!” Dale said in an email.

Jason Smith was driving to work today as superintendent of Lyndonville Central School and took this picture of a sundog on West Countyhouse Road in Albion.

The sundogs resemble rainbows. They appear sometimes in the winter when low-lying sun creates ice halos.

John Wolski, Lyndonville’s business administrator, was driving in Pembroke last evening when his son Michael, a fifth-grader, took this picture of a sundog.
