B.C. Sea Monsters!

Ogopogo is back, and there's supposed to be a picture currently being developed! Interesting bit from the story:

...peak season for Ogopogo sightings is from late August to the third week of September.

Hmm. Since Ogopogo usually takes the form of an anomalous wave or wake, could there be something weather-wise going on during this time that generates such things?

Unfortunately, there's still no sign of Cadborosaurus willsi (pictured above left), which used to be seen swimming off my dad's old stomping grounds. And the Times-Colonist story doesn't mention the fact that the actual physical evidence for Caddy, in comparison to other sea/lake monsters, is fairly solid, consisting of a picture of a body pulled from the stomach of a sperm whale.

(...although this website claims that Caddy sightings have taken place right up until present day.)

It doesn't surprize me that the peak season for sighting Ogopogo is during the summer. After all, that's when everyone's on or by the lake. And often drinking alcohal, I might add.

By why should it be late summer? Are the currents stronger? Are families of otters more likely to be swimming in formation than in early summer? Are muskrats more likely to be out on the lake? Do the loons like to create a massive papier mache monster for fun before heading south?

Obviously:
1) Ogopogo exercises in the lake in late summer, then

2) Crawls up to Big White or Silver Star to go down the slopes at night in the winter - I've often seen odd tracks through the woods, clear evidence.

3) Gets tired, crawls back down to the lake, hibernates in the early Spring and summer to rest.

Ogo came out of hiding when he heard that other fossil Dion was in the area selling his green shaft.

Hard to see Ogopogo in winter, isn't it.

I was a new player in Aion, I did not know what is the aion kina. Someone told me that aion online kina is the game gold, he said that I could buy aion kina, but I did not have money, then I played it all my spare time. From then on, I got some aion gold, if I did not continue to play it, I can sell cheap aion kina to anyone who want.
How to get more Anarchy credits. He gave me some Anarchy Online credits, he said that I could buy AO credits, but I did not have money, then I played it all my spare time. From then on, I got some Anarchy gold, if I did not continue to play it, I can sell Anarchy online gold to anyone who want.
