Second Day Of Continuous Rain


It Rained off and on most of the night and has rained all day. They say we’ve had somewhere between 4-6” of rain in this area in the last 48 hours. Bridges are being washed out and there are road closures in several counties in the area. We were also under a tornado warning this evening until 6pm. Boy has it come down here in Lone star.The two systems are coming from the south and seemed to stall over Northeast Texas. All this rain however has kept our temperatures in the lower 70’s.


This afternoon Sandy and I watched the country squirrels try to figure out how to get in our bird feeders. Talk about a sight they were setting on top of the feeders or hanging from all fours off the bottom and never succeeded in getting them opened.  I tried to get pictures but they just wouldn’t be still for the camera.I call them country squirrels as unlike the city squirrels at Sandy’s sister Pam’s home in Longview those city squirrels play havoc with their feeders.

BIL James picked up a 200amp meter pole today and it won’t be long before we will have the local electrical company run electricity to his property. We will tie off on that and have our on meter at our site. We plan to bury the line so there won’t be any overhead lines to worry about falling tree limbs taking them down. With all the rain we’ve had it will be a while before we can check this off our to do list.

Until next time….MtnAire Travlers.

  1. Oh my gosh...this is just too funny! When we set up our feeders here in Pine Mountain (country) the squirrels could not for their lives figure out how to get to the bird food. Just like your story...they tried everything they knew. I remarked to Mike that our "city" squirrels were more streetwise and could figure it out. I could NEVER keep them out.
    I told him there was a difference in a city squirrel and a country squirrel but he just smiled at me.
    Now you have confirmed I was right!!

    Take care and enjoy the squirrel show!!
