Snowed In and Loving It

Middle of the afternoon on Christmas Day.

The next day, same time.

This morning. 

Barn cats, Aurora and Sapphire, hanging out while I took photos this morning. 

 That little stinker Aurora, was actually in the house when I got up this morning.  She must have darted in when Hubby left for work.  These two were purring up a storm this morning.  Like little motors.  Their food bowls are a bit snowed in, and we still need to finish building an insulated cat house from them.

We are snowed in, but not for long.  I'll enjoy it while it lasts anyway.  The driveway drifted over in 3 places, making it impossible to get in or out.  Hubby will dig us out after work tonight.  According to the news, we only got about 3 inches of snow, and they had predicted up to 10.  It's the wind that makes the difference also. He got out with his 4-wheel drive, but I would need to pull a "Dukes of Hazard" to get ol' Eunice out of the driveway. Ha ha ha!  

 Yesterday was my 14th wedding anniversary.  I set up a table in our bedroom (only room to have a quiet dinner in our house), and had a quiet candlelight dinner with hubby.  I played some dinner jazz music, and served wine in the green wine glasses we bought during our island outing this year.

Happy anniversary. We are the same. We have to sneak to find a quiet spot around her too. Blessings of a full house.

I wondered where do you live? Does three inches of snow make such a big problem. We start thinking it is a problem when there is 2 feet of snow and the county road is not plowed. Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary. I love snow and cats. I have the cats just wish we had the snow.

Congrats on your anniversary! My cat always hogs the heating vent now. Hopefully your cats will have a warm, dry place to hang out this winter. I'd hate to see frozen cats:(
