Peevish Pen

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

No Snow

For the last few weeks, we've had all sorts of weather in my part of Virginia—snow, ice, heavy rain, temps in the 60s, etc. We were supposed to get more snow last night, but all we got was a sprinkling of ice that melted this morning.

Our first snow was a challenge, though.

Chloe wasn't happy that she couldn't go out and do her cat-work.

Arlo holed up and Tanner boxed himself up, but they're housecats so the snow doesn't interrupt their daily activities.

 George tried boxing himself up, but it didn't work too well.

Tanner got a little high on some fresh catnip.

He and Arlo curled up with the iPad.

But sometimes they wrestled.

The second snow storm turned to ice.

But finally it started to melt.

We got some strong winds and heavy rain, but we also got a rainbow.

We were lucky that the tornadoes missed us last week. And that the third snow missed us last night.
