Finally had a mid-west rite of passage.
So, this happened: stopped to see a dear friend on the long drive home yesterday. We were driving to a restaurant and I hit a good sized deer with my rental car. Friend and I are OK. Deer was hit broadside and rolled 3 times, then got up and ran off. Car was damaged but drivable, but significant damage to front bumper, lights and hood.

First the snow storm then lake effect snow until sunset tonight. Heaviest snow is probably north and east of me, but still expecting around 8" (20cm) locally. Was observing near white-out conditions before sunset yesterday. This is crazy early for this sort of storm.
Too bad my phone sucks for night photography. But here’s my best attempts using a night vision app. Given that I had to take a glove off to do this in now 0F weather, this was the best I was going to manage.
cute kitty with eye contact.
This is Maven, who is a feisty purr box. She was a young pregnant mom cat when my sister rescued her 14 years ago. But she doesn’t play well with other cats so she was sent off to live with my parents. Then they decided to move, and I rescued her again, driving her 11 hours back home. She ended up with a dear friend of mine, where she’s lived ever since. Such a good kitty.
