The sun was out. The clouds were gone. But the wind was a force to be reckoned with. With weather forecasts predicting the winds to be in the range of 14 mph to 34 mph today, the wind could be heard all throughout the Chimp House.
When I gave the Group of 7 access to Young’s Hill, there were only a few takers to initially go out. Jamie and Foxie were the first to go out and conduct a patrol around their outdoor enclosure. As they came around to the last stretch of their patrol, both Jamie and Foxie were racing toward the Greenhouse.
Judging by Foxie’s sneer, she was not a fan of the wind and just wanted the patrol to be over with.
Missy initially watched as Jamie and Foxie began their patrol, but seemed to be at a crossroads on whether to join them or not.
But Missy is Missy, and without warning, shot out of the raceway onto Young’s Hill. So fast I was only able to lift the camera and get a somewhat blurry photo of her racing to catch up with Jamie and Foxie.
But the wind was too much for Annie. She stayed in the doorway between the Greenhouse and Young’s Hill and watched as Missy charged up the Hill.
Burrito took no time at all to make his decision: Stay in the Greenhouse and let the plexiglass paneling block the wind.
Negra decided to bypass all that. She remained in the Playroom, covered in blankets, basking in the rays of the sun through the window.
On the other side of the Chimp House, Willy B was eager to go into the Chute. He grabbed the best seat in the house so he could watch a train go by and the birds who are starting to return from their winter break.
Let’s hope this isn’t a false Spring so more outdoor adventures could be had.
