I’ve recently moved into my own, second-story apartment, which includes a north-facing balcony deck that will be in the building’s constant shadow through the winter season. Meaning, when it snows, that snow will never, ever melt.
This morning, I opened the deck door to see if it’s warm enough for me to open the windows (it’s not), and had a small surprise:
So, apparently, I have a friend. A furry friend.
There aren’t any trees close enough for a squirrel to make a leap onto my balcony or my neighbors’ balconies, so I’m a little baffled. I just hope that, when it’s warm again and I have potted herbs and vegetables on my balcony, they don’t get ransacked by a mysterious creature.
