The natural world around me, both a few steps and a few miles, away.

Out of My Rear Window 11/21/10
Cold and brisk today. The feeders have been very quiet all morning so far. No birds around at all, nor any squirrels. There is a pile of mourning dove feathers near the feeder, but that's been there for a couple of days, so I don't think that's the cause. Maybe they feel as depressed as I do today.
I'm depressed because we got some very bad news yesterday. There is a case of EHV1 at the track. This is a serious neurological disease that affects horses. One barn has been quarantined. Because we volunteers travel from barn to barn, we came to the unwanted conclusion that we cannot go to the track until quarantine has been lifted. We go from barn to barn getting listings, and we don't want to unwittingly carry the virus from one barn to another.
