Encased and trapped by the ice, that is! OMC! So much freezing rain! On top of a few inches of fresh snow...so that we feel like we are embalmed by it.
And right now there is more snow coming down. UGH! We want the warm weather back that we had, only last Saturday! Then it was sunny, too, and our grass was totally bare of snow, and Meowmy was even pulling weeds from the back woods! What a change! Old man winter is playing tricks!
We could hardly get out back door open, and the gates were solidly frozen shut.
When my peeps were trying to clear the walkway, they had to get the edge of the shovel into the bottom,and then use the shovel as a lever to break off hunks of that thick ice. They were so thick they broke off in chunks like large patio stones. We could have made ourselves an ice patio! Or set them on their sides to make walls for a fort...
The ice was so thick, and not let the trees bend and sway in the wind as normal. So then a huge tree broke off, right at the place where the branches all start. It left a big hole in the snow and frozen ground. And it just missed clunking on my pawrents back shed. Phew!
A lot of peeps lost power today, but we were not so plagued. Thank you, God!
I think that not a few of our kitty pals have been impacted by this same messy and dangerous storm. Hope that all of you are warm safe and cozy.
We were warm and cozy all day, but we have been missing Mr Sunshine around here.
Pawppy had the day off because it was President's Day, hoping that tomorrow will be having better conditions!
Nobody went anywhere today...it sure was nice to have them here with us!
Purrs to all of you, and to all a good night!
Glad y'all still have power! Stay warm!

Oh Minko! So glad you avoided injury and further danger. sounds like you had a furry scary day. I'm purring some warm weather your way...
OMC, all that snow that showed up right after all the snow had all melted! It was bad. It's also been so cold, and there is supposed to be more on the way. February has been tough for those of us in MI! Spring is not here yet...
We got a little too. Not bad though. But what a tease. One day last week, Mom had the windows open and was walking around outside with just a sweater and a thin motorcycle jacket. The next day, bam!
Thank goodness we got a bit of a break. All the snow had melted before we got, what? Two or three inches.
Sorry to hear you're still in the thick of it.
OMC! We have had 2 more dumps of snow...and more in the works, and even maybe freezing rain again! UGH!
Lets all purr loudly to make the spring come furry soon!
Hey Minko! We have the same weather! I guess lots of us do.
Thank goodness we didn't lose power. And your back shed is safe and sound!
It will be March soon and maybe ....the weather will be different!
Love Elsa, xo
Yeah! Its March now...maybe things will be more springlike, now...right now it is 18F, though..BRRR!
But the sun is up!
