Re: Selby > now wind, temps, possums


There's a bit of a breeze out there, but not bad.  Weekend hasn't been as
nice as originally forecast.  Pretty grey out.  Temps not as high as yours.
Maybe mid40s to 50, but going back down. Some nights will be in teens this
week.

I've had a possum come around here at nights for years.  Doesn't seem to
really bother anything and the cats know enough to stay away from him.
Except, maybe the new one, Slugger.  I saw him try to take on a raccoon the
other night.  Pretty stupid; I had to step in.  The other 4 steer clear of
raccoons.
