Turn It Off!

Stop Already!!!

OK – here’s the thing…….I know that north of us the poor peeps have had TONS more snow than we’ve had – TONS more.   We’ve been lucky in that regard for sure……..what we are tired of HERE is having even tiny snows.  Irritating snows.  Three inch snows.   EVERY DING DANG DAY!    What’s with that?   Why not just let us have six feet of snow PERIOD – then give us spring and melt it all.  Now that sounds like a reasonable plan.

January 2012 Snow

Poor Dad was out AGAIN with the snowthrower……………..and it was snowing the whole time.  He’d do a long strip of driveway then by the time he got back up the strip was covered again.   Why bother???!!!  I suppose we will have LESS snow piled up in the spots he cleared even if it was temporarily……but I’m just TIRED of the stuff – know what I mean?

Poor Dad!

Poor Dad!

OK – I feel better now………I got that off my chest…………I have nothing to complain about really because Mom and I have been inside nice and warm all day WATCHING the snow.   Lucky us.

Go Dad Go!

Go Dad Go!

Tomorrow Mom is supposed to go have some blood work done………maybe yes – maybe no………..time will tell…………there’s  a lot of street plowing that will need to be done before that’s gonna happen.   Maybe Dad’s next “toy” (like the snowthrower is) should be a full blown snow plow?   Like the highway department uses…….just think – one quick swipe and it’s ALL GONE!

I’ll suggest he put that on his Santa Wish List…………………

Stay warm everyone (unless you’re in hot places in which case stay cool!).

Hugs, Sammy

    • You’re right Fozziemum….Dad has had TOO MUCH toy time this winter and we haven’t said goodbye to the snow monster yet! We’re not sure we can get Mom to her appointment today but that’s alright – we can change it if we have to. So autumn is there huh? The prettiest time of the year (although Spring is pretty swell too!)……..seems like you had a very short summer. I’m glad you’re seeing your roos again AND if you had some wet stuff – as it rain or sleet????

      Stay safe no matter what’s going on outside!
      Hugs, Sammy

      • Poor dad indeed Sammy..he needs to get his shorts on and relax!..glad Mum can change her appointment..and yes we seemed to have a short summer..with not so many hot hot days..however if we have a dry winter again..well..i think we dodged a bullet fire wise this season..so many dams around are drying up..and stock is still getting lots of feed bought in.The sheepies here have been getting lots of feed bought for them too. The rain was a drizzle but on and off all day..enough to give me a break from the watering rounds! I will stay safe Sammy..and I caved and will be entering my Apple pie Apple Cake and Apple muffins tomorrow..so wish me luck! …early to bed so I can get my muffins done fresh 🙂 loves Fozziemum and stay warm!!! xxx

Today we will have some sun for a change BUTTT the high temperature will be below freezing. It’s just not FAIR!

  3. You are just getting WAY too much snow, Sammy! My human’s boyfriend is doing a show in Michigan and the rest of his bandmates are in Maryland, and they had to do a lot of flight juggling to guarantee they could make it to the gig.

  8. When I furst came our Dad did a bit of attacking the snow with a plow on his little tractor. He told me the neighbor, who was quite an old fellow, would try and beat him finishing. MOL. We have 150′ drive which is not awful big but enough for a good competition. A few years ago the old guy moved and Dad has the lawn dude do it now. Sigh. The good old days.
    Yes lets get this gone already! What if we need treats or something? Very scary. MOL

  9. Well phooey and ‘ding dang day’ LOL, that’s one way of putting it. I’ve watched the news about Washington being buried and schools shut down. I’m thinking it must melt in the next two weeks so those Cherry trees can warm up and get their funk on before we all arrive. Do I feel sorry for your dad too? Yep, sure do…..but more worried about Cherry trees….I’m so selfish. Sorry Sammy’s daddy xo K

  12. MORE white stuff? MOUSES!

    We had sun yesterday and have it again today. I was beginnin’ to think the sun might have forgotten how to get up here to Nova Scotia but it did, at last. I’m thinkin’ that there might be some meltin’ goin’ on. There’s still white stuff as far as the eye can see but the piles might be down an inch or two. Only forty or fifty more inches to go! Hmmm…. That sounded a whole lot more promisin’ before I wrote it all down. Awww… MOUSES!

        • I bet the cats are purrrrfectly happy to be in their special condos – nice and cozy…..sometimes ferals and shy cats just want their OWN space and not share it with humans or other animals. We think that’s why I’m so very shy – because I was found as a little feral kitten abandoned under an old house – I just trust Mom and Dad and am very SHY around everyone else!

  16. The snow was really pretty yesterday when it was falling, but like you, we are so over it. Staying in the 20s today so nothing melting. We are supposed to have normal temps with highs in the 50s for the next several days. With any luck this stuff will melt. Hope this is the last of it for all our sakes.

  18. There’s nothing more annoying than just enough snow to have to remove it, and that makes the roads messy. Especially when it happens every day! My hubby hated snow removal when he had to use a snowthrower. Now he has an ATV (4-wheeler) with a plow, and he doesn’t mind it nearly as much, and even has fun sometimes! 🙂
