Something About November

By Eric Justian
December 9, 2009

I have shirked my duty as an EverydayCitizen writer. I did not write anything last month. Nothing at all. This month I must write extra to be less shirky.

Frankly, I'm not sure where November went. I remember Turkey.

October. October I remember. I was hanging up Halloween decorations with my son, I watched a lot of scary movies, we went trick-or-treating with our kids and some friends...

...and then we had Turkey and cranberries...

And then it was December.

Does anybody else feel like years start out slow and accelerate the closer you get to December?

Today it's snowing. A lot. With wind. Suddenly it's like a tundra out there. The temperatures have dropped from the 40s and 50s and Winter has finally made itself known.

The Chicago locks have been closed for over ten days in an effort to keep Asian carp, a group of four nasty carp, from the Great Lakes. That's been the biggest occupier of my blogging time lately. There are many who suggest it's a lost cause. It's inevitable, they say, that the fish will get into the lakes and shred the ecosystem and the fishing industry. But I don't buy that. The day you say it's inevitable is the day you stop fighting.

Hi, I'm from Muskegon, too... and it's funny to hear someone else talk about it! I honestly love this town. Like Taste of Muskegon. That was wild.
