I've been trying to figure out just what it is with chipmunks. They run really fast but it still takes them forever to cross the road. Plus, there are those intermittent pauses en route -- which appear more to be randomly driven by a tensioned-string-trolley contraption than by an animal's free will.

I like the grassy areas in business parks that aren't watered in the summer because they're crunchy brown and have tufts of clover and vetch. Aesthetically, they feel more pleasant and green than the watered, fertilized, and chemically-treated lush that grows closer to the constructed appurtenances.

While never the same: chipmunks, the lawn and many other things come back just fine, anyhow.
