Happy Independence Day! We have certainly had a couple of exciting days up here lately. Two days ago, a giant spaceship appeared out of the clouds directly above our lodge, so who knows what's up with that. We started watching the "news" to see if this was going on anywhere else. Turns out, these spaceships have also been seen over the major photogenic monuments of the world such as Los Angeles, The Washington Memorial (White House?), and the Taj Mahal.
Thank goodness we had a few guests here at the lodge to help. An MIT graduate (who also helped with the Jurassic Park investigation 22 years ago) discovered a hidden spaceship transmission while using the park radios, so apparently they are aliens or something.
After asking around among the guests for a doctor or perhaps an air force pilot for assistance, we found a young man from west Philadelphia, born and raised, who volunteered to help.
We also found Bill Pullman (Casper, 1995).
This morning, our three unlikely "heroes" formed a plan to upload a virus into the main spaceship in outer space to take down the smaller ship's shields so that all the Cousin Eddies around the world could fly inside them and destroy them with sciences and maths.
Thankfully, the weather cleared up for about an hour this morning so they could fly. Now the alien peril is no more.
"Perhaps its fate that today is the 4th of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom, not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution -- but from annihilation... from aliens" -Bill Pullman (Casper, 1995)
Yesterday's high was 59 degrees and the low was 51. We received one inch of rain and it is still coming down now. It is only 55 degrees at this moment, so pack something warm to wear up top! Everyone have a great Fourth of July!
Also, we recommend that you watch the movie Independence Day to celebrate today.

Yeah, it doesn't sound like Teguila to me either! Sounds like somebody has indulged in a little "vegetation" this 4th of July! Actually saw about 5 minutes of that movie today. I'm glad you all up top are having some "fun" today. I bet it's hard to miss all the celebrations down below! Have a good night!
