Mancat Tuesday - Snow Edition

We were blessed with an unusual early snow this past weekend.  It came in over night on Saturday, so we woke up to a winter wonderland on Sunday.  It turned to rain Sunday afternoon, and then more snow Monday morning.  Official total at the airport was 8.8 inches.  That's a pretty good snow for us, so our state was closed!
Flynn was super excited about the white stuff...he kept talking to the windows...

Let's go out Flynn...what is all this stuff?

Sunday morning's view...

Flynn being brave and trying to go out...

We went around to the front porch, and everyone was a bit braver...George is on the porch, Rusty looking out, and Oliver is in the background.

Flynn walked out on the porch, but stayed away from the white stuff...

Monday, Auntie shoveled some and the boys were braver...Flynn is at the top, then Pirate and then George's butt...

Oliver came out on the patio, but then we tossed him in the snow.  He didn't know what to do because when he would take a step, his foot would sink...  He finally made it back to safety.

Here is a short clip of Oliver in the snow.  Auntie's comment at the end...what did you eat?  Is directed at Flynn, who ate something in the yard and was coughing it back up!  He's fine.

Rusty was tossed out in the snow too...he was a little quicker to figure out how to get back to dry land.

These boys are as accustomed to snow as some of you are...we don't know how to handle it for months on end!


  1. Brrr! I live in southern California, so I would probably not enjoy the snow as much as your crew did!

  2. Tossed them into the snow?! Nicki and Derry want to know how you'd like to be tossed into the snow. :-D

    We loved Oliver's paw shakes, once he made it back. "Get this stuff off of me!"

    That's a lot of snow to get, it would be even for us. OMC, hurry up, Spring!

  3. Oliver made me laugh shaking his paws like that. We don't often get snow, but when we did Eric and Flynn would just plough right on through it. They wouldn't let anything prevent their walks in the fields.

  4. Wow! That’s a lot of snow! And how brave of them to go out in it. We avoid the snow.

  5. you have a lot of snow! I have never been in snow and I sure don't want to start now. Love, Cody

  6. That was a lot of snow. Glad the boys got to investigate.


We love comments...meows and purrs please!
