One argument about cryptocreatures or aliens’ improbable existence on earth is that no one, for the moment, is able to bring a nice clean photographic evidence, especially today with the availability of digital cameras and smartphones [cue The X-Files Theme].

But look at that. This is a fox. I kid you not. A very nice fox. It was maybe ten yards, three meters from me, lurking in the nearby field, hoping to be very invisible from that strange human on the road and keeping quiet.

You have to understand that when I’m walking at night, in order to not be hit by a drunken driver on the narrow, agricultural roads I’m using to go home or to work, I’m very visible. And by very visible, I’m meaning “lighthouse wearing a hi-viz jacket while shooting fireworks” visible. I have reflective stripes on my clothes, a very powerful red light on my backpack and a fucking 350+ lumens headlamp. And you can see on the last picture that the light was powerful enough to see the colour of the grass. 

So, this is what a picture of a nearby fox in the night, illuminated by a powerful flashlight and taken by “one of the best cameraphone on the market” (Sony words, certainly not mine) looks like.

Moons in June
I’ve given up on that stuff
Arms have charms
But I’ve no hope of falling in love

The rest of life pales in significance
I’m looking for somebody with whom to dance
With whom to dance? With whom to dance?
I’m looking for somebody with whom to dance

I’m quite shocked to discover than one of the prettiest song of TDC is not a Neil Hannon song at all, but instead a cover of the other great songwriters of this century, TMF. Positively shocked.

West of the Cascades are more green & even home to temperate rainforests. You get misty rain and overcast days.

@robrewsto said:

The US Pacific Northwest is considered rainy due to the proximity of the Cascade mountains to the coast, which causes a rain shadow. The regions of Oregon & Washington that are east of the Cascades are desert/high desert.

Hi ! thanks for the input. Just so you know, it was more a tongue-in-cheek comment of @old-foolsmal du pays. After all, you’ll just have to check my “meteo” tag to note that I live in an area mostly known in Switzerland for its brutal rapist/serial killer and perpetual cloud over the main town ;o)

To be honest, my main concern about living in WA would be more Patriot Act than rain.

[De la neige en été]

On s’attend donc au pire, il faut en profiter
We’re expecting the worst, we should take advantage of it
On a pas tous les jours de la neige en été
It’s not everyday we have snow in Summer
