Yep, the raccoon guys were back overnighth from Tuesady to Wednesday AM. Here was the feeder back on the ground. Mum ended up leaving it there until Thursday afternoon. She had to go day hunting, then to the bored of the library meeting, then a social time with her other bored of the library memebers. By the time she got home it was late, dark and ready to storm. She wasn't going to out for it in the storm.
The raccoons get at it by climbing the tree, so even if mum hung it higher, which there isn't a good place to do that. Those bandits would get at it anyway. Also if she takes it in overnight, then the early morning feeding birdies wouldn't have anything to eat. Mum says it is about time for these birdies to commute back south, so then we can take the feeder in for the season.
We had lots of boomer storms on Wednesday night and Thursday early AM. We aren't scared of the boomers but mum sure didn't sleep well. The noisy, loud weather radio kept going off with warnings, lots of flashy lights from outside. She looked all bad and puffy eyed this morning, but went off to day hunt like a good person should.
Tonight when she came home she went to look at the rain measuring thing. 4.5 inches of rain overnight. That is lots and that means the skeeters will continue to be bad.
Hope everyone has a good weekend. We will be napping, catching up on lost naps, mum too!
