Saturday Snow in North Carolina

Hi all yep it is snowing in Dixie....

to all our friends from the Northern states this is no big deal

but.....the last time we had any significant snow was 2005 so it is a

B I G deal to us.

Since Madi knows absolutely nothing about snow, she gave me blogging privileges today.

I snapped this picture of the moon at dusk the night before the snow started.


I cannot get picutres of the birds from inside and when I go outside they scatter; however,
the list of birds I've seen today is:

Woodpeckers: Northern Flicker, Downy and Red bellied. Cardinals, Chickadees, Pine siskin, Yellow rumped warblers,Titmouse, Finches: Purple and House, Eastern Bluebirds,

Brown Thrasher, Robins, Nuthatch, white breasted and brown headed, Dark eyed Juncos and Carolina Wrens.

We even had a crow trying to figure out how to eat suet...this is a first.


Nope my camera lens was not dirty the spots are snow and sleet
This was taken before daybreak this morning.

Front porch. It is quite windy causing drifts
Our little snowman says, "Have a chilly day".
Our little rabbit is saying "help me I'm sinking".


Back porch and deck


Taken from our side yard looking down our street


I snapped this picture from our front door. My car is at the bottom of the driveway

Another interesting picture take before daybreakthe spots are snow. If you click on the picture to enlarge you can see the sleet has settled on top ofabout 3" of snow.
Currently we have about 3" of snow. It has been sleeting steadily for several hours.
Looks like we will be house bound all weekend. The precipitation should end by late afternoon but the temperatures will be in the teens tonight and only in the 20's tomorrow.

Not to worry, we have lots of Diva food, clean litter. The bird feeders are full and oh yes

there is a big pot of chili cooking for the humans.

AND we still have power and heat.

In observance of Puzzle Day.....which is Friday, January 29th.

Mom and I have a math puzzle for you all to work out

x+y=1bc

MADI'S Great Caper


Here is my chance....to snoop.
Mom has her hands full she left this cabinet wide open.
I think I'll check things out.....sniff sniff ummm interesting smell....

There is the pot of great smells aka crock pot. Oh let me tell you the
aromas that come from this pot are quite pleasing to my delicate pink nose.
When I'm very patient like I was on Sunday, I get a taste of roast beef.
I love being a cat. Meat is my friend.

Ooops she sees me......I'm really not supposed to get in here but I saw my chance....
Foiled again I better run for cover...do you think she can see me here?

Madi: Shares her lovely white fur


Mom I believe you jeans are tooooooooo black may I share some of my white fur with you?
How about a little right here on your knee?

You don't need any white fur?
What is that, you have plenty stored up...

How could that be? Every time you brush me you put my fur in that zip lock bag to send
to Remington's Mom!!!! AND you are always using the sucking monster on the furniture.
