Meowmy Was In An Avalanche, OMC!

We have a snowmaggedon going on here, and soon it will be Michartica, too:((

Last night it started snowing, and today there was about 6 inches when meowmy & Pawppy got up. Churches all over this area were cancelled including ours.
Over the course of the day at least another 8 or more inches came down, and sometimes it was snowing so hard that when the peeps where shoveling the paths and driveway, as soon as they looked where they had cleaned up, they had to do it again. UGH! It took them hours to do the driveway, and later the roof had to be cleared too, to keep the snow burden at a minimum.
At least we kitties were given the best job: we snoopervised from our warm was snoopervising, but he is silly and kept running outside through his doggy door to see how much progress was being made...or not...because the same paths had to be recleared 3 times today, and could be done again, but now its dark so, well it will have to wait. So we are snuggled with peeps and cozy and comfy. The best.

Just before supper while there was still some light, meowmy took the roof rake to the roof again. She put the thing in a section of snow and started to pull it down...and she heard a low rumbly-whooshing noise, OMC! It was a real life avalanche, Yikes! At least she realized just in time what was happening and was able to stumble in the snow to get out of its way...and down it came with a huge thundering 'whump'. In all the years of 'raking' snow off the roof, that has nevfur happened. At least it didn't bury meowmy alive.

Now we are waiting fur the bottom to fall out of the thermometer, as far as wind chills go, and the real temps are expected to be well below zero tonight, and not much 'warmer' tomorrow.
Meowmy works second shift at the nursing home, so maybe by then some of the roads will be plowed out...which of course means a lot more shoveling work as the driveway will be all filled up again, UGH:(
Pawppy said he will take the day off tomorrow to keep things cleared out, and he can use his confuser to work from home if necessary. Pawppy wisely brought unfur-bro back to AnnArbor yesterday befur all the snow started...and unfur the elder went back to his own pawlace on the third, so we are all where we need to be, safe, warm and cozy.

And remember:
Don't try to change things on your pages in the 'fun stuff' sections (the biofields), because the flea that is pestering them will eat up all your work and you will go right back to a blank Catster page. UGH! Fleas,

Wow, so much snow. That is not good. We didn't get any snow, but the bottom did fall out of our temps. It's minus 12 now (5:00 a.m.) and will warm up to minus 6. Mom is taking today off because it's so cold. All our schools are closed. It is so cold, our outdoors ice-ring is closed. It's too cold to ice-skate. We are sending this cold your way. Hope it gets there soon so that we can go back to a cozy 32 here at the end of this week. Isn't it fun to live in the mid-west in the winter?

So glad your meowmy was able to get out of the way, and everybody is safe and warm now. It got warmer here overnight and rained a lot. We hardly have any snow or ice left - yea! Didn't know we had fleas here!

Oh my goodness! We sure are glad your mom escaped the avalanche! Guess we are purrty lucky to be SoCal kitties. Sometimes, like around holidays, our mom thinks it would be nice to have some real "weather" but then she reads your story & remembers that even though it might look purrty, it is a whole lot of trouble + really cold! Stay warm & safe!

Sending you some warm Michiganderfur purrs! Try to stay warm today and tell your meowmy to stay safe when driving. We got to snoopervise, too, when our meowmy cleared out the snow from the snowmaggedon. We have one of those roof rakes thingies and might need to use it. I bet that was scary when all that snow fell off!

It's all Pansy's fault.
