Got up this morning and it was a little bit chilly out.
But I decided to go out and get some pictures of the Westminster construction, despite the cold, because of the new snow.
Then I went over to the park and saw the hill alive with sledders,
the birds flying,
the water flowing,
and the “High Water” sign still up, despite the level being well below normal.
I noticed the Animal Control vehicles driving around the park and finally meeting up in front of the pond.
I was hooked, curious about what was going on. I watched as one guy grabbed a net and headed out to the center of the pond with a police officer. The officer remained on solid ground,
while the animal control guy waded out into the muck and water, coming real close to slipping and falling a couple of times.
He reached out and scooped up a dead duck,
headed back to solid ground,
met up with the police officer,
and headed back to the vehicles.
What the deal with the dead duck was, I have no idea. Why it took 3 Animal Control vehicles and one Police Officer, I don’t know. I was freezing by this time, so I just headed home.
And saw this idiot driving up 1300 East on the way.
Seriously, dude. You could have spent the extra 60 seconds and cleaned off your back window, it wouldn’t have killed you.
And I still have tomorrow off from school. Nice day.
