Our New "Temporary" Home

Welcome to the world of The Black (Grey) Squirrel and the Teenage Driven "High End" SUV.

There seems to be a strange mutation running a muck here in Westchester County. The grey squirrel ( Sciurus carolinensis ) has decided it prefers to be black. I'm assuming it has based it's decision on the fact that most cars in the area are also the same color, and therefore will not clash with it when run over. (People are crazy here)

Which brings me to my next point. No one should let a 16 year old drive a $50,000 (or higher) car to school. It's just not right people. I don't care how good their grades are, teenagers don't know how to drive.

For those of you who can't tell from the picture, that would be an Acura SUV parked behind a Lexus SUV out side the local high school. There were also quite a number of Volvo's, Audi's, and Mercedes' in the student lot. It makes me want to vomit. Parked in the Teachers lot, were Volkswagen's and Honda's.
