It may say spring by the calendar but you wouldn't know it by the look of of our yard. Remember those nice pictures I showed you yesterday how nicely our snow melted? Well the snow is all back! Mum says we have gotten 12 inches of snow so far when she was outside last about 6 PM. Plus it is still snowing.

Our last big snow storm came on Ash Wednesday and today's storm is on Good Friday. What a way to bookend Lent! Lots of churches canceled their services. Mum and Grampie decided since it was so nasty out to just stay home and be safe.

Front yard at 9 AM, then 3 PM, then 6 PM.
Patio back of the house at 9 AM, then 3 PM, then 6 PM.

We had all sorts of birdies around eating our foods today, so the party was in my yard. The little guys on the ground, robins in the tree eating the left over crab apples and brown headed cowbirds at the one feeder. These last two birdies have come north already, I don't think they expected such a storm. At one point mum saw three robins in the tree eating the left over little crab apples.
Smudge made his journey over the Rainbow Bridge. He was just a young cat of 2 and his family misses him furry much. Godspeed Smudge.

I got tagged for the middle name meme by
Captain Jack and Sir Dante, also by Chance for the Middle Name Meme.

Here are the rules:
1. You have to post the rules before you give your answers.
2. You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name or your mother's maiden name).
3. At the end of your blog post, you need to tag one person (or blogger of another species) for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged.)

Hmmm, now what is my middle name? I guess it is SASSY!

S = Sexy. 'nuf said!

A= Athletic. I can jump and race around the house. I am a thundering herd of elephants all on my own.

S = Soft, my furs that is.

S = Sophisticated. At least I think so.

Y = Young. Hey I am only four. That is just a really young, when you think that some of our revered catizens are over 15 years old.

I am going to skip tagging anycat. Play if you want to. I am going to go nap and hope that the snow goes away (again) really soon! I want the windows open and nice weather is here all the time.


  1. We wish we could have a little snow here in Alabama. It's been 70 degrees today. We're excited to have some cooler weather in the 60's this weekend. Have a Hoppy Easter!

  2. Wow you really got hit hard Derby...I was going through some of my photographs today and found a few of our last trip to SP. When I get a chance I will throw them up on the bloggie to share SP life from an outside perspective! Hehe...

  3. Hi Derby. Ouch - too much snow! We like the birdies though. I think they will stick around if the food is good. We have good pics of spring flowers on our blog if you want to think about what will come your way - eventually!

    Purrs, Halloween

  4. Have you considered moving? That seems like a lot of snow and so late in the year!

  5. Oh Derby, we were just feelin sorry for ourselves, mum was saying that the weather has turned to autumn because it is 8.50pm and her footsies are cold. We can't complain cause we can see it must be soooooooo cold for dem birdies.

    Keep warm friends and have a nice Easter, and I hope spring arrives soon for you.

  6. I hear ya!!!!!!

    We got freezing rain the last day or two on top of all the flippin snow!!!!!!

  10. We are so sorry about all the snow... it is just cold and windy here. I guess we won't complain.

    Wishing you and your family a warm and happy easter... may spring come soon for all.

    Though things get rough lately, Meaouwy Troops still like to share their furryfriend story about the unusual mark on her body and helping mommy disclose one of the reasons why we become the best communicator with humans:) so check them out in our blogs to find it more.

  12. Goodness, what a lot of snow still and it's supposed to be spring. At least you get to have a bird day party in your yard.

    Days are getting shorter and cooler my part of the world, so where has all the warm weather gone?
