I was just outside chatting with my neighbor from across the street and she told me that they had a bear in their garage last night about 1:30 going through their trash. They didn't realize they'd left the garage door open and the bear was having a grand time. The sheriff came and set off a couple of firecrackers to scare the bear away. Of course Kenai, my savage guard dog, and I slept through the entire event. Maybe I won't go hiking today after all.
