Two Surprises

First, it rained today and when I looked out the window as the rain ended, the cars were sparkling clean. I'd forgotten that rain can do that. From now on, I hope that a cloudy sky only means clouds, and not yellow dust.
UPDATE: I was wrong. More dust due today, dam' it!

Second, on Arirang TV, I saw a documentary about Korean Water Deer. The show claimed that these deer are the only ones that are attracted to water; I thought moose were a kind of deer. I guess it's how you define deer.
Anyway, the surprise came in seeing these deer. I would have named them, "saber-toothed deer". I found these photos online.

This isn't an April Fool's joke - or, if it is, it's a pretty pervasive one.
