thin ice, originally uploaded by Lizzie~Belle.

I'm supposed to be off today, but with the weather forecast for tomorrow calling for snow, sleet, and driving rain, I decided to switch days off this week. Which is really too bad, because today's a rather nice day for December, and I had a bunch of things I'd planned to do. Oh, well.

Down at Heritage Park, there was a thin skin of ice over part of the pond, and the gulls were jockeying for space while trying not to fall through. By the time I left, there was very little ice left, and the gulls were all crammed onto it. You can see geese in the background, floating on the water that hadn't frozen over. Also, one of the swans seems to be missing. I'm shocked that they're still there; usually by this time, they've been trundled off to the zoo for the winter. I wonder if they just couldn't catch the other one?

Today is voting day here in Massachusetts, in the primary for Senator (to fill the late Ted Kennedy's seat). After careful consideration, I've decided to vote for Capuano. He seems to me to be the best chance of having a real liberal in the Senate who won't cave to corporate or special interests. I would like to have voted for Martha Coakley, as having a woman senator would be nice, but a couple of things she's said and done just didn't sit right with me. I think she will probably win, but I don't think she's the best choice. Also, she sounds like she's from Minnesota. What's up with that? The western MA accent isn't quite that flat. She should sound like [livejournal.com profile] perseph12; instead, she sounds like my cousin Jan. *g*
