Purrrin for SNOW!

On Dec 2nd I wrote in my Catster diary that we were due a freak snowfall here...70% chance. Well, it turned warm and the sun shone and we didn't get anything.
We've had some cold days since and plenty of sloppy weather but no snow or even any swirly flakes.

Ok, I may be blind but I wanna "see" snow here!
Maybe it won't stick to the ground but I wanna go out in the swirlies at least.

Nine weeks later (today) the weather is (maybe) gearing for snow again. If we don't get it this time we probably won't get another chance this year. It gets HOT here early in the year and summers last forever. To put it in perspective, the last time snow fell and stuck (it was about 8 inches) was 25 years ago.

HERE'S THE DEAL:

1, Within hours we are going to get a rainstorm and lots of hail. It hails here a lot so that's no biggie. Temps will drop steady and it will rain ice water all nite.

2, Tuesday it will be in the 40s and cloudy.

3, Tuesday nite it will freeze.

4, Wednesday morning it will start to rain lightly then turn to sleet and, hopefully, SNOW. 50% chance.

5, Wednesday night...more of the same chance of SNOW. 60% chance.

6, Thursday morning 70% chance COME ON COME ON then it will get a lil warmer and rain. (Thats ok.)

7, Thursday night gets cold again and the chance of SLEET/SNOW goes back up to 60%.

After that....well, no more.

So you see, we have a few periods that may see snowfall. In south Texas if snow falls, even if it doesn't stick, people call all their friends, get the children up, and run outside at 3am!!

COME ON SNOW!

Just got this urgent call!

Sweet mamma cat just gave birth to seven babies in kill pound while on death row. SUPER URGENT!
We almost have enough for Winging Cat Rescue to pull her. Every dollar counts. Let's save her and her babies.

Good luck to you in getting snow. We need some here in our mountains or we could have a drought in this part of Washington!

I got your snow here in O Hi O, I'll gladly send some over!

We understand getting the kids up at 3 am to see the snow. I was 10 before I actually saw snow fall. That is a Texas snow storm where the ground gets a dusting!

Wowie, Christopher, you sure are having some wacky weather! I hope you are all staying warm and cozy.

We have lots of snow here we can send you! I can tell you it feels funny on my tummy fur when I walk in the snow and if I am out too long my little paw pads burn a little (but I am brave Finncat and can cope).
We have sent some euros to the poor kitty and her babies even though it said that the money was raised so I hope that this will help somecat else. Makes me realise just how lucky I am here - all my family could have been on that awful nasty place if they had been unlucky and that just makes me very very sad. Nose-nuzzles to you xxx
