Thursday 13 - More Damn Snow

We are gonna have MORE SNOW! Mom is sick of it. This is like the third snowstorm in a week. Here are 13 reasons why she doesn't like the snow:

1. It's cold.
2. She has to clear it off the silver macheen.
3. She has to shovel the driveway.
4. It occupies space. The more of it there is, the higher the snowbanks get, and the harder it is to pile up.
5. It makes driving dangerous.
6. It can make stopping impossible.
7. The snowbanks make the street narrower, so it's harder to drive.
8. Lots of beans walk in the street instead of on the sidewalk because it's easier. This makes it even harder to drive safely down the street.
9. The height of the snowbanks make it hard to see little sticky people or even adult beans, and sometimes other cars.
10. The snowbanks make parking lots smaller.
11. The snow covers up the lines in the streets and in parking lots, so people drive where they think the road should be, and park any which way they want.
12. Some sticky people and even teenager beans think it is funny to throw snowballs at macheens driving by.
13. It's cold.


At least the Christymas tree is no longer naked. It is very pretty, and I have set my decoy under the tree.

OK, looking at the Christymas tree, Mom feels "the spirit," so here are 13 reasons she LIKES the snow:

1. It's pretty.
2. It muffles the sound while it's falling, so it makes everything quiet.
3. It covers up the yukky stuff to make everything look clean.
4. It sparkles.
5. Sometimes, when the snow gets packed down by the wind, and the weather is really cold, the snow crunches when she walks on it.
6. Did we say it's pretty?
7. You can go sledding.
8. Mr Karate likes snowboarding.
9. Pip-pay and the Boy like to go skiing.
10. When the snow covers things, it makes pretty snow sculptures.
11. It's fun to watch the snow fall.
12. It really feels like Christmas when there is snow.
13. It's cold.

What can I say? Beans are weird.

We just have lots of rain this week. Lots and lots of rain. I hate the rain.

Poppy Q said...

Ohhh you girls keep warm and stay inside as much as you can.

Dats good news about dat polyp and your tree is pretty.

Parker said...

Great tree! Our snow is supposed to get rained on this weekend. No white Christmas for us.
ps - Gizzy sometimes goes upside down and sometimes right side up. I love both sides!

Your tree is very beautiful, Millie. My humans don't like snow, my mom especially. Both of them are happy that last winter was very mild in Munich, with only one week of snow, and this winter looks to be the same. Whereas in Ottawa, where they were living before coming to Munich, and where my mom's family still lives, they've had one of the worst winters in 40 years already, with two snowstorms dumping over 2 feet of snow each time! They are very glad they aren't in Ottawa right now!

Stay safe and warm with all that snow!

Mombean says I'm not allowed to mention writing one's name in the snow as a 'good' thing about winter.

But she agrees it can be a pain in the #13!

Mom says that is 26 reasons she is glad she lives in Florida! She gets cold when it's 75! Your tree looks lovely and have you tried to climb it yet? We would like to wish you and your Family a blessed Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2008!!
Your FL furiends,

Meowm agrees with most of those things about snow. She does like that it sparkles...she says it looks like lots of diamonds on the ground! We are supposed to get more of it here...but we haven't had as much as you! Stay safe and warm!

And we got your card! Thank you!

I think your mom should just stay inside with you. I mean, it sounds miserable out there and lovely in your house!

We gotted a little bit of snow a couple of weeks ago but it is all gone now. It would be nice if we gotted a big snowstorm and everybody would have to stay home!

Daisy said...

Snow seems very exotic! I wish I would get some, especially around the holidays.

Your tree is beautiful.

Tybalt said...

Those are all good reasons to HATE the snow and even more good reasons to LIKE the snow.

Gorgeous tree, Millie! I love your decoy.

cyclone cats! said...

yup. our mom hates the white stuff too. The beans here are talking ice and rainy stuff, maybe snow for the weekend. (that'd be good-then the beans can't leave us!)

Pixel said...

My mommy is in the hating the snow today. We are getting the same storm as you but we are a little more south ( peabody ma) Stay warm and make sure to give you mommy extra purrs when she comes in from the cold

Derby said...

Mum agrees with your two TT's. Snow is nice but then it isn't either.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Snow is a four letter word, period! Mom is just tired of it.

Artsy Catsy said...

Yep, I agree, beans are weird. Not only do they love to complain, but sometimes they love the things they complain about -- makes no sense to me!

Nice Thursday 13's! We'd like to jus go from Fall to Spring, but The Big Thing said we would miss out on Chrissy Mouse Day, so we're not sure.

We're 'xcited though. The Big Thing is puttin it wif his own gif, so we are gonna have a Solstice Day gif openin time Saturday. We will post pictures of it then.

Thank you so much... Ooh tomorrow is gonna be SUCH a great day!
