Greetings from the cold North!

We did get about 40 cm of snow over the weekend. Spirits were fairly low. The MM had to stay in the city so it was just the PM, wee ones and us cats at home. The PM tried to go out to start shovelling when it was all over and she couldn't open the door more than 8 inches! The back door was the same. She made up her mind to crawl out the front window into the rose bushes but the screens were frozen and wouldn't even thaw with a hairdryer.

A wave of claustrophobia panic descended. I offered to go out but the PM said I was too small to handle the shovel. Rats!! Then the PM thought the wee lad could try. He donned all his snow gear and squeezed through the opening. He couldn't handle the big shovel too well so he dug out the door with a Tupperware cover.

What a production, I tell you!!

Yesterday was a beautiful day so I went out to check out all the whiteness.

Really pathetic! The banks are so high I could only see blue sky!
I felt like I was in a little mouse trail!

The snow was really powdery and really did a number on my toehawks.
I had to stop for a cleaning four times!!!!


I feel like an explorer on the deserted Arctic Tundra!

Here are some photos from around the yard.

There is about 5 feet of snow in the side yard.

Our lovely Snowdrops are under there somewhere.

Are you guys ok?

Cory said...

That is so funny, when mom saw all that snow she said "Holy Moly" that's a whole lotta snow....and then she sees the Island Cat's comment. Haha.

Goldie you sure are brave for going outside with all that frozen stuff.

Inquiring cats wanna know...did you ice pee?

Beautiful photos of you, Goldie! But you've had a pretty rough winter, haven't you? #1 just spoke to a friend in PEI who said they were expecting yet another snowstorm.

Lisa Kolosey said...

Wow! I thought we had it bad, but Tupperware for a shovel??? That takes the cake! You are a great tundra lion, Goldie!

Yikes! Thats more snow than anny of us MD kitties have ever seen at once! We are glad ya were able ta get the walk cleared (with great effort from "the wee lad").

CCL Wendy said...

Whoa! You guys are really snowed in! And I was feeling sorry for us because it snowed again here, today -- but most of the previous snow had melted already.

I had to laugh at your efforts to get outside, although I'm sure it was frustrating.

Goldie reminds me so much of Dante! They don't understand that if they keep licking their toes, the spit is just going to keep freezing and make their toes even colder. I think they need boots or something!

Mr Puddy said...

Holly COD !!!! So much snow !! Like a mountain !!! Lucky you got long fur !!!!
Stay Warm , Buddy !


We thought the same thing...HOLY MOLY Batman!
*WOW* That IS a lot of snow.
Goldie you sure are brave to get out in that.


Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

That is a lot of snow! It must have been scary to be trapped indoors. Well done to the wee lad!
We hope you got your toesies nicely warmed up again Goldie.

Miss Lizzy said...

WOW!!! I'm impressed that you inspected the snowfall firsthand, Goldie. I feel sure that Tiger would do no such thing -- he's never liked to go out in the snow. Incredible pictures! Reminds me of pictures of the big snowfalls we had when I was little -- upstate NY in the 1960s and early 70s. Keep spirits up, all! Spring will come!!
