It is single digit temperature and I leave my appartment at 4AM. I am driving and I pass a lump in the road the back half of a deer. I kept my eys peeled for the front half but I never found it.
I have never seen so much roadkill in my life. Mostly racoons , deer and skunks. The other day I was driving a local to Walmart when I swore I saw a weasel about three feet long cross the highway. I joked to the local don't you ever say another word about NYC rats. He took me seriously but told me that what we just saw was a fisher .
The locals call them fisher cats but they are related to weasels.
Now the locals are telling me that I look like a Vermonter. Fortunately, I still have my thick NYC- New Jersey accent that people still mistake for hoodlumese. The other day I was eating with a local and a kid asked me if I was a hitman. One seriously has to consider the weather when dressing. I put sweatpants over my jeans on cold days . I wanted to drive in my winter boots but I found my car going at 85 because the boots are too heavy.
Most of my friends will be gone in two weeks on details. I miss having them around to joke with but I am getting extra work . Each case is a new story and I am trying to get as many done as possible. However some of these people are clueless like the petition I got with one name Monique and Eunice. Sure everyone knows Monique except me. People forget their sex and don't put in information. Yet I do my best each and every day to sort through the mess.
I am amazed at how the left cries about how terrible this country is. Each and everyday people try to come here to build a better life. The stories are similar to the people I know back home. If those on the far left are not happy please leave . Go to Canada, France but promise you won't come back even for a visit. There are scores of Cubans, Chinese and others who are more worthy of being a member of my family then your deranged far left types.
I was informed the actual temperature is -6. I think I better head to Walmart and get socks.
