Wimping Out

Two faithful Warbler Walk participants, Barbara and Jeff, showed up at the Western Waterfront Trail this morning, but none of us really wanted to walk about in the rain, and my radar showed another band of rain approaching us (the one to the right of the place marker--that was at 7 am and I got this screen cap of the system for the earliest time I could go back to, 8:05 am). I wouldn't have been able to wear my hearing aids (they're not waterproof), forgot to bring along my rain pants, didn't think to wear waterproof boots, and I'm getting wimpy in my dotage. So we'll never know what spectacular birds we might have seen today.

  1. When Lynn and I woke at 6am we decided to do the same (wimp out), but simply turned over to sleep again, lulled by the wind-driven rain and roaring Miller Creek... especially glad we stayed abed knowing that the bird walk didn't happen.
