On Tuesday while my power was out, I was sitting out in the backyard enjoying the birdies chirping and trying to get pictures of them eating the birdseed I had put out (on the ground) a couple of days before. While sitting quietly I noticed some rustling in the grass next to the bird seeds and prepared my camera to get a picture of the "bird".....here is what I saw.....
After he was done having a snack he ran off down the driveway. We have seen him around our yard a couple more times since Tuesday. So I have cleaned up all the bird seed and will have to get a bird feeder to hang up off the ground and hope this stupid rat goes and finds a new place to feast.
Here is what I was really trying to take a picture of, sweet little birdies.
At about noon on Tuesday 6/9/09 my power went out and stayed out until about 2am. We found out during the day of the outage it was due to a broken power pole on Third East. Of course I had to get pictures of it. Here is a bit of the broken pole still connected to the power wires just dangling after they cut the rest away.
Power guys working on the pole.
Here is the pile of the power pole pieces after they took it down.
