Today Is Another Twofer

The Rodman Dam

First, the damn dam may finally, thankfully, be coming down.
Nearly fifty years later, the biggest mistake in the history of
Florida's natural environment is about to become ancient history.
The Rodman Dam is facing the final hoop to be jumped through
and wiser/cooler heads in this state may indeed prevail at last.
Can you hear the sighs of wildlife up and down the Ocklawaha River?

The Babies Are Headed North

After a tumultuous winter in the South, the fledgling
Whooping Cranes have left Alabama and are headed
North to Wisconsin for the summer.
One female left early and is already up there.
Hopefully next winters trip to Florida will be unfettered
by beaurcratic red tape and human interference.
Safe journey little ones, see you this winter~
