The weather remains a mix of all seasons. On Friday, we had a warm day that hardly required a sweater. Today, it feels like February again and there may be a rainy snow mix at the start of the work week. The high winds that have been wreaking havoc around us the last couple of days toppled our nation's live Christmas Tree. It had stood on the Ellipse since 1978, and had been through five different presidencies in its time. Thankfully here, we've not lost our power and had no damage to any of our trees, other than a few small branches.
This morning, it was our cat, CC's turn to go to the vet. She was one year past her yearly exam and needed a rabies vaccine. My thought to get her to the vet was put on the front burner when a couple of nights ago, she was outside growling at something. This afternoon, I did spot this visitor. Although it's February and it's a skunks-month for finding romance, I'm hopeful that it will want to be alone and not stay around--As you know, nothing says I want to be alone quite like an atomized sulfur cloud does!
The dogs however don't know that. They are still rolling on the exact spot where the dead mole was picked up 3 days ago. Given the choice of their rolling on the spot where there was a mole or meeting the skunk, it's an easy choice to make--At least for me!
