Faster than a speeding weasel

I haven't had a chance to officially identify this little guy, but I did manage to take a picture of him in one of the rare moments that he was not in motion. I've also had the pleasure of meeting quite a few siksik, although they've been hiding since the temperatures dropped the last week. However, I can't complain because I could be having an early preview of a blizzard had I been in Arctic Bay... How many cm did you actually end up with, Kennie?

Given that the sun is still spotless, the solar wind is pretty slow and the kp is nothing to write home about - its pretty cool that I managed to see what I'd call okay northern lights. Not good enough to wake people up for, but worth taking the time to enjoy. I can't even imagine what they'd look like with a kp of 5..... bring on the sunspots!
