We have ice...did you read it? We have ice, Too much ice. Not the ice that forms on ponds and rivers, but hanging from trees and fences and wires. And...we have no regular power either. So fur hours already that noisy generator outside is chugging away, helping to keep our den warm and lighted. The peeps could not go to church either, as the roads were too slippery. A lot of churches cancelled the services, but our Church is in another town, so it still had power and services...only without the presence of our peeps, MOL! We wanted them to stay warm and safe with us.
Meowmy was evfur so glad that she didn't have to go to work today...not til tomorrow evening. So we have evfurryone here. Unfur-bro who lives just around the corner from our Church, came over befur this mess started and now he is 'stuck' here! So we have another lap to lounge on, Hah!
Things do look rather purrty out there, and more so if the sun would decide to shine its bright rays on it. Then it ill look like a fairy palace indeed!
There are lots of branches down in our woodsy part of the yard, and a large limb is down, too. But in other areas there are whole trees down, because not only did we get ice, we got high winds, too.
Our poor generator-less neighbors evacuated their den earlier this morning, presumably to go to somewhere with heat and light.
So while we are in this state, we have only limited use of internet...on a wi/fi phone, so we can't make pictures fur any furends with spawsial days and honors. Sorry...
All this just in time fur Christmas, OMC! Snow is now headed our way.
Meowmy said she saw the Ho-Ho Man at her work the other day, a bit early huh? MOL! She will see if he comes back on Christmas Day...she will be there at her work. So we will have to share her on that day...but at least the rest of the furmily will all be here fur us to have lap time with, ahhh!
Meowmy wrote this little verse today about all the ice:
Slip & Slide...
Ice all around.
It fell from the sky,
Now it covers the ground.
Thick and clear,
Cold and bright...
While quite dangerous,
Its a beautifur sight!
Tree limbs in the yard.
Too heavy a burden of ice.
Sidewalks are glazed.
This ice isn't at all nice.
Some call it sleet,
It surrounds all it touches,
Makes walking quite the feat!
If from behind the clouds,
The sun would peek,
It would make all sparkle.
The icy cover bleak,
Would become a splendor - cold;
But wondrous to behold!
Well, Merry Christmas to all!
Stay warm and stay safe!

Merry Christmas Meezers and Dog Guy and Unfur-bro and Meowmy and Pawppy.
Stay warm and safe inside. We had a little ice rain Purrsday night and Mom put her cleats under he shoes Furrday morning. Last night we got 5 inches of snow. Snow everywhere. It looks nice. Hope you guys will thaw out soon so that your people won't fall when they have to go outside.
It is snowing here now...and we just heard that the real power can't be fixed fur days, OMC! How horrid, just befur Christmas!
Oh no!What terrible weather you are having-glad you have a generator and warm laps, stay in and stay warm, we're thinking about you, sending cat purrs and wishes for a Happy Christmas
We've had strange too warm weather-Mom even had our carriers ready in the hallway last night as storms were predicted-we just had a bit of wind and rain. We're looking forward to a peaceful Christmas.
Hugs and purrs,
Mister Micky, Gentleman Jack and Minerva Lucille
Hi Mr Mickey and furmily. They have now opened warming shelters here, since most peeps will be without any power fur days.
Glad you are all safe at your pawlace.
We sure hope that it fixed sooner than predicted, else a lot of peeps will be having a cold Christmas...meowmy just checked and the power is not off at her workpawlace, so at least she will be really warm...the residents love to turn their heaters on high, MOL!
Oh dear, WBS, we are so sorry to hear about the bad weather in your area. We will hope & pray that you & your family stay warm and safe.
Sorry about the weather, but it sounds like a good excuse for a cuddle pile! (And there will probably be a sharp spike in the baby crop 9 months from now in your area. MOL)
I agree, stay warm and safe, but we are evfur so jealous you have a generator. Thank heavens we don't need one here as often as in your neck of the woods, though.
Tee-hee, we hadn't thought of that yet...MOL!
We have had this generator for a number of years but nevfur had to use it this long...
We had that ice earlier this month - it's pretty on the trees, but not very fun.
Hi, Jez! It is furry purrty, but...we would rather not see it at all!
