Now we have two, at least.
I was a bit lucky today, I drove to work before the rain started to fall and they had fixed the roads when I was driving home. I drove behind the plow lorry the last part on the way home and for once I could see more cars than mine because we were plenty that drove behind it 🙂 It was so big that even if anyone of us had wanted to pass it, it wasn’t possible. Cars from the opposite direction had huge problems when they met it 🙂
I’m waiting for news on the huge snow storm in the north-eastern USA. I’ve read it will be the biggest one in over years but so far I can’t find anything online. I hope they are mistaken because it’s one thing getting that much snow on the countryside, we usually have fire places so we can stay warm if the power breaks, not so many have that in big cities and I’m pretty sure the will be power breaks if the predictions are right.
The dogs started to behave rather annoying when we were out walking yesterday afternoon, it would be to put it mildly to say that they were very interested in something. They were all over the place and at first I couldn’t understand what it was. They followed what I first thought was one track and that animal had dug some in the ground, perhaps just minutes before we arrived. Then I saw it, that giant paw print in the snow. Then I saw another just as big following alongside the first prints I saw. We now have at least two wolves here and I guess that means this now is wolf territory.
One of my work friends said he had found wolf tracks where he lives and that is around 50 km (31 mile) away from here and they also say that they have found tracks south of here. My guess is that they now have the bog as base and then walks around in their new big territory. I’m really annoyed about missing them since they must have been at least almost visible when we came walking 🙂 Some people are afraid but I’ve told them that the risk for humans is minimal but they should have their dogs close if out walking. Personally I like this but I can understand why people with sheep, cattle or horses aren’t happy about this.
I was thinking about getting a paintball gun. Not that I’m a fan of paintball 🙂 But since we now have wolves here it would be good to have some kind of defence if they would get a bit too curious or come a bit too close to my dogs. I don’t want to kill any wolf, just scare them. They say it hurts like h… when being hit by one of those bullets 🙂 Perhaps getting one of those things they often have on soccer games, horns driven by an aerosol can. We would most likely all become deaf 🙂 but if it scares too curious wolves it’s worth it 🙂
It’s time for a pot of tea and something to eat. The dogs have already eaten and so have the cats. I think I’ll make some cocoa, the weather sort of demands that 🙂
Have a great day!
