Snow in Clarksville--The Sequel, By Dragon
Well, well, well. What a nasty wintry morning to wake up to today. I was eagerly anticipating the pancake breakfast, to be served to me by my mere wifey pooh. But, there were several problems with this. Mainly, the 8 inches of snow on the ground. It sure doesn't seem like it is less than two weeks away from the vernal equinox, now does it?
This was one of life's rare opportunities. Wifey pooh was acting like a little child, out romping with Lucy and playing in the snow. That alone made it worth while. She was so disappointed that the snow was too dry to stick together enough to make a snow man. She couldn't even make a snow ball that would stay together long enough to throw it at me. That was lucky for her.
The snow was very deep here at our castle. It was eight inches in most of the back yard, and Lucy was running and sticking her nose in the snow and just loving it. When King Feline Evil Demon Devil Cat first ventured from his Cat Castle, it was amusing to watch. His legs completely went down into the snow it was so deep. But, he did not seem to mind. Prince Not So Annoying was quite disgusted with the entire thing, watching most of our antics from the doorway again.
In order to make it easier for the precious felines to get out of their home and to wander up to the back door, I shoveled their porch and shoveled them a walkway from their front door all the way to our back door. Both kitties and Lucy made much use of the walkway for the rest of the day.
I also had to shovel our very steep driveway. Wifey pooh kept telling me not to over do it, but she never managed to take the shovel away from me and do any work herself. I guess she wasn't all that concerned after all. I must confess, shoveling is not very high on my list of favorite things to do. I can totally understand how people have heart attacks shoveling their driveways and sidewalks.
Enjoy the video of King Feline prancing in the snow. You can see his brother at the end, showing exactly what he thinks of the entire situation.
