The last two days have been strange drives to work at lunch.
Yesterday as I was driving back from lunch I saw an unusual sight. I was about two miles from work on a busy road. A six point buck was in the front yard of an apartment complex, along a fairly busy road, waiting to cross the road. The traffic was rather slow on the road at that time. The buck did wait until I passed then went into a small wooden gully. I'm fairly sure he was chasing does and was following a trail that lead him into a busy populated area.
I continued onto work and was about a mile from work on another busy road with a car in front of me and two cars coming toward me. A doe ran across the road between the two cars coming toward me and directly in front of the car in front of me. The doe made a really chancy crossing but it did make it. What are all these deer running in the area on busy streets at 1 PM? Why it's the rut on full bore.
Today the strange thing is after a real mild Fall we are having snow flurries as I went and came back from lunch. It was only two weeks ago that I was going out and power washing my deck. I'm glad that job is complete with this cold weather.
