    The moose are back in the roads

    There may be fewer of them statewide but WMUR reported a couple of car/moose accidents this morning. The wetland patch at the end of my road adjacent to RT2 had signs yesterday of a moose visiting.

    The Bear have woken up too. I've seen two in NH within the past 3 weeks.

    Not only in NH only: Moose: https://www.wfsb.com/news/multiple-p...63fda8e71.html
    Bear: https://www.wfsb.com/news/dog-brutal...2487c895b.html
    https://www.wfsb.com/news/bear-kille...b12359d87.html

    Now Pardon me while I make sure that Ralph the Wonder Llama is still in his pen as CT drivers are not good avoiding beast with sharp teeth
    Have fun & be safe

    I hope they didn't hit the moose trained to sign complicated insurance forms.

    They say they leave on snow shoes and comeback on snowshoes......that's the black flies of course and they are not just on the roads.
