TCC for 2/4/08

The Caretaker's Concern 2/4/08
Ghetto temp. 52 F. and rising.
Island tmp. 32 F. Yesterday's L/H: 26/37 F.
Current conditions: No wind, complete cloud coverage.

Yet another slow day on the Island. The recent warm weather is slowly melting the snow, this morning felt like early, early Spring--cool humidity. In the afternoon the Caretaker stepped outside of the Ghetto and heard a loud slap, it sounded much like a gun shot from a .22 rifle. The Caretaker looked up and saw a Eagle taking flight. It had been roosting on a tree just off the North corner of the Ghetto. The sound was the slap of its wings coming together upon taking flight. The Caretaker went down to Cocktail point to watch where it might fly to. It landed on the ice about 500 yards off the North side of Cocktail point. The Caretaker ran back for his camera, unfortunately by the time he returned the Eagle was nowhere to be seen. Oh well, perhaps next time.

--The Caretaker
