Will There Be When?

At the beginning of February, all thoughts turn to When.


They do.

Everycat starts asking if there will be a When When Contest this year.** 

There really isn't any way to tell. We'll have a When When Contest if there's enough snow on the first of March to make a contest successful. That's almost a month away.

This is what it looked like when Mom and I got up yesterday. Not a whole lot of snow. That's going to change today.

We're supposed to have between 8 and 14 inches of snow today. That's 20 to 35 cm.  The weather guys say when the storm is biggest we will get almost two inches (almost 5 cm) of snow per hour. That's a lot.

Mom has already told her day-hunting boss that she'll be staying home, so we will get a few pictures to update this post during the day.

Paws crossed!

Update: 7:30 AM. The snow has started to fall.

Update: this is about 10:30 AM

Update: This was taken at lunchtime, about 12:30 this afternoon.
Mom went outside and cleaned off about six inches of snow off the metal masheen. The plow guys haven't come by yet.

** What? You've never heard of the world-famous When When Contest? All you have to do to win is guess when all the snow will be gone when Mom and I look out this window in the morning.  It's not as easy as it looks.

It is early and a lot of snow is still coming!

Some of us find that our thoughts turn to When When in November, when the temps in New Hampster start to drop - we don't allow ourselves to delay thinking about the annual guess-fest until February. And it's agony waiting until March 1 to see if it's gonna happen.

A lot can change in the next few weeks! With this crazy weather, who knows what March 1 is going to look like?

It started here late this afternoon and is looking at lot like your view.
We are expecting 15-20cm (give or take)
42 days until Spring! ::sigh::
