Anyways, feeling sorry for myself aside, I decided to take a walk to the dyke again because the snow is more or less disappeared from the sidewalks and roads, and the sky was surprisingly clear in the afternoon (totally opposite from what the forecast predicted, again). But I don't remember the forecast mentioning the strong winds that I experienced while walking along the waterfront.
The strong wind quickly blew away all the clouds and resulted in a beautiful blue sky.
One thing after the snow had melted away is leaving behind these strange marks on the grass. Is it formed by aliens? Perhaps, but a more likely answer is that it is used by animals (e.g. voles and mice) who traveled around underneath the snow pack during the snowfall, and leaving behind the well-traveled routes visible to naked eyes. It is a good indication of the presence of these animals. (Edit: These are called "subnivean" tunnels as later found by Huckleberry Days as well.)
Meanwhile, the wind was still strong and the gulls kept on coming and gliding.
Saw this heron standing on top of the hill. I was going to take a picture of it before it took off angrily. I certainly made many animals angry today.
The same hornet's nest as last month.
Heading back home, at the golf course, I saw this Bald Eagle carrying a stick to be put on this nest. Could this mean that it's a resident of this home?
The moon was rising.Time for me to get going.
