I was fixing myself a coffee this morning, when to my very great surprise, a big wasp is crawling on the counter beside me. Its 10 degrees outside and a foot of snow, but seems this young lady decided to come out of hibernation. Past couple of days, while certainly not "warm" have been less cold, and mostly sunny. Its still surprising to see a wasp this early -- no way it can survive outdoors.
(At least I think it was a wasp. No yellow on it. I'm not 100% on my entomology)
