Wednesday Word—Ice


Today, we had an ice storm. First we got a ton of snow and then the sleet and freezing rain came. This is what our window screens looked like when we got up. Actually, the glass panes without the screens were frozen when Pop’s alarm went off. I convinced him he needed to stay home cos I didn’t want him breaking his elbow again. It’s bad enough he’s got all kinds of complications from when he broke it several years ago and may eventually need a fake elbow.

Here’s a better look at our frozen screens.


Pop thought the weather would get better once the Super Bowl was over but that hasn’t happened. We had snow Monday, ice this morning and we’re expecting a Nor’easter Sunday. I know I shouldn’t complain cos it’s bad all over the country, but since everyone else is complaining, I figured I’d pile on. I know that’s a 15-yard penalty for unsportsman-like conduct. It’s my blog and I’ll pile on if I want to.

I have one word for Ma Nature and her climate change. Pffftttt!

Mother Nature has been a little irritating this year, hasn't she?

This has been the worst winter for most of my friends!

Patty Woodland said...

You tell 'em CK. Of course if you stuck your tongue out here it would freeze solid. It's been well below zero for days.

Katie Isabella said...

Oh man CK, what an ordeal. I sure remember when your Pop broke his elbow. OMC, that was so horrible

I admit I love snow but ice is just the worst!!!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Sweetie, we totally agree with you! We're tired of the colds! We want to complain about the hots for a while now, thank you! MOL

You're right - Mother Nature has been off her meds this year. We just got another 6 inches of snow and more is coming this weekend. :P It doesn't seem like it is ever going to end. You and I can both be thankful that we have nice warm places to live in though. I love that last photo!

Pasha said...

That looks like Brrrrr!!!!
Keep it warm CK and peeps!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

You know how sometimes you come over here through your tunnel to hang out with me on your blue pillow? Well, I'm wondering if you could send your Pop over sometime Thursday or Friday to hang out with me while the Human is off at work. I think he might be a fun guy. I mean, I know he's YOURS and all, and I know he won't LOVE me or anything, but he seems cool and maybe he'd give me some scritches.

Katie and Glogirly said...

haha!!! CK...that pfffft shot is PRICELESS!!!
It was 3 below zero this morning. Actually warmed up to either 1 or 2. Woot!
But at least we're not encased in ice.

Molly The Wally said...

Wow CK that looks well cold. Have a tremendous Thursday and stay warm.
Best wishes Molly

We're glad you convinced your Dad to stay home. All the ice, while pretty and pawsome, sounds very dangerous too.

Brian said...

I sure agree with your closing statement CK!!!

Marilia Bavaresco said...

One of the reasons mom moved to Colorado was to get away from ice storms. She'll never forget the year she spent hours and hours and hours getting the ice off her mom's car without scratching the car or damaging the tires. It was terrible. She swore she'd never do it again!

Clarissa said...

We are glad you convinced your dad to stay home yesterday. We had some ice here, but it didn't look as bad as your icy window!

Cheri Wildcatwoods said...

Mother Nature has been very scary this winter - we have gotten bitter cold but so far no snow! Yet!

Love your picture CK - guess you told Mother Nature what we all think of her this year. You can complain - we do enough of it and we live in the north where this kind of thing happens and is expected now and then. This is the worst year on about 20 years here tho.

The Swiss Cats said...

Mother Nature is in a bad mood these days ! Stay warm and safe ! Purrs

Caren Gittleman said...

yeah you have ice and we have 2 ft of snow :)

Selina said...

You can come visit me, CK. We've only got RAIN. Which is excellent napping weather, you know.

Purrz!

C.K, that is one of the best raspberries we have ever seen from any cat anywhere. Ice is so pretty but so scary. Be careful and stay safe and warm. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

The Island Cats said...

CK, that's pretty much how we feel...after getting another 8 inches of snow yesterday. Bleh.

Eileen said...

Blech, we hates ice! Mom says it is furry dangerous for beans, woofies and kitties. You pop had the best idea to stay home with you!

Stay warm and dry.

Could not agree more with your assessment of Ma Nature given that you in the East have more moisture and we in the West have way more LESS than we need just to flush the toilet!!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hi darling, We had the eensiest bit of rain today, but we could sure use a walloping big storm. Do you think you could send one out here?

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

I just say your comment: Pop likes me? Really? Cause I think he's just adorable. Well, if you ever change your mind about sharing him, let me know. What if *I* came over there? Would you let him cuddle me just a leetle bit?

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Ice storm, wind storm, snow storm...
What's with all the wicked weather?

Austin Towers said...

You and me both, CK. Is it never going to warm up? We have had so much rain here, our little island is sinking!! :(

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Thanks for sending the storm. We are loving it!

The hip is probably out of her price range, but maybe a pedicure.

Clooney said...

Yikes, that is crazy weather you are having. Hope it gets better and milder very soon.
