Slippin' and Slidin' and Cold Bottoms

Here are some photos of our recent storm. Though it looks like snow, it's made of sleet and frozen solid. Dad's big truck can drive across it and not even leave a track. We're glad he has four-wheel drive, because otherwise we wouldn't get to go for a ride this week at all. Mom doesn't "do" ice.

Here is My Girl's pickup. Yeah, that's not moving until July, is it? That's our house in the background, it's nice and warm.

Our guinea hens are not happy about the ice. They can't find anywhere to...well, do whatever guineas do all day. No place to peck at all. They ran around silly for awhile.

Finally, they flew into the icy trees and started to complain. It sounds like, "BuckWHEAT! BuckWHEAT! BuckWHEAT!" Guineas complain alot.

This sparkly tree was by the big barn. The ice glows in the sun.
More trees. This is a good place to explore. I spend a lot of time sniffing around here, but not today.

Finally, this is Nigel the fat cat. I guess the ice was cold because he seems to be sitting sidesaddle here. hee hee
I hope all your doggies and hammies out there are in a warm place today.

Tell. The snow looks pretty but brrr you stay warm inside. Guess Nigel has enough fat on him to keep him warm even when he's outside eh?!

Wags, Eric xx

Oh yeah we're in a warm place alright...too hot down under maties.

We wish we could trade some of our heat for a little of your cold.

Hey, Tell!

Hope you're keeping your own booty nice & warm. Looks to me like Nigel is the only one with the cold bottom. Why is he still outside? Go INside, Nigel.

So, is your girl going to have to chisel her truck out of the muck? I hope not.

Have a good weekend, guy.

Goober love,

Yep, your girl's truck looks like it won't be moving anytime soon! When our pawrents lived in New York state, our mom drove a 3/4 ton pick-up truck and she always had to put really heavy steel bars in the back end to keep it from sliding on the ice. One year, they had 109 inches of snow...not all at one time, thank doG! Stay warm and safe!
