Crystal Clear Night
There is something about the mid-winter moon, just past full and riding very high in a crystal clear sky. No raccoons are expected on such a cold night. Though they don't hibernate, they do sleep the sub-zero weather away. They store up fat during the summer and fall to tide them through the winter. As the temperature starts to rise in March the raccoon will begin to roam again.
