Bundle Up

If only I had a wider tail…

If the forecasts are correct (LOL, says the former meteorology student), by the time this post goes live, we’ll be getting our first accumulating snow of the year in my area.  And as usual, the snow will be followed up by an arctic blast.  This little guy I met at the park on Wednesday seems to be preparing for the winter weather.  That’s a nifty use of his tail to shield his back from the cold… and he even has some extra length for that super cool mohawk style.

He may not seem very happy about it, but this week’s Saturday Squirrel is ready to face the elements anyway!

Have a great weekend everyone!

    Poor little guys. I don’t know how any of them survive these temperatures.

    lucky he has that tail!

  3. Yep- we’re expecting a pile of snow and icy stuff this weekend too…..Heading out shortly for the dreaded “snowmageddon” grocery run. I hope this little squirrel guy has plenty of snacks stashed away in his treehouse!

    We’ve put out more seed and acorns for our bushy-tailed friends.

  5. Stay warm and cozy and ‘enjoy’ the snow that should have fallen in Denver but didn’t.

    It’s too f!@#ing cold. It’s Texas. It’s wrong. But you and ES stay bundled.

  7. The reason that many of those adorable critters don’t freeze is right there in your blog title. NEST. They aren’t carrying all those dead and dying leaves, pine cones, grass and so forth up that tree and stuffin’ it in a wee hole for nothing. Animals ain’t stupid. I suspect the tail is just an additional layer of warmth. So our friend pictured above will probably be chillier than his thicker tailed peers….

    It’s 70 and overcast here.

  9. I don’t know how these little ones survive the cold temperatures. We get extreme cold (-40C) in the subarctic and they make it through here too.

    He knows what’s coming. Trust the squirrels!

    It looks like he’s styling a very cool Mohawk! And we’re supposed to get 20 cm of snow by tomorrow night–what fun! (she said sarcastically)

    I can’t believe we got snow before you did! Your little guy will probably endure the arctic air better than my squirrels did, even with that rather fluff-deficient tail. I didn’t see much of them during the week we had snow on the ground and, when they did visit the deck, they clung to the deck rail. Their behavior reminded me of when we used to play “the floor is made of lava” when we were kids. lol
