Today is December 23 and it was clear and I had a chance to document the actual sunshine.  The sun came out from behind Pioneer Peak at 12:20. It ducked behind different peaks in the Chugach range until it finally set at a little before 3 PM.  Actual sunshine was less than two hours.

Working daylight was closer to 6 hours.

Unexplained Decease of #45

Found #45 White cow with red points away from the herd and less than 24 hours dead today 12/17/13.  No broken bones.  Was in good health Friday when they were found "out".  Perhaps ate something bad but no one else is hurting apart from being nearly twenty below zero.  Her first calf was weaned and is doing fine.  Incision on the shoulder is something I have never seen before.  Is this how cattle mutilation by aliens happens???
