Sorry, I can't come to work today]
(Best excuse yet!)Naubinway, MI, is about 40 miles west of the Mackinaw bridge in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan .
I cannot come in to work today.
There was a moose born on my front lawn and the Momma won't let me out of the house!!!!
Baby Moose 12 Hours old Born in the middle of downtown Naubinway, Michigan
In my 33 years in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, I have never seen a new-born baby moose.
The mother picked a small, quiet neighborhood, and had her baby in a front yard just off of US 2, 5:30 AM. Allen and I were out bike riding when we came upon the pair. The lady across the street from this house told us she saw it being born. We saw them at 5:30 PM. So the little one was 12 hours old.
What an awesome place we live in to see such a sight.
Makes it really tough to use your front door!
