The woodchuck is finally not fighting me over the feed barrels. I think I'll leave the barricade up, but take the gas container off the lid. Today there's a real chill in the air. And the light is so much less than it was. I'm not seeing woodchucks around in general, so I think we've found places to settle into and stopped trying to eat everything in sight. The rats, of course, are still going strong. Weatherdude continues to gas them every other weekend or so.
The cats think we've had enough rain. Another 1.2 inches yesterday. There's water in the pond again. The grass is still growing and we're still mowing whenever it stops raining long enough for the grass to dry out.
Both Volvos ran rough after we came home from Tucson. Very odd. Weatherdude's had a bad ignition coil. Chances are that mine does too. Which is about as odd as anything can get that's just a coincidence. Once again, very glad to have a 3rd car which has yet to develop problems.
