Snowed In!

Tom: They had been predicting snow for several days so, this time, we thought we were prepared but.... when #1 and I went out last night at midnight for our last rounds, we almost sank! We didn't realise what had been happening and during the evening, something like a foot of snow came down! That is more than anyone remembers ever seeing here! We went to bed very excited about what our morning walk would bring us, and we were not disappointed!

The sun was shining!


The air smelled delicious!


Here is our house:


and the path down to the trout stream:


The big field:


And the magnificent oak trees:


I just LOVE the snow and I had the best time!

It was beyond awesome! When we got back, #1 had to spend quite a bit of time getting the snow crystals out from between my toes, and up my legs and on my tummy! And then I got special paw salve rubbed into my pawpads! This is the life!

  3. Wonderful! Just beautiful! That is very much snow indeed. We are in for more snowfall too on Friday and the weekend but we never get much snow. Tommy, you look glorious!
    Mom just told us that she is going to visit you! We will both try to sneak into her travelling bag. Exciting!

  7. Wow you got a lot of snow! We are expecting about that much here in the next day or so - but us kitties aren't so thrilled about it! We think it is much more of a dog thing! Have fun but stay warm (and keep the kitties warm too!)

  9. WOW, those pictures are so beautiful! I would have been excited too.
    I'm expecting snow in Bouches du Rhone tonight. I'd be very disappointed if I wake up tomorrow to snow-free roads :-)

  12. Oh Tommy, you look like you are having the best time in that snow! But take it from a snow veteran, you've got to stick your whole snooter deep into the snow so that only your eyes show when you lift your head up! You have no idea what you might find in the snow. I usually find at least one long-lost tennis ball! Good luck!

    That photo of you by the trout stream path is gorgeous!

    Your pal,

  21. Isn't the snow just wonderful, Tommy? We have lots here too but today it is actually too cold for us to enjoy it. But we have had fun in it before the frigid temps hit us. Your trees look gorgeous.

  27. Hi Tommy - we apologise for not leaving a message for a while but we have been following your blog avidly. Female human is in LOVE with your kittens - we're a bit worried 'cos she thinks they're much cuter than us - gasp!! Still, we have to agree with her...!

    Oh yes, the snow is WONDERFUL! We were intrigued to hear of your paw salve - we've never heard of that before and we're really bothered by icy paws. Is this salve specific for these conditions - we simply MUST send our humans out to get some for us....!
