I sure hope this is a snow tire!

sqturday squirrel logoLast week’s storm wasn’t much of an event, particularly from a snow standpoint, but this week’s tempest has been a different story.  It snowed the entire time I was at work last night, and is still snowing now, with around 3 inches of accumulation already and maybe a couple more to come before it ends.  This is a wet, clingy snow that has turned everything that couldn’t seek cover white… and it looks very pretty outside!  Most creatures would stay indoors on a snowy Saturday morning like this, but this little guy just had to get a better look at Mother Nature’s frozen wonder a few minutes ago by climbing up on the tire underneath my neighbor’s boat.  For braving the elements on a day with such pretty scenery, he gets the honor of becoming an instant Saturday Squirrel!

It's worth it to be a Saturday Squirrel on Saturday!

Even us squirrels are prone to a bad hair day now and then.

Don’t stay out in this frigid weather too long, my friend!  Even with that fur coat, you’ll catch pneumonia…

OK, this is ridiculous.  I'll just watch from the window next time...

    Driving in snow sucks.

    • Yeah, I got that joy this morning. And I only came across one yahoo who thought his 4 wheel drive made him invulnerable to sliding in the snow. Luckily, I was still a good distance away from him when he slid about 20 feet sideways trying to get onto Meccas parking lot at normal speed…

    The squirrel looks tired. Or is it the tire looks squirreled?

    We haven’t had any snow here yet, but enough sleet and freezing rain to cause a mess. Of course, by the end of the week it will be 60 degrees again.

    • Yeah, I’ve heard that about the weather in your neck of the woods. Our March snowstorms will be like that, but alas, in December, snow just means we’re not warming back up anytime soon….

    The poor little fellow is looking a bit bedraggled!
    No snow here yet – in fact the temperature has shot up to 13 degrees today, so we don’t even really need the heating on! It’s usually at least close to freezing by now Weird.
