Battling Nature - part 1...

Welcome to the battle between nature and the Close family. We've been waging a battle with raccoons who have decided that our deck is their own personal toilet. Every morning a new deposit. Apparently they pick a place and that's where everyone goes. Yuch. So, I had an idea yesterday, I sprinkled the latest 'gifts' with cayenne pepper. I figured if they couldn't smell it, maybe they wouldn't do it. But, unbeknownst to me, raccoons have a direct line to a higher power and last night it rained and thundered and stormed and washed all my cayenne pepper away and there was a new gift. Raccoons 1, Closes 0. Stay tuned for the battle of the Asian Beetles.
