Carrots from the Sky Tuesday

Thousands of pounds of carrots and sweet potatoes are falling from the sky in Australia, air-dropped to help feed the Brush-tailed Rock wallabies whose habitats have been devastated by massive brushfires.

The wallabies, agile marsupials that use their furred tails for balance while climbing trees and vertical rocks, tend to survive fires. But their vegetation is often destroyed, according to the New South Wales government, which on Sunday announced it was coordinating helicopter drops in the state as part of recovery efforts. New South Wales Environment Minister Matt Kean shared photos of the hungry marsupials on Twitter:

    Drove to the Mason Urgent Care this morning and got my blood drawn. Roads were perfect, the parking lot was perfect. I’m glad I waited an extra day before venturing out.

    I also gassed up my Rav4. I was down to a quarter of a tank, which was a full tank when my eyes stop me from driving in December. The kids usually use my car to ferry me around.

    I usually fill up on a half tank, that way I never have to stop for gas before I have to go anywhere.

    Not looking forward to going out to shovel while the snow is still falling.
