My car was definitely not happy with the cold temperatures. It didn't feel warm in the car until I actually arrived at the office 20 minutes later.
We've also gotten a fair amount of snow lately. The past few years, we haven't really had a lot of snow in upstate NY. Even my parents who live in the "snow belt" didn't get a lot of snow the past two years. I guess mother nature is starting to make up for it this year.
This past weekend we had a storm come through that dumped about 14-inches of the white stuff. It was nice that it was light and fluffy snow versus heavy, wet snow (aka heart attack snow). My husband cleared our driveway with the tractor (we have a snow thrower on the back of it), while I shoveled the sidewalk and back porch.
Afterwards, we came into find this...
Yes, that is our cat. As CLOSE to the fire as she can get without actually cooking herself. We're still not sure if she maybe roasted her head a little bit since she was so close.
She actually picked her head up a bit when we came and then we could watch her drift off again and slide back down to laying sideways. We did have to get a wet paper towel when she woke up so that we could wipe the ash off her. The side of her head was gray from the ash on the hearth (standard by-product of a wood-burning fireplace).
I hope everyone else is staying warm and those of you in the warm parts of the country/world.... ENJOY IT! :c)
