Entering Duck Mode

Start of last year's race

Preparations for the May 5 Estes Park Duck Race are in full swing. Wayne has a garage full of little rubber ducks (all counted and sorted and ready to float down the Fall River). He and I have about 1000 new ducks to number (on their bottoms with a Sharpie) to replace the ones lost or damaged last year. The total number of ducks that run the race is typically between five and six thousand.

This is what's going on outside at the moment (4 p.m. April 15). The big fat flakes are melting as fast as they hit the ground.
