BEHOLD THE SUN!
Even in this very rainy place, in fact the second rainiest place in the
continental US, the sun does occasionally appear in winter. Like today, for instance, this fine and warming Saturday morning. It’s not that I don’t love rain. You’d better if you live and work in this neighborhood. It’s just that’s it’s been awhile, so it’s nice to know the big guy is still up there. Mid-60’s and sunny is the forecast for the next few days. Not bad for the first week of January.
LOON RESEARCH REPORT. Our first week of loon research for 2019 with Earthwatch begins this week, and I am so excited. Weeks and weeks lay ahead spending my days with loons, loon scientists and loon lovers from all over the US and the world. We even have a volunteer coming from Sweden! My question is this. Who could possibly choose a cruise to the Bahamas this time of year when the opportunity lies right here to hang out with such good company in such a beautiful setting? And then there are all these interesting people from all over. There’s that too. ~B
