Holy snowstorm!

Uh, is this how our chicken/cat sitters are going to have to get to our house?!?

(biobabbler-happy-as-clam: LOVE snowshoeing)

I just checked the weather forecast. Normally, no big. But, now, since we're leaving and asking other people to keep our animals alive (and our quarter-mile-long uphill driveway is not paved), I'm a little nervous!

Tonight: Snow showers. Chance of precip 90%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.
Thursday: Snow likely. Chance of precip 60%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.
Thursday Night: Snow. Chance of precip 80%. New snow accumulation of 6 to 10 inches possible.
Friday: Snow. Chance of precip 90%. New snow accumulation of 5 to 9 inches possible.
Friday Night: Chance of rain & snow 50%. New snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible.
Saturday: Snow likely. Chance of precip 70%. New snow accumulation of around an inch possible.
(somewhat-modified-by-bb forecast courtesy of NOAA, of course)

uh... I just did the math, and the max # of inches of new snow predicted is 30.

I thought this was the FOOTHILLS?!?

Even though we have someone scheduled to stop by while we're gone, I'm thinkin' I'll call a neighbor in case someone has to walk to our house through the snow (we get snowed in) to feed cats and change/melt chicken water. AND ask if they have or would like to borrow our snowshoes and/or snow boots and/or skis!


Guess winter's not over, yet.



  1. Oh, my! That's a lot of snow. Thursday and Friday sound particularly unpleasant. Never mind the snowshoes, I think they'll need a dog sled!

  2. Hee. Yes, perhaps I should ask around if anyone has a fleet of huskies?

  3. that's crazy stuff! but it sure is pretty lookin'! i wanna play in the snow. it's finally nice-ish here in lame MS but it was sooo cold up until a few days ago. If it's gonna be that cold, it needs to freaking snow, ya know?

  4. @Johnny N: I agree. Nice thing about snow is it brightens everything up, so it's like mental sunshine. Snowing now, so starting to get pretty! Glad your weather is improving. =)

  5. maybe they can horse and carriage it in...

  6. DGG: That sounds like a GREAT way to sell cat and chicken-sitting, except for the whole they-have-to-supply-the-horse-carriage-and-driver part. =) I can just hear the jingle bells as they trot up our driveway.
