When A Car Becomes A Kitchen Pantry

Your “awe, isn’t that cute. Thank God it wasn’t me” story

Aw, nuts. That’s likely what Hope Wideup thought when her car’s turn signal and windshield wipers wouldn’t work. It’s also what she found later when she opened the hood. “There were thousands in there. They were everywhere,” she said, speculating a chipmunk found its way into her car, which had been sitting idle for several weeks, and used the engine compartment as a storage depot for a trove of black walnuts.

Wideup thinks it all started last fall when a chipmunk snatched a garden glove from her yard. She later found the glove in the engine compartment when she was trying to repair the broken turn signal.

Unable to fix the problem, however, Wideup let the car sit unused for a couple of weeks and then heard a loud revving sound from the engine when she tried to start the vehicle.

That’s when she looked under the hood again and found the walnuts.

I wonder if this is part of the Great Animal Conspiracy?
