I'm swamped with life right now, so just posting this so everyone knows that section got done, but it's possible that the final numbers and observations won't get posted for a week or two.
- Update: I culled a bunch of my potential observations from that day, in the effort not to duplicate.

Like @merav, I'll only include ones that looked not super old, and like @sea-kangaroo I also started flinging the easily-detachable newt crackers off the road to make things less confusing next time.

Still, there were some in a middle state that may have been recorded already, so before I commit my observations, I'll compare them against the previous week or so and try not to post duplicates.

Also, I did see the request to remove my previous identified duplicates from the project, and will do so as soon as I have time. If it's somehow time-critical to remove them soon, let me know.
- Update: I removed the ones labeled as duplicate.

I think I will start removing the easily removed ones next week. In this weather, I think it really makes sense.
