Squirrel Predictions


A squirrel and his nuts.
This is his favorite place to perch.
 I've heard that if they have a bushy tail, we are in for a cold winter.  If that's true, we will be having a mild one. But, look at how furry his toes are. Wonder what that means? Leg warmers and furry toes....maybe snow?

Wishing and Hoping,

Laurie

    1. Thanks, Linda! I bet your squirrels have big ole fat tails! Ha! Probably big enough for a small fur coat.

    1. Hi Sarah, thanks for visiting my blog. That sure is a nice compliment coming from one who takes gorgeous photos. I'm not sure if the bushy squirrel tail is true or not, but it makes sense to me. Our horses will grow a thicker coat for winter, so maybe there's something to it.

  5. We had a squirrel feeder in the backyard of our old house. I could watch them from my kitchen window. That is one of the only things that I miss about living there. The squirrels haven't found our country home, yet :)
    Have a lovely day!
    Connie :)

    1. Connie, I'm sure you'll have squirrels in short order. Just put out some feed...then sit back and wait.

  7. I have heard a lot of wisdom before but must admit, the bushy tailed winter squirrel on is new to me. It makes perfect sense. I did hear earlier in the week, as I remember it was on the Weather Channel, that snow might be heading down here from the east next week, so who knows? I also heard there is a hurricane brewing in the Atlantic and that is just plain crazy to think about in January! Can't wait to find out what those furry feet are about (lol)!

    1. LOL! I bet those furry feet came in handy last night with all that wind we had. I thought for a second it was a tornado. This is some crazy weather....possible snow for the east and a hurricane in the Atlantic. Mother Nature is have a fit! But to my dismay, the snow will stay north of us. :(

  9. Great capture with the camera - I love squirrels...my dad, not so much, as they are so destructive in his yard.

    1. They're as aggravating as the day is long. I'm with your dad on that one. But, they sure are photogenic.
