|THERE'S A STRANGER STANDING ON THE CORNER...|
|AND BUDDY DOESN'T LIKE HIS LOOKS!!|
Wednesday, 9:00 AM. 24 degrees F at the ferry dock, 21 on the back porch. Wind SW, mostly calm with light gusts. the sky is overcast, the humidity 80%. The barometer is falling, currently at 29.79". The week ahead is predicted to be mostly cloudy and overcast, with daily snow showers. Time for a January thaw.
We are still walking on eggshells, as the ice has not melted, and the fine-grained beach sand the city spreads on icy roads provides little traction for either tire or boot.
Someone built a large snowman right on the corner of 10th St. and Wilson Ave., and Buddy saw it from half a block away and pointed it. He was very wary as we approached it. It was a stranger, and Buddy didn't like him at all!
He didn't bark, he didn't growl; but tugging at the leash, he wouldn't let us get any closer than about 30 feet away from it.
