Grateful for Rain?

I missed Caturday Art yesterday so I thought I’d give you an artsy fartsy selfie today.

Grateful for Rain? - Sunday SelfieFor the past couple of days we have been thinking about our friends in the east in the path of the big snow storm. We hope you are all safe.

Our biggest concern here when we have snow or high winds is that the power might go out. Mom says we depend so much on electricity that it is a little scary. Our heat depends on the electricity and that is the worst. You know how us kitties hate the cold! We moved here during the winter and one of the first things mom bought was a kerosene heater for emergencies.

We have lots of … Continue reading

Caturday Art: Blizzard

Caturday Art: Blizzard - Our First Snow

Although we didn’t have a blizzard, we did have our first snow on Wednesday. Not only was it our first snow of the season but our first snow ever since we moved here. That’s right. It never snowed last year. Mom was pretty excited about the snow but I didn’t really find it that interesting. She says I’ll feel differently about it when I go out in it. What? When does she think that is going to happen?

When she was trying to get me to look at it so she could take a picture, all I wanted to do was get away from the cold, open door. Silly mom. She even brought out the treats to try to get me to stay by the door. Well, that was the end of that. All I could look at then was mom and the treat bag.

Thankful Every Day

Good afternoon friends and furiends! I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday with loved ones, whether or not you were celebrating Thanksgiving!

Echo, Ocean and I had a pretty quiet day since mom was gone most of the day. She gave us a great breakfast of our raw chicken and rabbit then headed out early for Minden, NV with her friend Kelly. They went to Kelly’s uncle’s house, about two hours away, for Thanksgiving dinner.

If you saw my post on Instagram, you know we had snow on Wednesday, so it was uncertain if they would actually be able to go. To get to Minden from our house you have to drive over the Kit Carson pass at 8600 feet. If there was snow on Thursday, they wouldn’t be able to go, or even want to for that matter. By Wednesday afternoon, no snow was predicted for … Continue reading

No White Christmas

No white Christmas - it's only frost!When we woke up this morning, there was white stuff all over our lawn. Mom says it is not snow, just frost. It may not be a white Christmas but it is the closest we are going to get — at least for this year. It has been raining off and on for weeks but never when it is cold enough to snow. Mom says it has to be colder for the rain to turn to snow. Wow, weird. It rained yesterday afternoon but it was in the 40s. Last night, it got down to 29 but no rain. Mouses, as Nissy would say.

 

 

We don’t really know what snow is. Mom has had white Christmases when she … Continue reading
