There was this lake, and it was right outside of town. We used to go fishing and swimming and canoein' in it. And, uh, see, one November, this big flock of ducks came in.. and landed on that lake. And then the temperature dropped so fast that the lake just froze right there. And they... er... the ducks... they... flew off, you see, and they took that lake right with them. Now they say that lake is somewhere over in Georgia. Can you imagine that?

I couldn't close enough to snap a photo, but a large river (a tributary of the Chesapeake) runs along my work. There was a bald eagle just chilling on the ice yesterday. It was awesome!

CSB time:

When I was doing my on-the-job-training stint as a firefighter, we were called out to rescue a beaver that appeared to be stuck on a pond.

All the rescue agencies responded. A veterinarian was brought in...and in all their infinite wisdom, they determined that the beaver had lumbered out onto the ice, took a nap and became frozen to the ice once the sun set...Personally, I called it Darwinism At Work. Damn beaver was too stupid to live as far as I concerned.

Of course, guess who gets tasked with "rescuing" said beaver? Why yes...yours truly.

So, off I go to don a cold water rescue suit and then proceed to slither and slide across the ice to a now angry-ish beaver...and pour warm water over it's feet in order to free it from the ice.

It worked. I lived. The beaver lived (probably got hit by a car the next day though or drowned or got stuck in a trap)...and the media circus that had assembled got their "good news" story of the day out of it.

Yup. The fark is this "goose" shiat? In Minnesota, we understand that despite being the same species, we must recognize and therefore segregate those of a different color.

I never knew, until today that some people call that game "Duck, duck, grey duck." Is that an American thing? I'm in Canada, and we always called it "Duck, Duck, Goose."

Isn't a guy with a truck supposed to come and take them to the zoo?

So that was a duck, not a goose? I did a Wikipedia search for "Grey duck" and "Gray duck," and there doesn't seem to be any such kind of duck.

It is very much a Minnesota thing. My friends from out of state have always given me a very quizzical look when I bring up the grey duck variant.

It is a specifically Minnesota thing, as far as I know. I made fun of a friend of mine incessantly  in college for this and other weird MN-related quirks.

This Minnesotan approves of "Goose".

The last picture in the series looked like the goose had been set on fire.

Is that how you de-ice them?
