So on Monday, we got 8 inches of snow. Yesterday, it hit in the 40's and things are melting fast. Now by the weekend we will be back in the 20 mark. Yesterday morning, Momma was looking out the garden window over the sink about to take a sip of coffee, when she saw WATER ALL OVER the flat part of the window inside. Then upon looking up, where the window slants, water was pouring in. EEEEEEEK so she had to pull all the plants out, and pull the piece of linoleum up, and underneath it was soaked, and started to mildwey already. So Momma - Miss afraid of heights, did what she had to do, and got the rickety ladder out of the garage, and went up by the window to break all the chunks of ice off the gutter edge & the wondow edges. It seems that some of the icicles formed and ran along the outer edge of the window, then when it got cold again, it separated that part enough to where water came in. By doing that at least the water stopped. Much of the ice has melted, and will today also. Tomorrow we are to get rain - not a welcome thought - no where for the runoff to go. But it sure is nice to see the edges of the grass. Tigger has already started getting worked up about patrolling outside on his leash. He has gone out in the snow a few times, but his paws got cold & started to hurt so he could not play in the snow. The window in the kitchen is open a bit today to air the house out, so we will take turns sitting in it & sniffing for spring in the air. Momma made a grilled cheese & ham sandwich yesterday, so I got a bite of ham, but just a bite. It is the low sodium one too, so Momma said it was ok. I wanted more, but alas, my sad whiney face did not work. So I guess it was a good day for me, and isn't that what is important? me? I should be back this week with the Felix update, as soon as we hear anything. Such a relief that we do not have to say goodbye to everyone...ahhh time for a beauty nap my friends..,

Oh my Maizy we hope the water stopped coming into your house and your Mom can soon have the window open so things can air out. Mold isn't good and soaked wood isn't either...

Did you smell spring in the air? we are cool today but the rest of the week we will get warmer, I think spring is here for us...

Hope Felix is Ok and the news is good, we have been purring for him! enjoy your nap my sweet girl!
hugs

My Dad got to go home early on Monday because the heat in the office was out. So he got to avoid most of the snow and I got to sleep on him a lot!

Sorry you didn't get more ham, but Mom knows best right?
