As I was fueling up the snowblower, I heard a diesel truck idling at the bottom of our driveway. People sometimes come up the long, narrow, hilly driveway in error, and get stuck trying to back out, so I went out to check.
There were two guys outside of a big red Dodge 3/4-ton crewcab. One appeared to be taking pictures of the driveway, the back of my shop, boats and vehicle. When they saw me coming, they ran to the vehicle, which was already turned around, and quickly left.
It was about 12:15 p.m.
A while later, I read a comment at PA (and a couple of emails from friends, alerting me to it) that states this:
Uh Oh Phil...The Urine of Sea has got you in their sights. Saw this comment today:
Can we get his address and post it on the web....along with a picture of him, his house, and the car he drives?

Phil, you know better than to poke "The Crazies"(hey, isn't that a movie coming out soon?)
Here is the link:
Apparently, they have taken down that comment. Note the time the comment had been posted. I don't know what time zone they get tagged at, but C4P certainly isn't an Alaskan blog.
Anyway, earlier in the morning, I had taken a number of pictures of the fresh snow: Update - 5:10 p.m: Two things. First of all, thanks for the supportive comments and emails. Apparently C4P did not pull the threatening comment that came before the guys taking pictures of things on my property. Here's a screenshot of the comment posted there, sent to me by Mel:
Secondly, when I came upon these two guys, they were not on our property, just right next to it, in the cul-de-sac. It is not illegal to photograph somebody's house or property, so I don't see what reason I have for a complaint to law enforcement. Please remember, I worked in law enforcement and public safety for over 13 years and have a fairly well-trained bodyguard when I need him.
annoymouse, if you are reading:
I hadn't heard what had been done to you and yours by Palinbots out here:
Phill, that guy you call annoymouse had some pretty rough stuff done to their house by a person living in Wasilla.
Apparently some Palin lover saw the sign on top of his woodshed and made a visit.
Charges were filed about this last fall, distruction of personal property and assalt. Guilty and Guilty. Now annoymouse is going after damage costs. Dead show dog and all. The family is in grief over the loss. Has been for about 5-6 months.
Please accept my sympathy and condolences!
