Sunday morning and the weather here has gone from cold and snowy to balmy and rainy. All that means is that the squirrels are back out and feeding on the corn and nuts that the neighbor scatters for them.
Ms. Ellie (above) is not happy about this situation since it is also muddy and she and Scott are restricted to the house. Scott is beside himself with frustration. They both have spent the better part of an hour watching intently as the corn buffet continues about 20 feet from them. There are four or five squirrels causing this problem.
The main result will be that when Scott goes out on a leash the tree will likely drown from being marked. And to show his true frustration he will likely mark the neighbors doorstep in revenge.
