Make Snow Begone

Do I look like I'm having fun?

Do I look like I’m having fun?

My cat has had it up to here with the snow.

Normally an even tempered little weasel, Gabby, like most of us, is happier when she can come and go as she pleases. But this winter has tested us all.

The boomerang effect has been particularly vexing. One day 70 degrees (Yippee! Let’s go out and dig in the garden!), the next day 25 degrees and snowing (Yeah. Let’s go dig out the car. Again.)

Fortunately we humans are made of sturdy stuff. We adjust. We buy snowblowers. We vent online.

Cats, while versatile in many respects, can be flummoxed by the various challenges snow presents. It’s not just the cold and the wet and the blustery rudeness of it all. There’s also the depth factor. It gets over four inches, that’s like up to armpit level for a cat. Try walking in that, humans.

So, Gabby has spent more time than usual staring out the window, watching her stone avatar in the garden endure the slings and insults of wave upon wave of snow.

Supposedly, Spring officially begins with the arrival of the vernal equinox on March 20th. Gabby will believe it when she sees it.

A little bit of snow never hurt anyone.

Make my day. Melt.

Make my day. Melt.

Gone with the drift.

Gone with the drift.

 

Gotta believe in Spring, dude.
