Snow then floods!

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

Now our snow is melting slowly, we now have ice and rain, two inches of rain,,, flood warnings out now, more rain to come tonight. January in Michigan.. Two miles from Lake Huron.. not good news.. teh fog is so thick we can barely see the house across the street(fifty feet)

Poor little guys are out eating up our seeds and suet. A family of squirrels at the bottom of my feeder(I made it squirrel proof) and birds covering both sides of it..
DD said that this morning a squirrel had the audacity to attempt to eat off a suet basket I have about one foot from the birdhouse hanging in my red maple tree in the front yard. Every small bird around dive-bombed this guy until he could not stand it and he jumped out of the tree.
Since my feeder is absolutely squirrel-proof(I have never had one on it in eleven years) they are looking long and hard for seeds that fall on the ground after the birds have their fill.

    I might 'accidently' drop some seed as I am filling the feeder. Squirrels need to eat, too!

    Poor Squirrels, I am the weird one. I feed the crows, i have watched them for so long they amaze me. The neighbours were talking about dogs in the neighbourhood trashing the garbage bags and making a mess. I watched as the crows approached a bag, ripped it open and they dragged out a PIZZA box. They bit every piece of cheese on the lid.
    DH roared at their antics.
    I do not feed birds there are too many cats in this neighbourhood they are bird catchers not mousers. We had cats that caught mice when I was little but I liked mice too.
    We had some very fluffy snow I actually used my MICHIGAN scoop,my trusty tool and did not need the blower. It took me a while. It was 32 degrees and no wind so it was a perfect winter day. NOW we are getting Freezing rain.
    Warm air from the south. MT Washington was 32 degrees at the summit.
    Arctic blast from Canada and we get freezing rain. we have no reason to go out except it is DH Birthday . HUGS Pat in Maine. Stay DRY I hope HUGS Pat emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Nothing more beautiful than viewing nature in your own yard.

    Squirrels tried to get into our attic last fall. My husband "squirrel-proofed" the hole they started and they seem to have moved on. But I got my husband a t-shirt for Christmas that says, "I have reason to believe the squirrels are mocking me." In his case I think it might be true...
