Tuesday morning was a cold, wet and nasty one at Nest HQ… and you would think the squirrels would have had enough sense to just stay in their rain shelters and watch TV or something. But we have a hardy bunch of furry dudes around these parts, and I was surprised to see it was almost business as usual for my sciurine pals despite the bad weather. This squirrel in particular gave the fuzzy middle finger to Mother Nature and spent a good deal of time basking on this branch right out in the middle of the pouring rain!
You gotta hand it to this guy for braving the elements like this. I wouldn’t even walk the necessary mile to the polling place in this dreary weather… and my squirrels were no doubt mocking me for letting a little chilly precipitation keep me from doing my Stivic duty.
For having the courage to brave pneumonia when the gales of November came early, and for continuing to just be a squirrel despite getting a soaking socked to him, we salute our foul weather friend here as this week’s Saturday Squirrel. He’s not about to let a little rain dampen his spirits… even if it is going to dampen his nice, furry coat…
Hope you all have a much drier weekend!
