Well, it has happened again!
It is actually snowing in the big "H"...doesn't happen often this close to the coast, but it does happen. The kids are all out in the street in the neighborhood, running around hollering and carrying on, some of the parents are out standing in the yard, talking and drinking coffee or the beverage of choice and laughing at the kids. Many of these children haven't seen snow in Houston in their life time, so for them it's a special treat!
The roomies went outside to see what the commotion was all about. They like to play in the rain and seem to like it. But they have never seen snow...and can't seem to understand what all this stuff is that keeps falling from the sky! Both are looking up, shaking their heads as the flakes land on their ears and sticks to whiskers. Swatting at the falling flakes was amusing for a while, but suddenly it dawned on both of them that this stuff is cold!!
C.B., the smallest of the two roomies, just came running in, jumped up on a chair at the kitchen table, put his paws up on the edge of the table and started telling it me all about it at 90 miles an hour. His little blue eyes were as big as saucers, just like a 5 year old on Christmas morning...
After telling me what he wanted me to know, he jumped back down, ran to the door, and waited for me to let him back out! Brother Smoky was outside playing in the snow, and C.B. just couldn't stand being left out. Sometimes, these two are more fun to watch than just about anything.
I doubt if the snow will stick until morning, but for the kids' sake I hope they get to see it in the daylight! As for me, I'll put on another pot of coffee, kick back a bit, keep watching for the delivery guy to bring my new kerosene stove! Kinda like an early Christmas, ya know?
Well, my friend...how about a fresh cup? Just the thing to warm ya up!
Oh, Jim, what a great visual image you have painted with your words today! I can just see the roomies as you described them...
Thanks for the smile!!!
And you take extra care with that kerosene stove when it comes...keep them there tootsies warm AND safe.
Thanks for the cuppa,
Hey Cat...sure do appreciate you dropping by this morning! Yeah, now the sun is shining and most of the snow is gone except for a bit on top of the garbage can and in the shade in the back yard.
I don't like the snow much, but have to admit it is pretty to look at from the warmth of the kitchen.
Have a good day, my friend!
yessir, too bad the kiddos won't see their snowmen by the light of day; woulda been a pleasure to see those twins frolicking about as well-- after all, they're pretty much still kids, too.
I think that is the joy of animals to adults; like the magic of having children around still, but less stressful than those humanoid ones that have moved on to their own adulthood.
Well, the snow may be mostly gone, but the chill is still in the air;think I'll follow suit and go get tat joe...
HAve a good day!
I always get a kick out seeing animals experience snow for the first time.
Cats can be especially hysterical to watch as they try to keep their feet out of it, hopping from paw to paw while trying to keep at least one foot out of it at all times.
Pretty cool snow effect you put on yer blog too!
I appreciate you dropping by today. Yeah, watching these two cats as they experience things for the first time is a lot like having small kids around once again.
Guess it just doesn't take much to keep me entertained these days...
It's official. Hell has frozen over! Ha ha, just kiddin'....
Hey Mayberry...I hadn't thought of it that way, but I think that's as good a description as I've heard.
Appreciate the chuckle for sure!
It's actually beginning to look a lot like Christmas, for once. I got some pictures last night. Pretty.
Hey Ash...thanks for the visit. Looking forward to seeing the pics...
That's beautiful Jim! I agree with bustednuckles...I also love to watch the reaction of animals in their first snow. Our puppy had a blast in it too, right after he screeched to a halt - smelled, looked down and began romping in it and trying to catch the snow flakes!
Thanks for the nice read.
Hey Lydia...sort of reminds you of the kids when they were young, huh? Hope you got some pictures!
Have a wonderful day!
