We have a winter wonderland! Khyra should be HERE!
Hi, every buddy! It's me, Patches! We have loads of snow today! Khyra should be HERE...unless, of course, she has her OWN! This is only the second major snow storm since our pawrents moved to Georgia 18 years ago. The last one was in March of 1993 and it was over TEN inches! They had only been here for 4 months and Mom was wondering what in the h-e-double hockey sticks Dad had done to her! They moved here from Arizbona where you have to look at a calendar to remember what season it is!
Oh, yeah...I forgot to tell you...it was raining right before they got here and it rained for the next 3 months and then dumped the 10 inches of snow on them! Our mom was NOT amused!
Of course, the TV channels have been talking about this snow coming for DAYS! Usually, when they do that, we only get a few drops of rain or snowflakes. But, THIS time, it was different! We went to bed last night, around 10:30 and it wasn't doing anything outside! Well, when we demanded to be fed at 4:30 this morning, we had already had about 5 inches of snow.
Our mom was worried about the OLD dog (Penny) going up and down the steps, so a little while ago, she (Mom...not Penny) went out and cleaned off all the steps and put some sea salt on them. She wasn't sure sea salt would work, but it does!
Mom ordered us some pet safe ice melter from Ace Hardware, but it won't be here until tomorrow! That will, pretty much, guarantee that we won't have any more snow for THIS year! She has been trying to find some stuffs called Safe Paw Ice Melter, but the closest store that sells it, is in Kentucky! Yeah, she could buy it online, but the shipping charges are almost twice as much as the actual ice melter!
We both had a major case of snowface, this morning, but our mom wasn't fast enough with the camera! That Penny plows through the snow like a snow plow! Face first! I, however, am a little more careful. I don't plow through it, but I get plenty of snowballs stuck to my furs! Then, when I come inside, I sit on the rug in front of the back door and whine for Mom to remove my snowballs. She just calls me a drama queen and goes back to whatever she was doing! The NERVE of that woman! I thought she KNEW that I am a princess!
Well, every buddy, our personal secretary is off to make some beef stew, now and we will be sitting in the kitchen staring at her until she gives us a bite!
Patches (and Penny too)
