Rainy Day Snooze

Yesterday was a GRAY day…………..various shades of gray too – it ALMOST seemed as if the sun might break through because it got LIGHT GRAY……….then five minutes later it was DARK GRAY and raining cats and dogs……….well not literally – imagine what a mess that would be!

RAINCATSANDDOGS

EEEEK!

It was a little bit freaky because the first forcast said SEVERE weather but we didn’t get anything SEVERE – just WET.    I was happy about that…………….it didn’t disturb my napping patterns at all.   I hardly noticed in fact.   Except when I whined to go outside and was LET out on the front porch only to see RAIN………I am not a fan of rain.   Neither is this guy.

CATINRAINCOAT

 

So I stayed inside for the most part, doing what I do best…………………and we ALL know what THAT is right?

As if you haven’t seen enough snoozer photos of me to fill 87 albums!!!   Some of these are newer and some are older…………….the older ones I was a chub – now I’m slim and trim and downright bony but that’s OK…..as long as I’m putting one foot in front of the other Mom says I’m just FINE!

To top off a WET day, we actually had tornado warnings last evening just about dinner time………..we waited and watched but thankfully they didn’t hit our town – in fact, while there were some pockets of possible tornadic wind activity, not sure there was one that touched the ground anywhere near us.  But we were “EYES TO THE SKY” and listening to the weather radio, you can bet on it!

Anyway, we are hoping that tomorrow we’ll get a bit of a break from rain……….our ground is now saturated between the heavy snows we had which are melted now and the rain and people are afraid if we get wind, the BIG TREES will come down.   We hope not – we have a lot of big trees around our house.   I do NOT want to be like this guy!

SKYFALLING

So I’ll just keep on snoozing and hoping Chicken Little is WRONG………..I like my sky right where it is thank you very much!

Hugs,

Sammy Snoozeman

  1. It was rainy around here, too, S. I had to wear my raincoat. Mom is noticing how dingy and worn out it is, so we may go to buy a new one at Petco today. That’s fine with me. I will walk up and down the rawhide/bone aisle and sniff every bin 800 times.

    Love and licks,

    • Oh Raz we were watching the TV very closely as the severe storms got closer and closer……we had tornado warnings and watches from late afternoon until 9PM but they moved through very quickly and luckily we didn’t have any tornados…………SO happy you didn’t get them either!!!!

  2. Glad you didn’t have any severe weather, Sammy. There was a tornado not too terribly far from us, and tragically, three people were killed. It happened about a half mile from where one of our friends works, so we were relieved that she wasn’t hurt. We have sun today: YAY!

    • Isn’t that rain slicker way cool? Mom wishes I’d wear something like that because I sometimes INSIST on going outside when it’s raining – she tries to hold an umbrella over me but I’m not very good about staying close to her!!! HAHAHA

  5. Sammy , you need a raincoat like that. You would look so cute. I love the snoozing collage, I can see you are an expert snoozer. Hope you have a sunny day. I wish we had our rain gauge out because I would love to know how much we had. I am guessing over 2 inches- but it is better than snow 🙂 XO

  6. Samny, I Skyler have the proverbial little yellow slicker…with hood. BLEAH. But it does keep my body dry. We had a tree on our street come down in the rain & wind yesterday and lost power for about 9 hours. Mama read your Mama’s book by the light of her Kindle app. She sez thanx to your Mom!

    • Skyler – you have one of those slickers? How cool is that! EEEK on the tree coming down – good thing it didn’t land on your house……power out that long is BAD when it’s winter time – hope things are back to normal now! Happy that your Mom read my Mom’s book – did she enjoy it????

  7. Well, we’ve got that wind today after yesterday’s non-stop, heavy rains. Mom had to go to the dentist, and she couldn’t even get out of the car as the wind kept slamming the door of the car closed. She HATES wind. It makes her grumpy and angry. We had snow flurries this morning. We say enough is enough…we want spring! Mom says that one good thing about the dentist visit is that she met some really nice cat people that she talked to for a really long time. Stay warm and dry with unruffled furs, Sammy, and snooze away! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    • Hi Gang! I’m so sorry your Mom had all that trouble yesterday with the wind – it was really awful wasn’t it? We didn’t get any further rain and no snow thank heavens but that wind did blow a lot of dead stuff out of the trees…..My Dad will have his hands (and lawn cart!) full when he gets around to some Spring clean up (assuming Spring really does get here EVENTUALLY!). I’m glad your Mom met some cat folks at the dentist – new friends are FUN!

  9. Hey Sammy. We had rain all day yesterday and thunder boomers last night. We were a bit nervous but Dad called us and we all went in on the bed to make sure he was not skeered.
    Buddy Budd is doing as well as can be expected. He is eating his dry fancy feast (so jealous) and sleeping with Dad on the bed purring away. Thank you so much for the purrs and prayers we really appreciate them my friend

    • Hi Timmy! I am so happy to hear that Buddy Budd is eating well and getting in some good cuddles with Dad….he’s a brave boy and all of you are so wonderful to be taking such GREAT care of him. Kinda scary, but you and Einstein are brave CAT SCOUTS and can lead the rest right? Right! I’m sending POTP every single day my friend.

  10. I hope your rain goes away Sammy. We have had 3 dry days in a row! Mum is hoping it stays dry tomorrow too because the garden may be dry enough for her to do some weeding and preparation for spring. I am glad the tornado kept away from you.

  11. Rainy days are meant for napping, right? We’re glad the nasty weather missed you. We had some very hard rain and wind last night but luckily nothing more than that (we did hear thunder in the night though – very weird to hear that in February!). This morning was warm and sunny – it was so nice! But then the wind picked up, more rain came, and now the temperatures are going to drop again. 😦 Crazy weather!!
