Post 388: “Snow, snow go aw…! Oh! You did!”

It started to snow late yesterday afternoon. It looked like the real deal, sled weather, so to speak.

It was falling hard and fast. The boys were wound up, thanks to the low pressure system associated with the storm, and Andy, who usually is curious about the outside but reluctant to get too close to that invisible barrier that separates the safety of “home” from the unknown of “outside”, actually looked like he wanted to take a walk outside.

Yesterday afternoon, Andy looked like he might take a walk outside. He was excited by the snow.

Andy had to check for snow, too, this morning when we looked outside.

When we got out of bed this morning, I expected to find some drifts or something to make a dramatic statement about how much snow we had: It barely left evidence it’d been on the ground. Aw!

Dougy, a bit ruffled from sleep, actually didn't want to look outside. He's my Adventure Kitty, so it surprised me that he stood back.

Well, we checked it out. Nothing left to do but eat and sleep. Cats have their priorities, too. Dougy and I would play a bit later, but Andy chose to wait till I got on the computer to hop up on the desk for a snooze.

My sleepy boy, Andy!

My sleepy boy, Andy!

The sun’s up. I think I’ll clean the boy’s water fountain and replace the filter this morning.

  1. Oh, Dear God, I am sooo over snow. We had 3 days of nice weather and now tornadoes are in the forecast for some of our neighboring suburbs! (whines) Will summer never come??

    • It was a scant amount, but enough to stick on my car, for example. It looked like it had rained during the night, too.

      Yeah, you did get more than your share of Winter this year, didn’t you?

      I hope this was our last burst of snow, but I remember seeing snowflakes on July 4th one cool year! Of course, they melted before they landed, but they were real flakes of snow, something I’d never seen in Summer before or since!
