After watching tv, my cat, Coal, and I walked into the kitchen and as I passed the back door I saw a large brownish lump. Thinking it was very strange I went up to the door to find three raccoons walking all over my backyard on the untouched snow. They began to play with the snow and it seemed as if they were trying to make small snowballs. It was quite hilarious. There are also three garden gnomes and it looked as though they were trying to steal one.
