It all started on Monday when the Mom was talking about a blizzard coming to our area. She went to the grocery store and stocked up on a bunch of food, went to the gas station and filled up the CRV, and charged up the cell phones. I kept wondering what a blizzard was since I have never ever seen one before.
All the news folks were talking about it and saying that it was to arrive on Tuesday and I put two and two together and knew that it was coming from outside. I thought I would check things out and see if I would to be the first to spot it, whatever it was.
February 1~Our backyard overlooking the pond
Right on time the blizzard was here. For once the weathermen were right even though the mom and dad here were wishing they were wrong. All night long there were strange sounds outside. The wind was blowing so hard and mixed in with the snow was sleet that was hitting the house. The house made all kinds of noises that I didn't like. The mom held me and told me everything would be OK and not to be afraid. The three of us all slept together that night. I figured the blizzard monster would have to go through them to get to me. Safety in numbers.
February 2~Round two of the storm
In the morning of the next day the monster was still here, this blizzard was here to stay. Our county was under a Level 1 warning which means that unless you are an emergency worker you must not be out in your cars. The wind was still blowing and making a racket still. Sometime in the afternoon the monster got quieter and then finally went away, I don't know where it went but I sure was happy that it was gone.
When it was time for the folks to start thinking about digging out the nice neighbor across the street came into the driveway with his truck and plowed almost all of the snow out of their way. They were beyond happy when he did this and called his house with many thanks of appreciation.
I didn't like all of the noise that the monster blizzard made so the mom put a nice comfy blankie in the masterbedroom closet for me to snuggle down on. It is nice and quiet in there, almost sound proof plus it is nice and warm. She kept checking on me to see if I was OK. As you can see this worked out purrrfectly for me. The mom is going to keep the blankie there for me and I am thinking is my new found favorite sleepy place. Do you know that when she turns off the light in there it is such a fantastic catcave! Love it.
Today, Thursday, the weather is cold beyond cold. Please keep the furries in your purryers who live outside that they will find food, shelter, and be safe. And be sure you all stay safe!! Oh, if you need me I will be in my catcave.
