Snow day

We got a bit of the white stuff last night. Sister A. noticed these squirrel tracks in the snow on our back patio. She had seen squirrels come up to one of the cats' outdoor water bowls before, and apparently one of them paid a visit sometime this morning. Alas, the water was frozen solid. No surprise--the wind chill was about -16° last night!

(Biggify to see the tracks better. Hoppity hoppity hop!)

Here's Minnie looking out at the snow. That's as close as she's gonna get to it today. It's way too cold for even well-furred critters to be outside.

BTW, that beautiful quilt she's sitting on is the one Sister A. is making to put on my bed.  :)

Sammi decided to join Minnie on the quilt table. Minnie was not too pleased with that.

It's a good day to stay indoors...even if it means sharing the quilting table...
