7 December 2016 (Wednesday)

From Jean Clausen's diary:
9/24/38 Dorothy, Ginger, Mary, Helen, Luella, Cecile and I walked home. We had fun. Washington played and lost 15-0 but [Lincoln] swell.
'Luella', there's a name you don't see much.

Cold day out monitoring. Was at the west end of Penn Cove on Whidbey at 8:30 this morning although I didn't start until 9:30. Wasn't too cold, although it was down to about 25 overnight and only got up to around 33 out there (cold for around these parts). They were trenching again. I was a bit irritated when I got there because they had backfilled the trench with the potentially intact site stuff in it, but he said they covered it with fabric and sent photos to DAHP, etc. So that was okay. Was in the sun for much of the morning. I had on two pairs of long underwear, flannel-lined pants, two thermal t-shirts, a turtleneck, light sweatshirt, and a heavy hooded sweatshirt. Sheesh. Here is a view of the Cascades this afternoon:

Also found an intact Mason jar. Not terribly exciting or important, but we get so few intact ones that I thought we could keep it for reference. Other than that, mostly quiet.

Drive home was mostly uneventful. Oh, the drive there. While on Whidbey, this happened (copied from Facebook):
So I'm driving on Whidbey Island in a line of about 6 cars with a police car leading the way a couple hundred yards ahead. The cop puts on his lights for a couple of seconds but I didn't know why because there was no one around for him to catch. Turned out there were a couple of deer next to the road looking like they wanted to cross so he was letting us know so we could slow down.
Good for him.

Too busy to be sad today, although I was kind of angry for a while. Not like mad mad mad angry, just. . . .angry.
