Thursday Thirteen #10

Thirteen Reasons why the Groundhog was wrong

1. We didn't have snow until he said we'd have an early Spring. Now we've got snow and LOTS of ice.
2. We had temperatures in the 60's in early January and now we're lucky if we reach the 20's.
3. There are little pools of water in the kitchen that the people leave behind from their shoes. Water should be in a bowl, not on the floor.
4. Whenever a door opens to Out of Doors, this horrible blast of cold air makes me turn and run away.
5. The Lap Lady's hands are freezing when she pets me so I wriggle to get away.
6. My ears are FREEZING. The tips never get warm.
7. I haven't seen much daylight lately- just overcast gray skies and the sun isn't out very long.
8. That snow throwing thing that makes such a racket keeps coming out. That thing sounds more terrifying than a vacuum!(and you can hear it 2 blocks away)
9. While I love the Lap Lady being around, she wants me in her lap too often because I'm warm. Hello, I'm not giving you my highly prized warmth!
10. Chase is really cranky because even he is cold so he doesn't move around a lot so I'm not getting too much play time.
11. Latte continues to lie on my head for warmth.
12. Statically charged cat fur makes playing/snuggling/being pet a nightmare.
13. One thing I don't mind- breakfast is served in the heat-box because Latte & I won't eat if the heat is on because we have to go absorb as much heat as possible.

I hope it warms up for you soon! All that cold doesn't sounds very nice. I'm lucky that it has been a warm winter in Munich so far. #12 doesn't sound very nice - I'm glad I don't have to worry about that since I have no fur.

I hope that you get some warm weather soon!

Brrrrr! That crazy groundhog Phil, doesn't know the weather from a hole in the ground. I hope you stay warm. Static cling hair doesn't sound fun!

I think that groundhogs are stupid. Who wants to listen to weather advice from a rodent like that?

I don't think that you want to know that folks are wearing shorts and the high today was about 73 degrees.

I boy, my mom is going back there next week, and I'm worried about her! It was 70 degrees here today. It will be colder at our mountain house this weekend, but I don't think it will be that bad. Try to stay warm dear Kaze. Tara
