In September the folks and I are renting an RV and driving up to Grand Teton, Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. It will be just less than two weeks we'll be gone. We're all very much looking forward to it. I'm reading that power is out to 400k homes in Atlanta...nasty. I'm glad you're safe inside and I sure hope you've laid in a bunch of supplies for the duration. I was also hoping to hear some better news on the knee front for you. Short of another surgery is there something concrete that can be one to improve that situation? Enjoy the beauty of the storm from safely inside your home and be well...K?
Ohai, Deb! I'm glad you still have power and hope you keep it. I hope we will still have it by morning. We used to have multiple snow storms yearly. Then the weather patterns shifted, and it has been years since we've had as much snow as we've had this winter. It has been snowing since 2:30 and will continue until the wee hours when the mix will come. Tomorrow afternoon and evening there will be more snow before it's all over. Hubcat's hernia surgery was postponed because he had an infection. When that cleared up, we asked the surgeon if the surgery could wait until spring break in April. He said it could, so it's set for April 11. May all your frozen precipitation melt quickly. Hugs, Brenda
Im glad you dont have to go out in the storm. I was watching the weather channel last night and they all seemed nervous. This has been one nasty cold winter.Ive lived here all my life and we dont get used to it. Let me know how you make out in the storm. I havent seen Sparky in over four weeks. I hope hes eating closer to his warm spot. We did have a brutally cold two weeks last month. Someone is eating when I put the food and water out at 6:00pm. I think its the kitty I call Happy cat. I know hes not happy. If i open the door or even look out the window he runs. I havent seen the deer in the field behind me all winter. Hopefully all wildlife survived and I will see Sparky when its warms up.
I guess it's no great surprise that Mike wasn't doing what the doctors wanted...and that there's been a price to be paid for that. I hope they're able to get him patched up despite his activities. Becky came through her surgery just fine and has totally healed. You'd never know she had the surgery at all other than her long whiskers haven't come back fully yet. That's all behind her now and she's doing great. The folks are hanging in there pretty well. Knock wood...but it seems like we should be able to do the big trip in September. Something could come up between now and then but all indications are that they'll be good to go. We've had fun doing a bit of planning each week when I see them. In reality, I pretty much have it all planned out. It won't take long to do the rest of it and there's time still. Since we're going right after Labor Day there's less of a crush or need for reservations. I'll still do that, though. Other than fatigue coming easily, how are you holding up? It sounds like the kittehs are a real joy though I suspect there are some Roxie stories. It's good to hear from you.
We did a quiet Christmas and also went out to eat. We didnt want to cook. Fridays blizzard was nasty. Daughter took me to work and home again. Two days of warms and snow is almost gone. Never know if it goes quick or stays tll spring. I watch the Weather Channel and the snow looks pretty. People that dont have to deal with it have no idea. The driving, shoveling, rocksalting, trying to find a parking space thats not a big drift, hope the power doesnt go out, shoveling in freezy temps with lots of wind feels like needles on the face, etc. Track the rocksalt in the house is not good for carpets or pets. Why do I stay. Its home. I probably will move when I retire.For now its shovels, scrapers, waterproof gloves and deicer. (dont forget the bread, milk and batteries).
