When in doubt blame Sasquatch...




"MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) — A northern Idaho woman told police she crashed into a deer because she was distracted by a Sasquatch in her rearview mirror.
The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports that the 50-year-old Tensed woman was driving south when she struck a deer near Potlatch.
The woman told Benewah County Sheriff’s officials that she saw a Sasquatch chasing a deer on the side of the road while driving. She says she checked one of her mirrors to get a second look at the beast and when she looked up, the deer ran in front of her.
Sheriff’s officials marked the incident as a vehicle versus deer collision but did not report any evidence of Bigfoot."

Doggy IQ test


The girls, back on spring break, decided to give the dogs an IQ test.
Yes, Tar and IQ.
Amazingly, astonishingly, surprisingly Tar scored higher than Abby!!
Going to the test site it says there is a lot of discussion and opinions
about the whole thing. So we reserve judgement.

More birds

Another sign of spring. Sandhill Cranes stopping by on their way north. One of the towns holds a festival inviting all birders to come in and study the birds.

More adventures on I-5


Image result for I-5 freeway drawing

"Officials plan to close part of Interstate 5 near Joint Base Lewis-McChord early Thursday for removal of what appeared to be a buried land mine.
Officials with JBLM said in a news release said that railroad workers unearthed the old unexploded munition while working on tracks along the interstate Wednesday.
The JBLM Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit determined the munition to be real, and that it should be removed for detonation."

Seattle has a very bad day!



Yesterday all hell broke loose in Seattle.
There is one spot where you leave I-5 in the middle of Seattle
to get on to I-90 which is the most traveled pass in the state of
Washington.
A tanker truck full of propane fell over in just the right spot and flooded
I-5 southbound and northbound and the entrance of
I-90 eastbound and westbound was shut down too (with another truck falling over).
Shut them all down. For about 8 hours.
They had to evac the homeless who live under the freeways
and make sure all their fires were extinguished.
Raining, snowing and then lightning hit the Space Needle.
Twice.
I emailed the Seattle kids and hoped they were all well.
Eldest Son mailed back: "It's the End Times!"

One event made me smile. A taco truck stuck in all this
mess opened up for business and served all their fellow
stuck-ees.
