...back in 2006 when I saw a white squirrel in Fairfield and she knocked my socks off. I didn't know such beauty existed. I was on my way to work one Sunday morning very early, and a white squirrel crossed my path. I thought it was God speaking to me directly and so I wrote an Advent sermon about the miracle of white squirrels and Advent. So me and white squirrels have a long history. Well, just this week I saw another white squirrel frolicking in my backyard a ye old parsonage in Orange. I was able to grab my camera and get fairly close. This one is NOT an albino. I quote myself below (-8
"And, oh yes. For the scientists, skeptics, and scoffers among you, there is a scientific explanation for white squirrels....what I learned was if a white squirrel has the traditional black eyes then he is a genetic mutation of the common gray squirrel. If a white squirrel has pink eyes then he is albino. So says the Albino Squirrel Preservation Society of the University of Texas.
White squirrels are miracles of the most natural kind.
