Hope the squirrels are OK

I was just about to post saying that we hadn't seen any squirrels on the neighbours' bird feeders since the flood, but I saw one a moment ago, so I'm hoping that's a good sign and they all managed to hide in the trees and didn't get either blown away or drowned. The weather has gone rather cold since storm Ciara passed, so perhaps they're cuddled up somewhere sheltered? To be honest, as a child I was under the impression that squirrels hibernated, but they clearly don't.

In other news, I have done a couple of hours of video editing and I'm almost at the end of the gold mine video. I'm hoping that the next one will be faster, though to be honest, I don't know what the next one will be. I may do an entirely indoor one, or, if I'm lucky and there's a fine and calm day, I could perhaps do Harlech castle. I can't do anything on a train though because the storm has damaged the lines locally, so it will be at least a week before they're operational again.
