Bye Bye Snow

Standard

So we survived yet another snow – I know that probably sounds ridiculous to those of you who live north of us here in Virginia – you endure BIG snows every winter……..here in Northern Virginia, NOT SO MUCH.    We have had bad blizzards and in fact got one this year but most winters really are not very snowy.    We had our second decent snow this week and it’s already almost melted away into oblivion!    YAY I say………….now I can get to the grass for a munch!

YAY - it's almost all melted away!!

YAY – it’s almost all melted away!!

Yesterday we had a sheet of ice over everything………….it was like an ice rink out there…………but the temps got into the 40s and soon the ice was gone.   Even more melting today with temps tickling 50!    Can Spring be far behind?   I sincerely hope not.    I am not a “winter kitty”……….I used to like snow but now I’m much happier in warmer weather!

You’ve seen these photos of me before but everyone just loves when I post them so I’ll post them YET AGAIN………………….just to prove I really DID love snow when I was younger!

Six years ago!

When I complain about the rain, remind me of this!

Anyway, Spring is coming – I just know it.   I’ll be ready for it too……………..

Yes I’ll be MUCH happier with flowers around me instead of snow!!!!!

I’m READY for you Miss Spring!

SNOWBALLSPLAT !!!!   Gotcha with a snowball!!

Oh my word has it been cold around here and almost everywhere (except you people “Down Under” and in Florida!!!)……………..our HIGH yesterday was 25 and we have three inches of snow and they aren’t going to go ANYWHERE for a while in this windy, cold weather.   With wind chill figured in they say it’s like 6 degrees out there.   But guess what………….yesterday morning I went outside in the snow!   That’s right………for all of about 60 seconds but I was in the snow and I walked in my Dad’s footsteps in the snow and EVERYTHING.    About the time I got up to the driveway I ran out of steam and my tootsies were freezing so I ran quick like a bunny wabbit back to the basement door until OLD MOM got there and inside we came.   YIKES!    Dad went out later and played with his snowthrower (although “play” may not be the right word!!).

Lots of deer tracks in the snow so I guess they’re taking advantage of the full birdfeeders – they do love sunflower seeds and unfortunately they eat our azaleas which means no flowers in the Spring!  DANG!

Everyone really seemed to love the TOUGH Teaser we had this week…………….I’ll try to give you more of those toughies but sprinkle in some easier ones too – don’t want everyone getting discouraged and after all – NOBODY has take home the “First Right Guesser” or “Right Guesser” awards yet…………….the Big Greenie is everywhere though!  HAHAHA

We’re going to have a “Winter Wonderland” party at Cat Scouts and that got me googling some silly photos………….thought you might enjoy these!

Some of you might remember that I have my very OWN sled – my Mom and Dad found it a couple of years ago in an antiques place!

WOW!  My very own sled!

WOW! My very own sled!

Stay WARM if you’re in a cold place…………stay COOL if you’re in a hot place……….and always stay SAFE no matter where you are!

Love and Warm Hugs,

Sammy
