What’s Up? – Melange of Things…
Melange of Things…
The Sunday before yesterday, we had another weather alert for a big storm approaching from the West, (it was kind of odd weather alert because at that time, our weather was sunny, bright and almost 80º F) The warning also included that the storm most likely bring possible tornados to our region in Georgia.
When the storm reached our area was in a way more electric and windy but not so much ,rain. The thunder and the flashing of lightening were amazing! Never ending it seemed.
The wind picked up speed and came in strong gusts. One of those gusts of wind made the house shake and we heard noise outside, a patio wrought iron chair had been blown and landed in the lawn. Luckily did not crash against the house. The storm passed over us after a while, but there was no tornado. After a couple of hours, the tornado alert was cleared.
The following day, the temperature dropped considerately in the morning was 40ºF increasing later to sunny and high 70º’s.
The opossum keeps on being a nuisance, It’s raiding the suet mix I set for my birds every night.
I went to the store and bought a metal case for the suet with a chain, attached to another iron contraption to allow only the birds to eat the suet. I hooked it to an iron stand.
The next day, I got a surprise! The whole contraption was gone! Can you believe that? I looked all over my backyard and couldn’t find it!
Added to that, I also have three squirrels that are eating at least half of all seeds!
