No, not normally. Most wild animals can make it through temporary extremes of weather. They have good fur to insulate them. They usually put on some fat reserves prior to winter. They always store up food and have it available and accessible. They go into a semi-hibernation state if it gets cold enough and blizzards don't usually last that long. I have lived in Minnesota for the last 20 years and weather many blizzards here and 6 winters I lived in North Dakota, and we never seem to run out of squirrels. They empty my bird feeders all the time.
The dumb ones maybe..Animals are a lot more in tune with nature than humans..they are smart enough to get out of the bad weather...Humans..well, a lot of them just..ain't that smart..*LOL*
Squirrels are also capable of hibernation in the colder climes... I know that the Red Pine squirrels that lived where I grew up hibernated all winter and came back out in the spring.
Ha! A squirrelcicle :D.
Nope , They just go to sleep and wake up in spring , Very simple .
No, if a they die due to a blizzard it because of suffocation or starvation.
I would think as sixfootoneamazongirl that they would need to find some kind of shelter.
