We think we know why Mom is not a big fan of winter.
Well, we’re not big fans either.
True, but just think what we’ve been through in the past few days. Last week the actual temperature was -30 and the windchill was around -50.
Isn’t most wind chilly? At least in the winter. That’s stupid to measure how chilly the wind is. Humans……..
Anyway, then over the weekend it got warm and things started melting and it even rained.
Not a good plan, Mother Nature.
That’s right. Mom went out to her car on Monday morning and before she knew it, she was kneeling in the driveway and couldn’t get up. All around her was ice covered with water and there was no traction.
We promise we didn’t laugh.
I may have giggled around the cookie jar…….just a little. But I only did that when I knew Mom was okay. Even she admits that she looked kind of funny trying to get up. She told us later that she kind of scooted over the water-covered ice so she could grab hold of her car. Maybe if she had paws instead of feet with shoes on them, she might have been able to get some traction. She got up, looked at us, kind of smiled and headed to work.
Now today the angels are busy dusting and they have feathers and dust flying all over the place. Mom’s view at work got shortened with all that stuff flying around.
They must be working really hard ‘cuz the dust and feathers are flying all over the place. Everywhere we look outside, it’s white. Sometimes we can’t even see across the street.
I bet Mom wishes she had stayed home with us.
By the time Mom got home tonight, this is what it looked like.
Mom……….the angels just dusted up a storm today!!!
