With this nasty weather, I don't think we have to worry about Jason breaking quarantine and running back to the Farm Colonies. #zompocalypse

There's a zombie out in the street. It's just beyond my defensive wall. We can see it clearly from my second floor. #zompocalypse

09:14 AM #
The zombie is very still now, just swaying listlessly in place. When we first noticed it, it was after something in a tree across the road.

09:17 AM #
The zombie could have been interested in a squirrel that ran up the tree and is now out of sight, or maybe there was a bird that flew away.

09:20 AM #
Now, with nothing to capture the thing's attention, the zombie is just standing there at the end of a meandering trail in the snow.

09:55 AM #
The zombie is still out there. With no idea we're near, it has slowly spun in place over the last half hour or so. Interesting behavior...

The thing is impervious to the cold. The black "blood" in zombies' veins must be one heck of an anti-freeze. #zombie #zombies #zompocalypse

10:34 AM #
The zombie has completed another slow-speed spin. I guess it's hunting.

10:36 AM #
Normally, I'd use my bow and take out the damned thing, but I'd just waste arrows lost in the snow in all this wind. #zombie #zombies

10:40 AM #
Using a gun, of course, is not a good idea here. I'd attract every zombie within earshot to my home. So we're waiting, watching.

11:43 AM #
The zombie stopped spinning awhile ago. Now it's facing to the south, the direction it was heading before. Hmmm. Back on a course?

11:46 AM #
One thing's for sure: Its path wasn't determined by looking back the way it came and deciding to carry on--the blowing snow erased the trail

11:54 AM #
The zombie has started moving again. Slowly, not very smoothly, it is following the road to the south towards the turn in the river.

01:15 PM #
The zombie has been out of sight for awhile. It didn't seem to be moving with much purpose. We'll keep an eye out to see if it comes back.

@JonHylton Do you have any theories?

08:28 PM #
@paulmitchell I got a blank message from you. Did you mean to message me? Sometimes The Anomaly doesn't let everything through.

@JonHylton It would have to be quite a disguise. If it comes back, we will look at it carefully with an eye to that.
