Getting the house ready for our house sitter, I went out in the early morning dark to sweep the driveway. I made it down and turned around to go back up the driveway and there were two moose casually munching the mountain ash right next to the driveway - less than ten feet away. I didn't even see them until I was down at the bottom. Obviously, they'd paid no attention to me as I'd swept the driveway, but now that I knew they were there I was less comfortable going back up the driveway. I was just wearing a long sleeved t-shirt over a t-shirt. No phone. No camera.
My neighbor was starting his car across the street. While I went over to see if I could get a ride up the driveway, a school bus, lights flashing, went by and the moose meandered off.
Here's a photoshop recreation of the scene. Yeah Barbara, you could have done this much better. But I'm trying to get this up before I have to board the plane.
Yes, they were really that close and were preoccupied with eating like I was preoccupied with a clean driveway. (Just getting off the frost dust that had accumulated the last couple of days.)
