Wind: NW 10-15 WC -26F
Sky: Partly cloudy
Our high temp for the day was at midnight when it was 3. When I got up, it was -7. Now it is -11. With wind. Fortunately the NW wind is the best kind, as I have good tree protection for most of my route. I was dressed in full Winter gear–warmest base layers, parka, wind pants. I stayed warm except for the back of my hands. A good pair of warm leather mittens would solve that problem. With each lap, the frost built up on my eyelashes and eyebrows.
Dog didn’t last a full lap. He relieved himself and stood next to the door. But what can I expect, he is a wimpy Texas rescue dog after all.
A perfect mouse track, complete with tail:
Don’t think for a minute that today’s anniversary is not on my mind. It hurts my soul as much today as it did a year ago. It is still very fresh and the wound is very deep. To be honest, it troubles me far more than 9-11, because it came from within. Violent criminals, lying bastards, bullies and idiots, all of them. To believe they have a right to tear away individual freedom and try to impose their will on all, to do as they say. They claim they want individual rights. Their double speak is so ridiculous and what is more ridiculous is they don’t even recognize they are trying to impose what they claim they are fighting against!!! Keep strong, speak out, don’t give in or give up.
