What was more important was the deck. He promised us a path! He let us look at the wall of snow first.
It was deep!
Then he shoveled a path fer us...
I'll wait fer it ta dry first. Ayla wouldnt even consider it. Ta my surprise, Iza went right out!
IZA: I was really curious about the stuff. It wasnt ezactly WET, but it made me want to shake my paws as I walked on it cuz it was cold, and THEN wet.
I went out ta the end an looked around fer skwerrels and birdies, but there were none in sight. Darn, I wanned ta see those skwerrels tryin ta run around in this stuff.
But my pawsies got cold, so I decided to come back in.
I stopped and nibbled at some snow first. LC had said ta try that. It really IS water, but it made my tunge feel funny!
We have all agreed that we will wait for the path ta dry before going out again. Now that I've seen the stuff, I just hope it goes away soon. LC says it will take about a week. Thats a long time fer water ta sit around. The Big Thing says it may be around longer than that cuz it is gonna snow again before this stuff melts away. How does he KNOW stuff like that?
LC: I gotta mention somethin funny about deep snow. When Skeeter and I were young, we saw the first deep snow, TBT shoveled a path fer us. Skeeter went out an then tried ta hop over the wall of snow. He sank in right to his tail tip! Then he tried to hop back, but he dint know which way. He was thrashin all around. TBT hadda run out an rescue him. Skeeter allus hated snow after that... I dont think highly of it either.
