Happy May Day!

 

I told you we were going to get snow yesterday and today.

We did and both days but it was gone before dark.

Yesterday it was melting as fast as it snowed, so no photos that day.

Today I woke up to about an inch and it was snowing pretty good.

It snowed until just afternoon then the melting began.

 

Sully Saturday # 21 “March Madness”

 

No, its not the college basketball tourney thingy. Mom has mentioned it in the past so that is how I know about it.

I have the let me out of the house, I am sick of winter, cabin fever kind of March Madness. I have been doing my usual eating, sleeping, eating and napping. I have been playing with my little sister, Little Kitty. I was chasing her back and forth through the house.

 

I have helped Mom with photo shoots of her crochet items.

 

I even played make the bed with Mom. I thought she was done, so I decided to lay down to enjoy the sunshine on the end of the bed. Then she goes and throws the afghan on me. She tucked it around my face and took photos. Oooo and awwwing how cute I looked.

Note from Mom: When I am wanting to take actual photos of just him he acts all mad and bothered by it. But if I am down on the living room floor doing a crochet project shoot he is all up in the camera. CATS! Gotta love ’em!ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

 

None of this seemed to help with my cabin fever. I continually begged Mom to go outside. She did take me out a couple of times, but I didn’t stay out long because it was a bit chilly or the wind was blowing to hard for me. Then one day I decided to beg my older human brother, Nick to go outside. This was just a couple of days after the winter storm Ulmer. He let me out but he did not put on my jacket or leash, because he thought I would just sit on the step. I had not seen so much snow in a very long time. My cabin fever had been so great that I mustered up my courage to leave the steps and explore the front yard a bit. Once Mom saw that I was not going to stay on the steps she followed behind me. She took these photos of my snow adventure.

 

Thanks for sharing my adventure and remember to stop and smell the catnip

even if it is buried in a snowdrift.

 

 

 

Digging Out After Ulmer Blew Through Part 2

 

I know I said I would just add to the other post but then I got to thinking maybe no one would go back to look at the newly added photos. So I decided just to make new posts. So here is part 2 I don’t know how many parts I will make. I will just go with the flow.

The Shed Drift

 

 

My Walk Around the House

I did a walk around the house after we finished digging out the shed steps.

Here I took several photos of wind designs in the drifts.

 

I still have more photos but I think I will limit this post to just these two galleries. I will continue posting more tomorrow. See ya then! ๐Ÿ˜€

Digging Out After Ulmer Blew Through

 

I have taken over 50 photos of the digging out process. Although some are not about the digging. I took a walk around the house just to see what drifts had formed where. I took a few photos of the drifts because I like the patterns left in them by the wind. I have arranged the photos in several galleries by different themes. I may not get them all posted or captioned today. So I will be editing this post until they are posted and captioned, so you know what is going on in each photo.

 

We began the dig out early in the morning it was still cloudy and grey.

 

David made it to the ground. Doing some detailed scooping on the steps.

This next group was taken as I carefully walked over to the shed, so I could check on Milly. I used a shovel as a walking cane to get there. There wasn’t a big drift to shovel through. Earlier in the week the snow from the last to smaller snows had started melting and then froze into a nice patch of ice along the path to the shed.

Snow, It Begins!

 

I woke up late this morning for me at 7:10 am, I looked out the window to see how this blizzard was doing. Well it had just started to snow. There was just starting to be a light covering. This was after the rain that had started falling around 4:00 am. My son, Nickย  was up at that time so he told me about it. David also said it was still raining at 5:00 am when he got up to use the facilities then returned to bed.

I was thinking maybe this storm is not going to live up to all the hype at this time. Boy oh Boy what a difference an hour makes. The snow was coming down now. The fog had rolled in too. I could just make out the row of trees at the far end of Mann field. I decided to take the broom and sweep off the back landing just to see how bad the ice build up was under the snow. It was about a quarter-inch like the weather man said it would be. The snow was also only about a quarter of inch at this time.

Well by 8:50 am the storm was now in full swing. I opened the side door to take this photo. I think I will take hourly photos and post the whole storm tomorrow. That is if the power doesn’t go out.
