Dougy love, love, loves snow! The forecast for today predicts 9-13 inches (23-33cm) of the stuff – in a blizzard. It will have a sheet of ice under it because the whole weather event began with an early morning rainstorm. Dougy is less enthusiastic about rain. Rain, he notes, is water. So is snow, I tell him. No, it is not! he retorts, and he is sure of that! Silly cat!
I saw that white stuffs melt and it IS water, Dougy! Don’t let the white spareness fool you into thinking it’s not. Tee hee hee.
I hope he pays attention to you, Valentine!
but I thought you don’t let them outside Doug? How would he know he loves snow?
We are finally done with snow here, I think. April can throw a surprise or two, though!
Dougy looks very sweet in that photo!
Ugh! First a sheet of ice all over everything, then snow. Take care, Doug! Don’t go outside if you can avoid it.
Fortunately, I have no reason to go anywhere till Thursday at 9:30 AM, and the snow should be cleared by then, or, at least, enough so I can get places.
He is right – such a beauty ! : )
I always open the door during storms so the kitty boys can see the snow. Andy eats it and Dougy wants to sniff it.
He is not silly; he just wants what he likes, and who cares what humans call it! But again, BLIZZARD in the middle of March?!!
Yes, and they aren’t unusual. My birthday is the 22nd of Matrch, and it seems like one out of three years or more there is a blizzard on my birthday. This one’s just early. A May snowe storm isn’t that unusal either, though they tend to be light. https://youtu.be/9ArtHdwVnDg
And you enjoy living in such a climate? Brrr!
You need to get them a sled and fasten a carrier to it, so you can take them for rides!
Actually, that sounds like fuin! Only improvem,ent on that would be that it was big enough for me, toop, and someone else could pull us!
doodz…..knot de “S” werd !!!! 🙂 ♥♥
Yes, and tons ofg it! It’s still blowing outside, and drifting to beat the band!
Good Lord, more snow. You northern state folk are getting pounded! Love his beautiful eyes!! 😻😻😻
They are Dougy’s prettiest feature.
I have been delinquent in my duties sorry Doug just haven’t had the spark
No problem! I have those periods, too.
Dougy is like those skiers who like Western fluffy powder snow. Our snow in the east is wet and heavy, much too watery. Good luck with the storm.
It tends to be dry snow till this time of year, then it is too heavy to use a snow blower.
I have not seen snow since 1999.
It’s still cold and wet. You arten’t missing anything!
I think I’ve ever want to see snow I will buy a snow cone.
Feel free to look at my photos and say “brrr”! This storm started out with rain that turned to sleet, then snow. The rain couldn’t be absorbed into the frozen ground, and the entire region suffrs from massive flooding on top of the snow. I’m in a higher part of the state (3980 ft./1213 meters above sea level), but there has been some flooding here as well. The photos and videos of the eastern part of the state show whole towns flooded. Of coutrrse, many were built along rivers and creeks.
I grew up north of Chicago so I know about snow and bad weather. That is why I moved to Florida. We don’t get the snow here but I had to deal with flooding at my job a couple of times. The last time it happened on a Sunday when we were closed and then the water receded and hit again worse on Monday when we were there. We spent the day trying to slow the flow of water into the building to no avail.
Lots of flooding in the eastern part of the state…. Of course, people tended to build along rivers and creeks there. In the western end of the state, while there are rivers and streams, many communities rely of water from the Ogallala Aquifer instead of rivers, so tend to be less prone to flooding.
I hear about areas that get destroyed from flooding that are rebuilt in the same location. I guess people are stupid.
One town, Niobrara, on the Missouri River in Northewastyern Nebraska, rebuilt three tiumes, but after the first and second times, moved to a biut higher land. They were the exception. I think you are tright, though. We all know building on a flood plain or the beach is a recipe for disater, yet…!
I know here in Florida, if you want a house on the beach you will be paying an extremely high insurance policy.
As well it should be. I can see why people would enjoy living in such places, but you and I pay taxes that are used in disaster relief of people who pay hundreds of thousands, even millions, to live where a hurricane or flood occurs with some regularity. They should have insurance and it should reflect the precarious existance the owner choses.
we are wih you snow and water are not the same… we use two different words for snow and water so there must be a difference, right?
Miust be Andy’s rationale…
