Official Counter: Randy Doss

Observers:

Visitors:
Alone again naturally - Gilbert O'Sullivan. But at least this time it makes
more sense!


Weather:
The knob was socked in for the entire time I was there.0 temps didn't get
to what my weather report projected. 50 all watch with 0 wind.

Raptor Observations:
Could not have seen a Hawk unless it landed on me.

Non-raptor Observations:
The fog was so thick that standing in front of the Knob sign I could not
see the trash can. It was actually dangerous on the parkway. Visibility was
100-150 feet.
