300th Post and Bunny Tracks in New Fallen Snow
Today, folks, is my 300th article! I started this blog on May 26, 2009 and have not missed a single day since. In fact, this 300th article comes on the 264th day since the start date. But, the number of articles is not what I’m most proud of; it’s the consistency. I’ve written in the car and during vacations. I’ve written while sick too. I’m also proud of the progress we’ve made. I remember those first few months of only 20 visitors a day, and it wasn’t much fun to see. Then, somewhere along the way, visitors started pouring in. My goal was to reach Google PR 5 by the end of my first year. I’m not there yet (hovering at 4 still), but the year isn’t over yet, and I think I’m close. I did, however get a site redesign, and a logo which I’m happy about (Some of you may remember me when I was Mekeliki.com). Almightydad is much better. Don’t you think?
I went for a walk this morning and was one of the first to disturb the new fallen snow. The first were all the bunnies. And, boy are there a lot of rabbits living in Boulder. I walked from my House in North Boulder all the way around CU campus, and back through Pearl Street to home. I must have seen 100 sets of rabbit tracks along my rout. I mention it because no matter how pretty the snow is undisturbed, it’s prettier when I see signs of animal life in the city. Of course some of that animal life isn’t so inviting. Last year I saw mountain lion tracks running through my back yard. Anyway, it was pretty, and I’m happy to have seen it, big and small.
What the heck is that thing? It’s been sitting in this guy’s yard for the past month (at least a month). It hasn’t melted in warm weather so it can’t be real ice. It looks like the ice cave of the Abominable Snowman of the North from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. But, why would somebody put one in their front yard? Is it home made or store bought? And what would a person do with it when winter is over? Weird, just weird.
