What we do when it sleets

ME before mom made the bed 


ME after mom made the bed 
it was cold and dreary so I went under cover.

OMCs we had about 1" of sleet/freezing rain on Friday. Saturday morning it started snowing and
snow off and on all day.  Good news is the snow left a nice powder surface on top of the sleet...easy walking.  We might thaw out by April.  Our house faces North.  Mom said Gracie, the Highlander has about a 1/8" ice coating.

  1. We love the cardinal...so beautiful. Glad you're leaving out some food for him. Our VA relatives are under LOADS of snow, but enjoying it at the moment....wait for the thaw and slush...yuck. Don't get too cocky about easy walking on snow and ice. anything can happen.

  6. Very wise, Madi! That's a lovely quilt you are hiding under MOL. Snow can be so deadly, but it looks beautiful when you're nice and snug inside!! Stay warm xoxox

  7. I don't like to go under the covers. But Mara says two of her previous kitties were always hiding! How did they see anything?

    Our snow is gone now. So, I could finally go out again. Finally!

  8. smiling at the hump under that quilt i love. you are so smart. and i see you stay far enough away from the fireplace to keep from singing the furs. wish we had a fireplace right now. no heat and a tiny heater. brrr.. i love the out door collage, the lights shining on the frost. beautiful. the bird feeder looks great with its snow on top and i want to make foot prints in the deck

  10. OMD/C! Just look at your cardinal! His red is so brilliant against the snow! We have a pair of cardinals in the back yard now. The gentleman has been fighting with his reflection in the sliding glass doors every morning. BOL

  21. Madi, I hope the sun comes out and melts all that snow and ice. I like to sleep under the covers whether it's sleeting or not, :). ~Zoey

Sorry you got some ice.....we still have all 30 inches of snow although NOT on my driveway because my Dad got it ALLLL off with his snowthrower! YAY FOR DAD.....too bad the main road isn't plowed - oh well. We're not going anywhere and it might be April before we do! HAHAHA

    Love, Sammy

  24. You ARE the smart one, Madi! That icy stuff is NASTY to deal with - and so dangerous! We get ice storms here and even we can't go on walks in that! It's terrible!
    Yours sincerely,

  27. Brrrr! We're glad you and your pawrents were prepared, Madi. Looks like under the covers is the best place to be when the weather is so awful. Hope your thaw gets an early start this week.
