A very careful coyote -

This is an illustration of the animal bridge to be built over our very busy mountain pass - Snoqualmie Pass.
The bridge is done and the first animal to go across was a coyote.

The news media had fun with it saying the coyote crossed safely
“avoiding traffic, anvils, ACME rockets & roadrunners!”

Two of DIL's sisters live within the quake zone. One very close to the epicenter. Both families are fine.

Very thankful for all.

Cross state game

In the post below I reported on the band/cheer bus that went off the road and all the folks who took care of them.
The stadium left their seats empty as they did not make the game. The opposing Cougars marching band learned the Huskies fight song and came up with a march and display before the game for them.
And we had lots of snow!
(The family farm, about 40 minutes north of the college, got six inches total.)
The game was won by the Huskies (the team of the bus wreck). The twins went to the Huskies UW and their parents and little brother went to the Cougars WSU.
All band members are okay, some bruises and bumps.Thank goodness.

There are always good people

Tonight is our cross state university rivalry football game. The Huskies are in Seattle (go Dawgs!) and the Cougars are way over on the other side of the state (go Cougs!)
The Huskies were busing over their marching band and cheer squad over the Pass. They made it over the Pass but the bus slid off the road and turned on its side about an hour+ north of here. They sent a lot of the band members off to hospitals in various towns and took the rest of them to a very small town elementary school gym for medics to check them out. The town grabbed all their Thanksgiving leftovers and fed all of the band and cheer squad. Later they took them down to another slightly bigger town for the night. Two members are still in the hospital but their injuries are not serious.
Wishing all the best for everyone and a good game for all.

Squirrel Thanksgiving

He is thankful the engineer has bought him his own feeder for a cylinder of nuts and meal worms. Yum! He is thankful Abby and Tar talk a big game but never seem to catch him. He is thankful for the heated water container. He is thankful we are supposed to have a warmer than normal winter this year. He is thankful for the huge fir tree in the backyard where he has his nest.

More smoke

Taken from Alcatraz - about a week apart.
NIL's college football team had to play another CA football team in Reno, Nevada today.
Bob, how are your brother and SIL doing?
