It's a good year for squirrels. By that I mean the trees are dropping nuts aplenty and the squirrels are bigger and more numerous than I've ever seen them.
Also, the squirrels seem to have figured out how to dodge cars - less squirrel pelts on the road.
Today I noticed a particularly large squirrel today climbing the big oak tree in the front yard. He had a mouth full of nuts and was grabbing more and was so heavy that the branch he was on nearly touched the ground.
I also noticed around the lawn a bunch of acorns. Clearly the squirrels had a lot of work to do to get that mess cleaned up.
