Go Wiki...

A moose's body structure, with a large heavy body suspended on long spindly legs, makes these animals particularly dangerous when hit by passenger cars with low ground clearances. Generally, when colliding with a moose at high speed, the car's bumper and front grille will break the moose's legs, causing the body of the moose to fall onto the car's hood and delivering the bulk of the animal's weight into the windshield, crushing the front roof support beams and anyone in the front seats.[76] Collisions of this type are frequently lethal; seatbelts offer no protection, and airbags may not deploy or be of much use if they do.[77] Although vehicles with higher clearances (such as trucks) are typically immune from this effect, the force of striking any 270+ kg (600+ pound) object at high speed should not be underestimated. These risks led to the development of a vehicle test referred to as the "moose test" (Swedish: Älgtest, German: Elchtest).

In Newfoundland and Labrador, it is recommended to motorists to use caution between dusk and dawn, because that is when moose are most active and most difficult to see, increasing the risk of collisions.[82] Local moose sightings are often reported on radio stations so that motorists can take care while driving in particular areas.

It's true, on my preferred station they will update immediately with a moose sighting.

And we lost power. The whole Avalon seems to be without power. Not sure what to do about my two filters.

Silverfang, that's nice they have some restrictions on hunting the moose. I honestly have no idea how the hunting restrictions are here. My mom's cousin hunts pheasant and geese but that's about it.
The hunting restrictions seem contradictory to me. There are more moose on the island than people. Taking a couple more per license won't harm the population. Not that I condone hunting, because I don't like to think of the pain and suffering involved and the separated mama/calf pairs.

Don't drive. I don't think Silver does either. And my friend/acquaintances who do drive I don't really hang out with! Rest easy :) Might have been a few years since I was on the highways.

We woke up at 8, seen everything was closed and went back to bed. As we were falling asleep the power went out. I came out and checked the tank but nothing I could do about it. Woke up 1130 and everything is on. The filter is fine and the fish are good. I don't know about shrimpies though. Hope you and, Ashes and the tanks are all okay!!
No trees down on my street that I can see. I don't understand why everything is closed. I used to walk to school in winds stronger than those out there now....(not that I'm complaining about my day off!!)
