Snow on snow on snow

I always think these things will be less than predicted. They told us to expect the snow to begin at 4am with ground cover by 7 and white-out blizzard by lunch.

The snow began at 9- ish it covered everything by 10. I know because I took Sabir out. He sat in it and looked thoughtful while it soaked into his backside.

Now it is midnight. The world outside is white and yellow, closed in with tiny dots rushing sideways. I cannot see to the end of the block.

We have all been told to stay off the roads, and to try please not to do anything dumb. There will be people who need help, and nobody needs to wreck the car with shopping that could wait, or decide to gas grill in the bathroom, or sustain a frozen bagel laceration.

So we will settle down and wait. Maybe it will be interesting.

I'm sure you and yours will do just fine! Snow, even a lot of it isn't bad if power stays on. If not, then you have the chance of someone trying to do stupid stuff, like gas grilling in the bathroom!

Our snow is almost gone now... most days above freezing and a lot of rain to melt it. Fresh snow is nice, I think, but as it melts it gets dirty and sort of ugly.

Keep us informed, toots. Thinking of you.

It's hard to imagine such blizzard conditions here. We had one day of heavy snow last Saturday; the kitties were initially horrified, toots & partner went sledging, everyone made snowmen, and by Monday it was gone.

Do you think this was Sabir's first experience of snow, or would he have encountered it before?
