The day started on Tuesday, January 28 with us laying in the bed with Mom Paula because the state government office where she worked had closed because of the threat of a winter storm. We wish we could have her home everyday with us.
What are you still doing home?
To be honest, we spent most of the day in the bed because Mom Paula is still recuperating from the surgery and still has no energy. For some reason, Mom Paula kept opening the door all day and that evening, Truffle noticed something highly unusual. Her world outside was different.
Uh, Mom . . . This doesn't look quite right.
Mom Paula then did something she never does. She opened the back door and left it open! We are indoor only kitties, so we were a little unnerved. Truffle went to the door to investigate, but it was cold and a little scary AND Mom Paula quickly closed the door.
MOMMMM! What is this?
We could sense a little excitement in the air because Mom Paula was walking around like a little girl and there was anticipation in her voice. Of course, her office had already announced that they wouldn't be at work again. When we woke up the next morning, Mom Paula opened the blinds to bird TV and our whole world had turned white. Truffle immediately went to the window, which is her usual routine, but she just sat there and stared, and stared, and stared. She couldn't believe what she was seeing.
We urged Mom Paula to get out of bed and get dressed so we could see what had happened to our usually green world that was now white like us. To our surprise, Mom Paula got up, got dressed in multiple layers of clothing, went to the back door (which she usually never uses), opened the door and kept it open, and went outside. The next series of photographs show our wonder, amazement, curiosity, and trepidation of our winter wonderland. The expression on our eyes tell the story of two young ladycats experiencing their very first snowfall. We hope you enjoy our story through pictures.
After we actually stepped into the cold white stuff, we wanted to explore, but Mom Paula shooed us back inside because she knew she couldn't catch us if we started running and we aren't used to the outdoors. Mom Paula then had to go out the front door to get the mail and we waited for her inside where it was warm.
