Well, if I lived in the country... I currently live in the 'burbs and can look out the window to see squirrels. Haven't seen any today.

Here in SW Florida you can tell it's Autumn when you see more cars with out of state plates than Florida plates. Season is upon us

And when you see those out of state plates, you drop back another couple of car lengths. Drivers from other places drive differently. I always dropped back when I lived there, and finally one of them did it - from the extreme right lane made a left hand turn at a 4 lane intersection.

A good thing, though, is that your neighbors who work in the hospitality industry are making more money.

The out of state plates here are just as erratic...for some reason they keep staring up at the mountains...of course, we are doing that, too!!!

Its currently -3C and not going to warm up much past freezing today. Temps are supposed to start dropping over this week. I filled both feeders yesterday and both are nearly empty today. Hungry little birdies! I should probably put out a suet ball.
Thats cold, Alix there is an English saying re birds, Tits like coconuts, sparrows like worms

Still haven't seen any squirrels. Of course I have only been looking out the window on occasion. I'm worried that one of my neighbours has poisoned them all. I have my DH looking for them too, now.

My favourite neighbour is still seeing squirrels. She tells me they party in her yard at 06h30 and 16h00 on a daily basis. I am very pleased. So, I guess you guys are out of luck.

<happy dance> It's snowing! <happy dance>

It's melting, but it's coming down white and the mountains have a nice icing!
