And so the weekend starts.
It has been cloudy most of the day but the clouds were so thin that the sun shone through and the temperature rose to 10C (50F) and since the wind that was, was weak it felt like much warmer. Today was the last working day before easter starts and I’ll have a four day weekend now since Easter Monday is a holiday too here. Many don’t work the entire day today because they want to go to where they are spending the holiday already today so the roads can be rather crazy to drive on. Why drive careful and reach the destination when one can drive like insane and risk not only ones own life bt all around too?
I want home one and a half hour early too and missed the worst traffic, most people won’t drive to this county but from so the only thing I had to do was to look that no one coming towards me would pass other cars in a dangerous way risking hitting me 🙂 They have lowered the speed limit here close to the lake because people who want to watch the cranes tend not to watch the road they are driving on and they have put up extra traffic signs so no one can miss that it is forbidden to stop on highways just because they happens to see a bird or two 🙂
As soon as the cranes have flown to Norway everything calms down here and we can all take a deep breath, relax and see us selves as lucky to surviving another crane tourist season 🙂 We’ve had 18 800 cranes here a few days ago but yesterday there were only 14 200 of them left. Here’s a link to the web cameras so You can see the birds for Your self: Cranes A new window should pop up if You click on the link. Just remember the time difference, we are six hours ahead of the American east coast and nine of the American west coast.
It is time to make something to eat and then I think I’ll find myself a book. They show Snow White and the Huntsman on channel Six tonight, I have it myself and the girl playing Snow White only seems to have one facial expression, desperate/ tired 🙂 It is the evil queen that saves the movie from being totally bad 🙂 There’s a garden show from BBC on the Knowledge channel but it’s one of those we’ll help You to create Your dream garden programs so I think I’ll find myself a book 🙂 Tomorrow I’ll write something about our Easter traditions.
Have a great day!
