This squirrel comes to the feeder every day and every time I see this squirrel ... I wonder.  What the heck happened to its tail??  All the fluff is gone.  The fluffless remainder is healing but I do keep wondering .. What the heck happened?

How much does 2 feet of snow weigh?

New storms coming in today, Tuesday, and another possible on Thursday that was described as "disturbing" by the weatherman.  Pawpa is outside raking off the garage roof.  We were unable to buy a roof rake at any of our nearby stores so Pawpa is using a V-E-R-Y old rake with wooden tines.  It's working which is GOOD!  The tines keep falling out which is BAD so Pawpa bought dowels, cut them to size, and has to keep gluing them so he can use it.

(We've ordered a roof rake online but it won't be delivered until NEXT week after it snows again.)

Ice Dams

Pawpa had to go back up the ladder to chop more ice off the roof.  Mom wants to make "Oven Fried Chicken" for supper but her "chicken pan" is over on the shelf catching leaks from the roof above the bay window.  We've run out of pans to catch the leaks.  We've got lots of pots left but they don't line up as well.

Can I come out yet?

This enterprising squirrel decided that this empty birdhouse was just right for a winter home.  A bit of chewing at the opening made it just right.
