I don't know Mike, it's been a couple of weeks since I've been able to find it. You'd think that since Robert's moved down there, I'd get to come more, but it hasn't worked out that way.

That's a cotton rat...Beachmice are about 10 grams, The beachmice are not the problem, I don't agree on the $600,000 study funded by the State to prove the fourlane will not jeopardize the species. Many private traffic consultants suggest the fourlaneing is not justified. Getting on the Key can be improved by extending the right turn lane to Innerarity and have a no left turn at the light and direct the tourists that want to back track on Gulf BEach Hwy to turn left past the McDonalds. Traffic does not back up past the Burger King at all, once you get through the light it's smooth sailing till the dreaded Bama. Unfortunately, that clog is mostly caused by Gulf Shores/Orange Bch tourists wanting a $20 tee shirt and $6 Michelob ultra. That's evidenced by the back up to the Ono Bridge quite often in the summer. No walkovers are proposed they will be at grade flashing signalization. Perdido Key historically is a cash cow for escambia co. lots of taxes come in and little is spent on improvements. That is changing with the snorkle reef, new beach access acquisition, pending pedestrian paths from Theo Barrs to the Bama. Oh yea a Master Plan too...I don't want to start in on that. I think they will reduce the speed limit and attempt to calm the vehicles that are speeding through. We'll see.....

Just wondering...

During Hurricane Ivan I don't think there was one square inch of Perdido Key (FL or AL side) that was not underwater. Yet the beach mouse survived. How? Could it be that it had human built structures in which to seek sanctuary during the storm?

No, Some university, I think in Auburn came in and rounded up some more mice just before Ivan hit. They already had some in a captive breeding program. So they "preserved" the species. And can now release more into the habitat.
The mouse tunnels were forced upon the county by Federal Fish and Wildlife Nazi's.
FWS classifies the beach mouse at some level of threatened species.
But not so threatened that FWS refuses to take extortion money from the county, state and local residents in order to allow development where the aforementioned desire. $$ talk, no $$ walk.
