Finally Friday

OK mum is laughing and grumbling at the weather guessers on TV. They got the snow totals all screwed up and the places that were supposed to get the most are getting the least and vice versa. They said for us 6-11 inches, we maybe got 4.

Now they are saying 6-8, but they don't say if this is TOTAL snow fall or IN ADDITION TO what we already have. Mum says they need to be specific, but then we might be able to pin them down on something!
This picture is from our big storm in December, but mum thought it was pretty to show. One thing that made mum happy is that when she got home she parked the metal monster out on the street. When she got out she realized that someone had already cleared out the snow from the driveway. So mum just had to put the garbage can away, it was empty, then drive the metal monster in to its room.

Oh, mum is getting her coat and boots on, the big truck came and finally picked up our recycling. Mum can get that thing out of the street now.

Oh yeah, I found a cute new little ginger kittie from the UK, Maximus Spittimus. If you haven't stopped by to say 'hi' yet, please do so.

Me I thinks I will just nap.
Happy Weekend one and all.

We're getting snow now too...we never trust the weather guessers...they never guess right!

I'm doin' the same thing, Derby. It's been snowin' all day.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Our weather guys are just as bad - they said it would be 3"-12". What kind of a range is that? We got about 4 or 5 so far but they say more will come later tonight and it will be worse tomorrow because the temps will be lower.

Stay in and stay warm Derby!!

Oh so much snow. Best to stay inside and take naps and keep warm.

The weather guessers around here aren't much better. We were supposed to get a snow storm today, but all we got was a very heavy frost and a few flakes. It was really cold, though. You have very nice neighbors. Herman is doing a lot of napping during the cold weather, too.

Mama has a class for work today, but wishes she cold just stay home with us to enjoy the snow. That was nice of whoever cleared your driveway! Naps for all of us sound really good!

We're in for more snow. We think we may just hibernate!

Simba said...

We totally agree about the weather guessers! For last night we had "1-2 inches" and for this morning we have "total accumulation of 1-2" " but does that include last night too? We don't think it does, but they are so unscientific, which is bad for scientists! Ours is light and fluffy - my Dad already cleared the driveway and he said it was very light. I didn't venture out of course.

We only have about 2 inches of snow, but there is 2 inches of ice under it. Our lane is only accessible to 4WD and tractors and has been like that since last Sunday. Everyone else gets stuck and slides into the hedge. Any one who needs to come to see their horses has to leave their cars in the village and walk down to us.

YAY! Neighbors helping neighbors thats always awesome

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

It snowed a teensy bit here last night, nothing like the big storm before Christmas. Mewmie is glad she has a day off today anyway!

JC said...

Napping by a heater vent is the best idea or on a blanket ^,,^

ASTOR CATS said...

We are expecting snow in "Florida" can you believe it? We don't think it will be "inches" but we are preparing just in case. We gots blankets and are getting ready.

Stay warm!

As dictated by Maximus Spittimus...

'I is not allowed outsides yet. Two legs say I is too young. What is snow? Is it funny white things in sky? I chase at window. The Bumbles comes through flappy thingy with white things on her fur. Weird' - end of dictation

Best Regards

You look great in the soft indoor glow!

LC, Ayla, and Iza said...

Allus hope the snow-casters OVERESTIMATE the snow. More is NEFER better!

Pearl C. Pritchard said...

Hi Derby... we can totally relate to the snow problem. (As you know). I hope your beans have snow tires and good shovels -- because ours don't!

Huffle Mawson said...

Napping is probably the best plan for the weekend Derby. I hope you have a good one.

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

The mom here doesn't understand about the weather unopredictors, she has said we can put folks into the outer space but cannot tell what the weather is going to do. She has better luck just looking outside in the morning than listening to them.
What nice neighbors to have your drive plowed out for her! Way to go for them.
You have the best idea of all, stay inside, stay warm, and get lots of zzzzzs.

Happy weekend Derby!

Its great when a kind neighbor clears the driveway for mom. Dad has trouble with his leg and its hard for her to do it.
Warm-up predicted for this week! (Well, 30 is still below freezing, but its warmer!)
