Just the other day, right before we had a storm of thunder and lightning, I saw a squirrel run up a light pole, jump up and down on top for a few seconds and then speedily come running down the other side. This all happened in a span of time less than 30 seconds in total. It was kind of unusual as I've never seen a squirrel do that before.
squirrels are suicidal, didn't you know? Ever seen how after they run in front of your car they actually turn round and come back?
Sounds like that one was daring the gods to strike him down
