Squirrel


No doubt they are pretty much all-terrain critters.

Squirrel


"All-terrain critters" -
Yeah - they are!
My boss went out to try and repair a chimney (brick) -
Major damage (deterioration, lightning, wind? - some or all of the above)
12/12 slope.
He get's up there (roof-hooks, "chicken ladders", etc...)
Looks in the chimney (what's left of it) -
Wham!! - out comes a squirrel!!
(Scared my boss as much as the squirrel!! - he almost went off!!)
The squirrel took off across the ridge (full-tilt, "boogey" - they're fast!!)
The ridge on that house is 2-1/2 to 3 stories up - no trees close by -
jumped off the ridge - landed on the grass - ran across the street and
up a tree!!
As if it was a "walk in the park"!!
Squirrels are interesting!
I was re-siding a house (with my brother - Kane County, Ill.) -
We're sitting on the front stoop - taking a break - eating peanuts -
drinking "Pop" - a squirrel comes down out of a tree - walks over;
and puts it's paws on my boot!
We gave it a bunch of peanuts!
Interesting!!

Squirrel


They cause fires, Jack and will gnaw drywall ceilings and leave holes in them. They will also have babies in the attic and leave droppings all over the place. This, along with urine, can create quite an odor.
