It's Chuck Time

The wildlife inventory continues to grow this summer. I've been here almost 28 years and have never seen a woodchuck in my yard. So, Chuck joins the red squirrel on the first-time list this year.

Technically, I guess he's Blake's chuck... as it seems he's vacationing under his shed. With the Chipmunk and Rabbit Families already living there, the shed must have gone condo.

Fairport Hail Storm - July 21, 2010


I was at a client's house in Fairport this afternoon, just ready to leave when the rain started, then the wind gusts, bringing sheets of rain and hail. We decided I should wait a few minutes for the storm to pass.

I'm so glad I did - we never get weather this cool in Palmyra. This video was taken on my HTC Droid Incredible in HD. I just wish I'd thought to start recording sooner!

The hail flew all the way to the back of the garage. Hope this video is sufficient evidence for my insurance company. All in all, a great afternoon!
