Traffic Report

And now time for our eye in the sky traffic report. Rusty?

The car count is low, but we have seen wild turkeys, raccoons, skunks, bears, coyotes, and lots of other creatures on the woodland trails.

So be prepared for a long commute. Back to you at the news desk.

    LOVED your “eye in the sky” traffic report! What a beautiful site you Sibes are and I’m sure passersby took notice! Great job reporting, Rusty!

    This made me smile! Very good reporting guys!

    And it looks like a Sibe pileup on the overpass, to boot! Better make plans to use an alternate route…is there one?

    Wow! You all sure are versatile!
    Let’s see, what can I do..snack, snooze, surf the kitchen counter…
    Have a nice day!!

    Cheers,

    Rusty should get his own helicopter so he can give even more detailed reports!

    Hmmm. Our roads seem to have a wee bit more snow on them than yours at the moment. We may need to get a, ah, more local traffic reporter. (Or at least make sure our ‘Moose Alert System’ is working….)

    Mom would love to deal with critter traffic! Luckily, she doesn’t have to deal much with car traffic anymore either, but she used to. BLAH! Great job!!

    Good work, Rusty! We’re glad you didn’t see anything down there that you decided you needed to take a flying leap off the bridge to go get! Hey, do you think if you would have jumped off the bridge that the other Sibes would have followed? 🙂

    The Momster says she could use a good crew of traffic reporters here. So glad you were only “seeing” those skunks.

    Oh wait – there are bears?!

    Oh no!!

  15. Ruth on February 17, 2011 at 8:46 am

    No bears? Oh, that’s good!

  16. Houndstooth on February 17, 2011 at 8:17 am

    Rusty is such a versatile guy! I don’t believe that there’s any job he can’t do. Will he be covering the controversy over why The Herd doesn’t get pizza bones soon? 😛

  17. Pepsi on February 17, 2011 at 8:05 am

    Way to go, Rusty. You’re a dog full of talents!

    Woofs,

    That was too cute! Must keep a lookout for turkeys, bears, skunks etc.!!

  23. Stella on February 17, 2011 at 1:11 am

    Rusty does the traffic thing very well. He is spreading his walking skills among one of the younger Sibes in Overland Park,too. Be sure and check out Ciara’s walk today with her Mom!

    Cheers,
    Stella

    You are doing an excellent job Rusty! Just watch out for all those critters!
