I thought they were supposed to be hibernating or something. But since they are hanging around on my balcony, they are clearly not. Last fall, I let them build a nest on the balcony against Nemo’s wishes — he clearly wanted a meal. Then I found out they chewed through my grill cover. So when I saw them this morning, it gave me a little sliver of pleasure watching them run for their lives away from Nemo. Ah, the little pleasures of life.
