Yes the JTI storm reporter did her job and went out to check around how bad the storm was. I will let you know this much if we get another storm before the water has a chance to go down the Root River is going to go over and also some of the side roads out in the country. I just could not believe how much rain did come down. Then on the news they say we only got 2 1/2 inches of rain not true it was a lot more than that. I can tell by the river.
On the west side of interstate 94 got it worse then we did. Drew and I went out that way to do some birding yesterday when he got off of work. You would not believe it out there we seen small branches on the road and you could tell in spots that the water did go over the roads. I do have a picture of a farm out there too.
Here are some pictures I did take yesterday-
This is by the Root River on 5 Mile Rd in Caledonia Wi.
This is by the Root River on 5 Mile Rd in Caledonia Wi.
This is by the Great Blue Heron nests on Nicholson Rd in Caledonia Wi.
This is on the West side of Interstate 94 on 2 Mile Rd. this is the farm field.
I hope that everyone enjoys the pictures and then you know how much rain we did get.
Like someone says in the Journal Times comments, neither Beth nor her group will see one penny of any profits. This is truly a case of a neighborhood rehabbed by the residents themselves. That's what made it attractive to investors.
Tucson just finished a new trail that fills in a gap along the Pantano Wash near Broadway Boulevard. The bridge over the wash has a huge bat colony underneath it. As part of this project, they installed a new sculpture along the trail: I present Bicycle Bat.
I actually like having them around. I know they eat other bugs and are fond of flies,
so as long as they behave, they have a safe home here.
Yes, I've even named a few. This one, is Jake. He hung out in our upstairs bathroom for some time. He's moved on, and I've lost tabs on him :( Hopefully he's keeping his belly full of unwanted creepy crawlies!
Leggy Larry, however, wasn't a welcomed guest. He meandered in front of me, just to the left of my monitor, Tuesday morning while I was waking up. I did not scream. I DID, however, gasp just a little.
I moved my light to shine on him and see if he'd scamper back wherever he came from. He, instead, chose to 'sun' himself for a bit, before darting into my feather duster that I keep behind my monitor, feathers up. I quickly took my duster out the back door and shook him into the great outdoors, before resuming my morning awakening. Long live Larry, somewhere else.
Hello, my guys and dolls!How are you?We’re still on the
temperature rollercoaster.It’s been
weeks.40’s today, 60’s tomorrow.I never know what to wear outside
anymore.Cold and dry in the morning,
hot and humid by lunchtime, snow in the evening, frost overnight.How can you prepare for that?Just take your entire wardrobe with you, and
then you’ll be “covered.”
We had a quiet Easter at home with me, Junior, and Señor
Zanza.Some ham and mashed potatoes,
various veggies and some hot buns.The ham
didn’t last long with Junior around.We
didn’t color any eggs this year.That’s
the first time since Junior’s birth.
What a terrible loss that UW sustained at the hands of Duke
University.Just like our Packer season:a wonderful record topped by a loss.Well, the fact of the matter is that placing
second, or third, is nothing to be ashamed of.Quite the contrary.Instead of
mourning the loss, we should celebrate that UW made it as far as it did.There’s nothing “wrong” with second
place.It still places UW very near the
top of the basketball heap.
Did your candidates win in the election?Mr. Mayor Dickert held off a challenge to his
seat, but the President of Mount Pleasant was unseated.My candidate, Honesty Wrapped in Common
Sense, didn’t appear anywhere on my ballot.I can’t wait to see what Racine
looks like at the end of Mr. Mayor’s term, which will mark 10 years in office
for him and should show that Racine
is a “Top Ten city.”I’m not even sure
of what that means.Politicians are the
masters of double-talk.Some people talk
of a clique of politicians locally that results in thousands of tax dollars for
certain clique members.Who knows?
Here’s a cute little video for the dog lovers amongst us:
Sometimes I swear that the tension in my head sounds just
like that howling to me.Not hard to see
who the alpha dog is in the video.I
mean, the husky isn’t fetching slippers.
That’s it for this week, my Zoltar® Rangers™.I enjoy a wide variety of subjects and
people.Thank you for sharing it with
I love you my dears. The rising temperatures will mean more time
spent outside in play.Enjoy yourself,
but start out slow.We don’t need any
more injuries than the Packers do.Keep
your eyes peeled for motorcycles and kids.And kids on motorcycles. I love you all.

"The famed Bald Eagles from Decorah, Iowa are back on their nest and ready to start a new family! World famous and live streamed via the internet by the Raptor Resource Center, anyone can view the parents raise their eaglets from egg to fledglings from the comfort of their homes. Using infrared cameras and microphones, the eagles can be seen around the clock during the nesting season, which starts in January or February and runs till June."
