Race Ya!

Me racing mum up the stairs from the dungeon. I win, again!

Happy weekend one and all. Mum and I will be snuggling as it will be cold again. Not as bad as last week but snuggling weather for sure. Cold enough to keep the falls frozen for a while.

Some of you asked how cold it has been here to to freeze the falls. We had -15F or -27C and one day it never got above 0F which is -17C, last week. Two really cold days and nights. It hasn't been above freezing in the past week either, but we have had some sunshine. Mum drives by this everyday to and from work. She says it looks about the same for now. She will try to watch to get pictures of when it breaks open again, whenever it warms up again. That won't be anytime soon.

Oh, you got stairs. How come all cats got stairs and I got none? The older humans we used to visit (before the got the big stinking monster) had stairs, but here... flat as a pancake.

Good Heavens to Mergatroid, Derby. It's a wonder you're not a kittysicle! I'm not sure I'd peep my nose out from under the covers with temps like that. You stay real warm,buddy.

We haven't got any stairs to race up, but I beat mum everywhere else.
It is much too cold for us where you live. We had -12C one day which is unheard of for us. We didn't leave the woodburner all day.

Snuggling sounds like a perfect way to spend a cold weekend.

Kitties always win in that type of races. Love your falls - looks a little funny in winter when it's frozen over though. I have never seen anything like that. The only ice I have ever seen are those from the freezer. Sydney's winter hardly ever falls below 30F and it never snows.

Stay warm and Happy Snuggling!

We allus beat The Big Thing up the stairs. He is SO SLOW. But then, we have more feets than he does...

Karen Jo said...

I think cats always win the race up the stairs. Your weather is way too cold. We get down into the negative numbers sometimes, too, but I don't think I have ever seen the temperature that low. Keep warm.

We always win too, when we're going up or down the stairs with Mom. And she usually ends up tripping over one of us or nearly stepping on a tail!
