Today we are having a snow day. We don’t get very many of those here. Snow? Yes. Snow days where my human has the day off work? Very rarely- maybe once a year. So today we have “winter storm Juno,” which was supposed to be historic, but the jury is still out on that (we have about 18 inches and counting, my human would guess). I wanted to show people who have never had a snow day what one looks like. At least in our house. 5AM The guy is plowing our driveway and I am TERRIFIED!! The only safe spot when the plow monster arrives is on a human’s chest where you can pant and breathe directly into their nose. (Bonus points if your human tells you that your breath smells like garbage.)
9AM Mom decides to let us out. Neither of us wants to go off the porch. Gussy decides to hold it, I pee on the neighbor’s porch. We go back in and watch several more episodes of Criminal Minds. Mom eats a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Mom realizes that she really needs Gus to pee. She is sure his eyes are turning yellow and that his back teeth are floating. She starts to gear up so she can actually walk us off the porch. She learns that she is not the same size she was since she last went skiing so she has to resort to sweat pants. Gus gets super excited about the fact that she is putting on socks
Really, he’s excited. We are both excited, until we realize we need to get suited up for the weather too. We venture out and refuse to look at mom for photo taking purposes, because, hello? Blizzard Mom took this picture of our front door, where you can barely see the stairs! Whoa! (living our whole lives in New England, we still find it fascinating when snow buries things.) We got back in and my best good sister reminded mom that although mom has been stuffing her face all morning, she had neglected to feed us four legged roomies. That Meredith is good for some things, I suppose. My tummy thanks you Mere! So now it’s noonish and there is no reason to describe the rest of the day because we are back to this: There will probably be frozen pizza later though! We are hoping our fellow snow dayers are staying warm!! How do you spend YOUR snow days???
