Formerly Feral Friday - Too Much Snow

They said it was gonna snow yesterday. They said it would start after lunch and end after dinner, with the heaviest snow falling right around the time everybody leaves their day hunting gigs to come home.

Mom decided to leave her day hunting gig early and work at home, which she did. The snow started almost exactly at 1:00 PM and ended at 9:00. Mom says we got 8 inches of snow, which means it fell an inch an hour. Which is a lot.

Mr Karate called about 4:15 and said to Mom, "Good. You're home. Stay there." There were stories of folks taking up to 2 hours to get home, where usually it would take 30 minutes.

Mom is glad she missed driving in the snow.

But she still had to shovel it.

I am -so- fortunate to be formerly feral. I have a great home. Nice and warm. And nobody ever expects me to shovel!

Millie you are so lucky to be a cat. You can just watch the flakes fall. No slipping on the ice for you!

And we have another storm coming our way this weekend!

Mom says it is no fun driving in the snow and it is good that your Mom left her hunting gig early.

One of the greatest things about being a cat is no chores! It is fun to watch the beans do chores.

That's a lot of snow! I'm glad your mom made it home before it got really bad. My mom is very happy she's not in Ottawa - they received 14 inches of snow last Monday!!!

We agree, Millie ... the best way to be feral is FORMERLY! We're all so lucky we don't have to live out there in that snow!

But now, not so much!

So glad you and your mom are home safe and staying warm. Not fit weather for man or beast.

I'm thankful you're not feral anymore, Millie. It would be hard for a homeless cat to find a warm place in your part of the country at this time of year. It's practically a blizzard up there!

Stay inside and stay warm. I just watch the white stuff and am glad I don't have to be outside in it either.
