We had an unexpected visitor! An opossum was hiding under the car. It is quite by luck that we saw her. She hissed at us when we bent over to look at her. She must have come looking for a warm place to hide that offered some shelter. It is quite surprising to find a nocturnal animal in early in the evening. It gets dark by 4:30 pm this time of year, so the animal doesn't know the difference. Good thing Snickers didn't notice her. We left her alone and when we returned, she had decided her hiding place wasn't so good after all. Check out the opossum link for more information on this unusual creature.
