DrFumblefinger ·
Hi Kirsten, Behind in my emails, but did want you to know that the last of your series on Celebrating Nature went live today. I want to personally thank you so very much for sharing your tremendous talents with our audience. I enjoyed reading -- and learned a lot -- from your posts and greatly enjoyed your wonderful photography! I'm sure many others did, too. If you have more material you'd like to post on TravelGumbo in the coming months, it would be our pleasure to host it. Hope you had a...

Hurricane Joaquin crossed the Atlantic and got split in two by the jet stream. France got trapped in the middle of the two. Allowing cold air from Siberia to blow across northern Europe. So the Geese have arrived here on the wind too. 3 Weeks too early. Its what the remnants of Hurricanes do.

I was kidding about the polar route. Isn't that what people say when a thing is closest by going north? I didn't have any idea about the rest. I just looked at my globe. Gumbo is a fascinating host.

Re: Gumbo's Pic of the Day, January 15th, 2015: Winter Flowers ?

DrFumblefinger ·
It's a beautiful flower, Garry, and wish that they were blooming out there now. I'm looking at a foot of snow on the ground as I write this. Last year in Calgary was one of the longest and coldest winters on record. This winter is somewhat milder, but still with enough cold days. What does this mean when added to what you describe? I have no idea. My own view is that we've only been studying the planet's weather for about a century with some detail now. That, in the scope of the history of...

Re: Yellowstone National Park in Winter

DrFumblefinger ·
Thanks so very much for making us a part of your fascinating road-trip by sharing your visit to this unique place at such a special time. It's so rare to actually talk to someone who visited Yellowstone in the winter, much less to read such a wonderfully written report and to share in your experience through your beautiful photos. I'm sorry you didn't get to see wolves in the wild, but in this you are not alone. As many times as I've been in the wilderness, I've yet to see them (though I was...

Re: Where in the World is Gumbo? (#119)

DrFumblefinger ·
Time for another clue. Gumbo has reached the town that is his destination, in the presence of some friends. The type of gear you see is typical of what visitors to this part of the globe use when they travel here. The construction of this home is also typical of the local style. Does that help? As an aside, does anyone recognize the fellow in the yellow jacket? He is quite well known in his area of expertise (although is not the point of our puzzle).
