nothing new on the WARIS front. still waiting for the dust to settle post election. the new Governor is going for big cuts in budget so not sure what that will mean for my walrus. will check in with my friend who is working on the web page...hopefully we can have a cooler, better functioning web page soon.
Anchorage has yet to go below zero in 2014. very odd. the last time this happened in recorded history was back in 1952 i think it said. i guess we average 20-30 days that dip below zero...a few years after the one with no days below zero they had a record high of 75 days below zero so we may pay for this warm weather. to beat the record of days not going below zero we'd have to not go below zero until next Nov sometime i think.
the moose of Kincaid park are at risk...apparently there is talk of a hunt to thin them out. not that there really are tons of them. the new bike trails are all over the place and there are now more encounters...surprise, surprise so some want it thinned. talk of killing all the females and just leaving the males and the calves to fend for themselves. the guy mentioned in the article for pushing for it, wants it to be open to just over 70% disabled people....he himself is in a wheelchair. they would use guns and would probably have to be accompanied by an abled person as moose that have been shot rarely drop dead right there and i suspect doing the cleaning of a large moose may be difficult for someone who is 70% disabled.
guess i should lay down for a bit, perhaps watch a movie. between my walk and PT i am a wee bit sleepy tonight. yesterday i felt like i was being very lazy, as i skipped the gym and the bike, but i got several tasky things done at home. dishes, laundry, dog poop pick up. even got the tree down and on the front deck...not easy. i may have to skip my annual tradition of dragging the tree to the recycling area and instead pay the boy scouts to pick up the tree.
thankful for A. turkey noodle soup. B. being able to walk outside again, even if it's slow and steady C. Rio....even though she has driven me a bit nuts these past few weeks. so needy!! night.
