Since Paradise burned down and I moved into the (northern) California Valley, my wildlife encounters have dropped sharply.

As you can see from this map, there's a greenbelt that runs straight out of the hills (upper Bidwell Park) and into Lower Bidwell Park, which bisects the city.

I often take my walks in Lower Bidwell, and frequently see Coyotes in broad daylight. Even outside the park, as Coyotes adjust just fine to suburban life. We haven't had a Mountain Lion sighting in Lower Bidwell in about a decade, but it does happen.

Here's the satellite map of Paradise, if you were curious to the extent of the damage from the fire. Current Population is about 1/10th pre-fire level.

There's certainly some fascinating things going on.

Like, it seems the airport is not being used as an airport but as some kind of staging centre? There's cars driving and parked all over what would have been the runway and a bunch of shipping containers/trailers piled up at the end.

Or the couple of little parks here and there which were restored/grew back when everything around them (including all the other greenery) is still scorched earth.

And the Google map markers for businesses which are just dust is a very modern (albeit completley unintentional), bit of post-apocalyptica.

This is just the ending of the tweet but I think it's better to see this response and work back.

the first who let the dogs out joke in a decade to get anything other than a blank stare from me

my lips very slightly, almost imperceptibly, moved upwards for a very short period of time

How fleeting are all human passions compared with the massive continuity of ducks.

I've been watching Gavin make cheese for years.

Mostly its people telling him that because he isn't in *specific region* of *specific country* or using *specific milk* from *specific cow/goat* he's bastardizing mozzarella pr chedder or brie or some other bullshit. He's a great guy though and has taken to calling his cheeses "almost blah blah" or some such to stop that.

Sucks that his wife got cancer right before covid 19 and I hope she stays healthy through the pandemic.
