Squirrels and the Economy

The squirrel population in our neighborhood experienced a nice boom during the past few years. While previously we had  6-8 squirrels permanently inhabiting our yard, now we have at least 20!

 I really love watching them playing and searching for nuts in the grass ( well, more like weed).

The apparent two fold increase in the population of our furry friends happens to coincide with the roughly 50% decrease in the motorist traffic in the area, which in turn seems to coincide with the stagnating economy.

Some  say they are quite tasty roasted. ( Just kidding, I cry for days  if I accidentally hit one... gulp.)
