Today the ice on the lake completely turned! It actually happened so fast I could not keep track as shown in the pics below.
In the spirit of the failed 'snow cam' during a plow run over winter, I got this cool shot on the lake yesterday with the patented 'ice cam' ....in real time!
With a thin layer of ice lingering yesterday and this pic showing the ice rapidly receding this morning,
This rock tossed on the morning ice, was sunken history a couple of hours later.
With a scream from an eagle on the fly, this lone feather found it's winters home embedded within the ice.
Seska is seriously debating upon retrieving that rock mentioned above. For the record, she decided
better of it!
Notice the rigidity of the tail and the forward appearance of momentum in Cherokee's butt.... The thought going through his mind here is, "I walked on it without getting wet 2 months ago...?" Yes, he thought he had it figured out until his ass end broke though the thin ice and his instinct to bolt kicked in!
Not sure here, but I believe her tongue is stuck to the ice....
There's that whole rigidity/rear momentum thing going on again! Another one breaks the ice! These guys seriously had their intelect tested with this whole thawing issue!
At first impression, it looks as though a piece of a satellite fell out of the sky and landed in our yard. However, it is the toppled remains of an era. The old analog antenna that we never used yet was a fixture on our roof came down today! Believe it or not, since we here on the peninsula are still getting most channels through translators, while most of the country find these old antennas obsolete, many Alaskans still are able to use them! Had some Alaskans seen this, I would have been chastised for not taking this to Goodwill...by some.....
Kenai Alaska or Bust: Eviction, conviction and.....taxes?
Again, we bolstered our defenses to fend off the cute little bastards by sealing more potential holes, and running a reinforced venting grate down the entire front eve vents which have become increasingly compromised each summer. PETA would insist they are good little creatures....and any other time I may be convinced of this. However, PETA is not the ones living with these things pooping up our attic, creeping around our house at night, rendering themselves 'play toys' for the dogs during their misguided daytime blindness as they fall out of the sky onto the lawn. Yes, we are really trying to keep their eviction in process here. Maryann said it best today; ever since we got together it seems our destiny and fate is to have to deal with bats every spring and summer. First the cabin in Arnold, then the cabin in Dorrington, and now in Alaska. Oye! Summer's here and the time is right....!
