I can confidently say that my doe has taken her fawn(s) across the road, out of the beaver meadows, and up the mountain. We have not seen them for almost a week now. It is a big relief!
The white moth photograph from the Fourth of July was identified as a white spring moth today at bugguide.net.
The stilt walkers that were injured in the Fourth of July parade were thankfully only bruised. They were treated and released at the hospital that day.
The house fire in Orleans for which the fire trucks and crews had to abruptly leave the parade was not an awful fire. It was bad enough but mostly the damage was from smoke.
The Barton Chronicle quoted the fire chiefs, who met after the Barton parade, as describing the parade as "the parade from hell."
