Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

Spring Snow II

Snow fell again on Sunday night, closing schools across the region. On Monday morning, when I went out, the world was white. Fresh snow hung from bare branches.

Just outside the garage, snow covered the PT Cruisers.

Down by the barn, the tractors were snow-covered, too.

Of the three kennel dogs, only Maggie the border collie ventured out. The weather is never too bad for a border collie.

A little snow didn't stop Melody from heading to the pasture . . .

. . . or barn-cat Spotz from going for a stroll . . .

. . . or garage-cat George from following me to the mailbox as he does most mornings when I go to get the paper.

The peach tree beside the mailbox had a few blooms, but they were covered in snow.

After getting the paper, George and I turned for home.
