Meet Baby Irene

Aside from a ton of leaves and some sticks and branches, the main damage from the storm consisted of a pair of baby squirrels who fell from their nest high up in a tree in our front yard. One did not make it, but the other we named Irene and quickly took up to Second Chance Wildlife Center in Gaithersburg. There was practically a line out the door of people bringing in baby squirrels.

All I can say is that I am glad there is such a thing as Second Chance, because I would have no idea how to take care of a baby squirrel, especially with the power out and no Internet for doing research.


PS: The power came up late this morning, about nine hours after it went off.
