The Snow

One week away, one week away, one week away!
We got a couple of inches of snow last night. I will try to get outside to take some pictures. Never fear.

Right now I'm obsessed with the mountain gorillas of the Democratic Republic of Congo.  There's oil in Virunga National Park and so this haven for the gorillas may be cut down in size soon.  The people in the DRC are having some arguments about this.  This is one of those things where you can almost see both sides.  Poor country, riches underground, endangered mountain gorillas, only place where they can live in relative safety. No surprise that I'm coming down on the side of the gorillas. I just love gorillas now because of The One and Only Ivan.  Every day I read about gorillas and watch videos of gorillas.  I wish I could be like Dian Fossey and just head over to the DRC to study the gorillas. I need to be a primatologist.  It's in my blood.

I feel like I"m not blogging because I'm not getting outside to take pictures. Maybe I'll also go outside and take pictures when it's light out.

That would be an awesome thing to do. Just jump on a plane and head on over there and observe those gorillas.
