    Looking out back - one of our flood light to show the windblown-ness, and one of the yard with a flash to show quantity.

    18 months in Fairbanks, Alaska pretty much had me scared straight. I don't mind it in small doses (like in the mountains for a few hours) but I don't want to live in cold weather constantly.

    Okay, I need help with this one, 'cause the "invisible flash" sucks all the detail out. I know the critter facing us is a fox. Is the critter with its back to us a raccoon?? The ears are too small to be another fox, and the tail is too fluffy to be a cat.

    Also, I'm tired of the deer showing me their crotches.

    Looks like a raccoon to me. Big chubby body, small-ish ears . . .

    Okay, I got the raccoon/fox pic parsed in my brain now - both animals are walking toward us; the fox is trying to sneak up on the coon; the coon suddenly heard him and is whipping his head around to look behind him. DAMN I wish that was video, I'd love to see what happened next!

    Your game cameras don't do video?

    The ones that shoot video are more versatile because you can take frame grabs. :async: :P

    We did an undercover shoot a few years ago to catch unlicensed contractors and explained the game cameras mounted on walls as a poor man's security system. They bought it. :lol:

    Cooked a tomahawk ribeye for the first time.

    I'd avoided doing one because I was intimidated by the dimensions and the cost (this one is Prime, so $$$) but I've done enough really large ribeyes that it turned out perfect.

    Apparently the local fox visits every night around the same time.

    squirrels have a rough time in the winter. Their fur doesn't insulate them too well and they have a pretty high metabolism. Thus they have to eat like the dickens to take in enough calories to survive when it's cold.

    And I put bread crumbs out on the porch 4 days ago and they're still there. I saw one squirrel get one a bury in the snow on the deck. :wtf:

    Apparently a prospector and his mule died a couple of blocks over. We decided to alter the route for our walk rather than disturb the nice wildlife. :shock:

    When we had our snow in DC the other day, someone built a little snowman on the corner of Franconia and Loisdale in Springfield.

    Sorry for the low contrast. I was shooting from the Mighty Jeep as I waited at the stoplight and it was around sunset, AND beneath an overpass.

    I thought about buying one recently, but they are expensive. I don't think I'd have a problem cooking one though.

    Someone built a snowman near me as well. It's almost melted by now.

    This is a 1/48 model of the Saab J21, a Swedish fighter that served from WWII until the 1950s. I thought it looked cool, but the kit was a pain in the ass to build. The snow is baby powder, which is now all over the fucking place. :lol:

    I had an even worse mishap when I was a kid and tried to make a winter diorama with a PzKpfw IV.

    Elmer's Glue and baby powder don't stick together very well. My mom was pissed. :(
