Q: what do you get when you add high winds to a late summer day?

A: baby squirrels blown out of their nest.

We’ve got two here that were brought to us yesterday. They’re just now opening their eyes, so they are probably 5 or 6 weeks old. I know squirrels are tree rats. I know they aren’t threatened or endangered. I know that there are a host of animals that could use the extra protein. But let’s face it. Baby squirrels are adorable.

Pictures later.

    (just come on in and open the fridge)
