This morning as I was driving in to work (southbound on the Guide Meridian, for locals), as I was in the outskirts of Bellingham, a deer ran across the road right in front of my car. I had to tap the brakes to avoid him (her? no antlers). That's the third time I've seen a deer in Bellingham. The other two times were well within city limits, once by Barkley Village (before the movie theaters were built) and once on Orleans, between Alabama and Sunset. That time, the deer was grazing on someone's front yard.
