Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
So I was about to drive 45 miles to see a friend and thought I had better check my oil. It was was early morning and I admit to not being fully awake, but I woke up quickly! That's an Opossum under my hood. It was as surprised as I was at the intrusion!
"The word "opossum" is borrowed from the Virginia Algonquian (Powhatan) language, and was first recorded between 1607 and 1611 by the Jamestown colonists John Smith (as "opassom") and William Strachey (as "aposoum"). The word ultimately derives from the Proto-Algonquian word *wa˙p- aʔθemw, meaning "white dog" or "white beast/animal".
They are also commonly called possums, particularly in the Southern United States and Midwest. However, the term "possum" was borrowed into use to describe distantly related Australian marsupials (specifically those of the suborder Phalangeriformes) when Australia became known to Europeans." From Wiki links intact-
But I was able to get the critter out safely. I used a water hose (which just made it growl more) and then went inside and let it climb down on its own.
See you at the airport - I promise to leave the opossum at home.
