Is it When Yet?

Um. I dunno. Mom went out to check after dinner last night, and while the snow piles were very small, they were still there. We will all know when Mom looks outside in the morning, when the sun comes up.

I love my kitty condo, and yes, I have explored the bookcase.

In the meantime, Charliepuss from Oz has a question. He thinks Mom and I should have a handicap system for those contestants who live in hot places, or where they don't have snow.

Well, it's a nice idea Charliepuss, but sorry, ain't gonna happen.  Charliepuss, you and I have met after the contest started. You see, Mom and I made a list of things to help you pick a "good date."  But that won't really help. Sometimes the weather is warmer than usual, and sometimes it's colder. Sometimes it rains, and the snow melts faster. There's no way of knowing. It's all just a guessing game, really.

Mom and I thought it would melt before March was over! We would have lost the contest, and we live here, where it snows every winter!

Sorry Claude & Marlene, and Kikky, there is still a bit of snow out there, so you are not the winners of the When When Contest.
 Now with all the foolishness of "snow is different than ice," and to make sure there is no funny business going on, Mom went outside to make SURE what is in the picture above is actually SNOW.

We knew it wouldn't be over in March. We were sooo sure we would win the when when. We thought it would be our turn. Oh well, we'll have to wait til 2014.

I guess it would be too much to ask that patch of snow to stick around for another couple of weeks.

I'm glad you're not going to introduce a handicap system, Millie. Gotta keep it simple for us bean competitors. And although Charliepuss mightn't have seen snow, I know his mom, and she's had quite a lot of experience with it over the years, so he just needs to consult her.

It's very pleasing to see you getting so much enjoyment from your cat condo and terrific that you've taken the opportunity to catch up on reading some of the books on the nearby shelf.

From memory, I think I chose 14th April - looks as though I will be close but not near enough!
I wonder if Charliepuss would like sitting in a window, looking out at the snow.......that won't ever happen in Sydney, for sure.

Thank you for considering my proposal,Millie. I was just messin' wiv ya head! Thank you also for the hot tips! I think there must be a mathematical equation somewhere in all that data you provided. Now just to figure it out! Perhaps the answer is in one of those books on your shelf? Leave it with me.....until next year and I'll throw my hat in the ring and have a guess.

Oh. My. Goodness. Will that little patch melt today or tomorrow or Thursday! Come on sunshine and warm air!

We don't have much less either. Plus snow turns into glaciated ice if it sits for a long time. Still there becuz it snowed.

Have you seen the weather report? Snow in Nebraska, and northern Iowa may get measureable snow on Thursday! Your snow better hurry up and get gone before more shows up! And I love the cat tree, though Calypso is too big to be on the top.
