Snowpocalypse II

They called the first one “Snowpocalypse.”  This one is way bigger than that one.  I checked with a native-born Arkansan and there’s never been one like this in his memory.

Compare the chair from last time.

So, again, pictures of Bugs first, followed by Nature.

And again beatitudes to friends, this time ones who’ve braved Australia, to make sure I get to where I need to go.    Subaru is big around these parts.  Thank heaven.

Here’s us getting ready to go outside to take pictures and romp around.  This is why it takes twice as long to get dressed these days.  I mean the cat, not the layers.

He nailed me good with one of these.  Not his fault.  I meant to be faster getting my foot *inside* the boot, but I was laughing too hard.

This is what we’re wearing in Arkansas these days.

It’s another world away from the footwear Sheepish Fashionista is writing about — “flatforms.”  For $895.00.  At least that gets you a pair (or I assume so).

And this is what it was like outside:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did you hear the “thump” when all this fell?  It happened within a matter of hours this morning.  At least no bills will be getting through for a while. . .

 

And of course regular readers will want to know what Australia looks like today.  Here’s a reminder of what it looked like the other day.

 

Now here it is today.

 

This car made it through.  Volvo, not Subaru.

 

 

My car’s not going anywhere until the spring thaw.

      Now that you mention it, Caren, it *does* look like a paw! We have cats on the brain, no?

      I really appreciate your sympathy. “Surprise” 19 inches indeed! Although I read on FaceBook we may have got 23 inches. Reminds me of my Michigan childhood. The most fun in the world was to walk on plowed sidewalks w/ snow on either side over my head.

      Are we supposed to look forward to more of these, though? In Arkansas? Is it age? or global warming? Only time — and more age — will tell. We may never know.

    I know it must be very hard there for you at the moment, but the snow is giving you some wonderful photos! I love the ones of the mail boxes. And your poor car definately won’t be going anywhere for a while.

    Oh I’m so glad you like the pics. I have more — I *must* do some work, but with your encouragement I’ll look for a way to find my way back & share them too —

    Yah. My car is resting. She needs the break. 164,000 miles on her when the odometer broke, so long ago I can’t remember — so now? Who knows. Rest for the girl! She’s earned it. So have I, of course, but no rest for the wicked.

  5. Ah….if a snow covered mailbox would stop the bills from getting through, I would welcome Snowpocalypse with open arms!

    Thanks for visiting the Responsible Pet Ownership blog. I’m following you now!

      Dear Responsible Pet Ownership Human, are you SURE about those open arms?? I haven’t been able to budge under my own power for 10 days now! When I get to my mailbox, the bills will have piled up! Argh!

      And thank you for leaving your comment. We are connected now & that’s great.
