zweelum: (wtf)
There was a skunk in my front yard.

...

WTF.

Look, I know the trailer court backs up to the forest, but nonetheless, it is a trailer court. It's not the kind of place where you're going to see deer running about. Hell, I'm lucky if lightning bugs drift into the yard. So what is a skunk doing there?

At first I couldn't tell what it was, since it was dark, and I could only see the white stripe and hear a snuffling under the bird feeder. I think this was a particularly unobservant skunk, since it didn't notice when I opened the door and then closed the door and then opened the door and then turned a flashlight on it until it looked up into the light. Then it turned and waddled away as fast as it could.

I hope it comes back, actually. Skunks are sweet little things. They won't spray you if you leave them any other option. And it's a bit more interesting than the birds.


EDIT: And then it rained a lot. Hope the poor thing hasn't drowned.
