lots of ice

Yesterday the weather forecast called for bad weather, and we believed it was coming, so Hannah and Leah and FIG AND TAD came and spent the night with us! Figgy even slept in my bed, so we kept Motch warm when the power went off in the middle of the night.
We were happy to hear the furnace turn on this morning, and this is what we saw when we looked outside.Lots of ice!
It looks pretty but it's no fun to drive or walk on, so Motch took the day off work.
I slipped my way off the deck and down the steps to do my duty regardless of the weather.
Fig had to think twice before she came outside, but she joined me. You can probably guess what Tad did. He did it under Hannah's bed this time, but she cleaned it up before he ate it.Motch was going to take this cake to work today for a Christmas party, but since she didn't go to work, she had a piece for breakfast.
And me? I went back to bed.

For those of you who are experiencing this storm, too, how are you doing?

Hi Petra! We live in the Quad Cities and got tons of sleet and snow. It was horribly cold on my paws too, but I could walk on top of the snow. :) Stay warm!

Petra Girl!

Motch sounds like my girl... chocolate cake for breakfast. (Breakfast of champions, obviously.)

Glad you and Fig were there to stop your mama from becoming a Motchcycle. Just be careful when you squat outside. That's when you're most vulnerable.

Goober love,

Be very careful that ice looks awful. Glad Fig & Tad spent the night, I don't blame Tad one bit I would not go out either and we got 3ft of snow, so I was lucky Nanny put a wee wee pad down and I kept my tush warm.
The cake looks pawsome ask Motch if I can come over for some?

Hey Petra,
That ice sure looks indimidating! We got a little ice here, but nothing like that. Ginger is like Tad, she hates the cold & wet, so she poops inside. Then Molly tries to eat it.

Poppy said...

That ice is very pretty, but it sure makes me glad I live in California. I don't even like the rain!


Moco said...

That is some nasty ice. No wonder you came in quickly and went back to bed.
That cake looked good. Grammie had to stay home tonight because of the drive to work. She should have stayed around the hospital instead of coming home.
Where are your gifts? We don't even have any. We don't even have a tree.
