Hasn't been a whole lot going on at the feeder!

Last night we had snow, then sleet then about 3 inches of blowing snow. Then about noon the sun came out and melted the snow in the bowl under the feeder, to where there was about 3/4 inch of water in it. I didn't dump it as the birds were drinking from it. About 30 minutes ago, Jumper the squirrel came shinnying out the cable and got onto the squirrel baffle above the feeder. He was out to the edge of it trying to figure out how to get down to the feeder, when he lost his footing and fell butt first into the bowl and soaked his butt good. You have never seen a squirrel move so fast! Running and shaking trying to get dry! I was standing in the window watching him and I thought I was going to be sick, I was laughing so hard. So far he hasn't come back.
