Hail storm! Turn up the sound on the video. I was filming the hail storm when I saw something doing circles on the wall.
You can tell when I realize what it was. Poor thing was drenched and freaked out - he eventually settled under the stone bench near me.
That said, he had a number of opportunities to hide out in other places but rejected all of them. It's hard to explain to a prairie dog that
stopping under the hammock is a good idea. or under the lilac bus. or under the tree. Mike thought it was because he was seeking closed-in shelter.
