No need to sit in the cold Bernie! You're welcome to visit the house and museum anytime! 
Today is Squirrel Appreciation Day!  We have no shortage of squirrels at Rokeby Museum, and their long residency at the site is seen in numerous sketches and drawings by the Robinson family, including one by Rachael Robinson Elmer.

Two reindeer stand behind him hitched to a sleigh. The caption says "' S-s-s-h! I wonder if those youngsters are fast asleep?'" In pen (in another person's handwriting) it says "Put on wood + return as soon as possible"
