Baby, It's Snow Outside

We got about six inches last week, which is considerable for this area.  Luckily, the weather has warmed and its melted.


Franky enjoyed playing for a little while then decided snow was overrated. What about your area, did you get hit too?

AND....
Carmen asked that I tell everyone thank you for the birthday wishes. She really appreciated them. Carmen is seriously ill. A perk up for me is book sales. For an author it's validation. If you haven't read Dracula's Mistress and you think it would appeal, I would ask you to consider purchasing it. The price is .99¢. 
And if it doesn't appeal, I'm sure all well wishes are cherished.

  1. This is seriously SAD. You got so much more snow than I did, and even though it has been bitterly cold here, we haven't had that much snow. You aren't known for snow, are you? My cats have kitty paws and Bleubeard refuses to go outside when it snows. Squiggles has never been outside (except in his carrier to the vet), so he has no idea what snow is. Franky is brave.

    Please wish Carmen warm wishes to feel better soon. I will keep her in my thoughts and please keep us updated on her health.

    1. Hi Elizabeth,
      No we normally don't get snow and it's pretty much melted now. Franky is currently outside trying to figure out how to get those darn birds on the other side of the fence:)

    1. After growing up in the Midwest, that's hard to imagine. But I guess it's a tradeoff, you have such lovely surroundings and weather.

  7. Better you than me. At least it melted fast. Frany looks rather miffed in the first one haha

  8. At least you won't lose Franky in the snow.
    We didn't get much, but that was all right.

    1. Nope, no chance of losing Franky in the snow. Heh. We weren't expecting much and were stunned when we got hit. Do you have nice weather now, Alex?

  10. Snow is just a part of the winter season. It's the ice that always worried me.
    Great photos! Franky knows when enough is enough!
    I am so sorry about Carmen's health. Wishing her better health and healing,
    Congrats to you Sandra 💮

    1. Ice is the worst. We had a few spots but not nearly as bad as it could have been.
      Stay warm:)

  12. I think we'll get hit later this week. (And I'm with Franky -- snow is so over rated!) Drive carefully!

  13. You know I adore looking at the pictures of the snow, and enjoyed having it around for a few days. I think Franky and I could have hung out for awhile(lol) My prayers go out to Carmen. Please let her know that many are thinking of her and sending healing hugs...RO

  14. I always think snow looks so pretty and makes things clean looking. Your pussy cat seems unsure whether she likes it or not, I hope Carmen gets better soon and send her my well wishes. I am trying to get back into things a bit. Last week was busy with all the arrangements and phone calls. Yesterday I truly felt sad.

  17. We wait for at least 4 inches so they groom the cross country ski trails. Haven't seen it, all north of me today.

    1. Thank you, Sharon.
      As long as it doesn't turn to ice, rain is good:)

  19. Pretty! Our Calvin touched snow once and never again. Hobbes however would plow through it, roll in it, and even eat it.

  20. We have rain, and that's about as much weather as I can boast of. The year we call The Great Snow, we had two inches on our deck. The cat went bonkers--California born and raised with no snow experience whatsoever. He almost slid off the edge.

    So sorry about your friend's illness. I do hope she'll return to health and write more stories.

    1. Cute snow kitty story, Lee:) Put a smile on my face.
      Thank you for Carmen's well wishes. They are appreciated.

  21. We had eight to 10 inches already at noon. My husband has had the snowblower going full blast twice already, and I imagine within an hour or so he will be giving the driveway and sidewalk I third pass. It's still snowing. It's beautiful – with all the covered trees – but snow is a lot of work. All schools are closed around here – Minnesota – and that's why my husband has the day off. Thank God. If it were left up to me, I'd wait for spring to venture out. :-)

    1. Ten inches and still falling! Oh my word. Stay safe and warm. That does sound like Minnesota. We used to live in WI.

    Happy Franky had a good time!
