Bears have been active at my nearest neighbors' house, but so far not at mine. They are getting ready for hibernation, searching out sources of food, and this includes breaking into houses, sheds, and cars.
The weather is expected to be warm for several weeks, so the bears are not likely to go into hibernation soon.
This is what our main highway looks like to the east of me. The highway department is digging out the riverbanks to put in reinforcing riprap and hopefully protect the highway from washing out in big flood events. This part of it should be completed by March 2018.
