Snowy Day, Part 3

MARLEY:  I went out the next morning after Second Breakfast and saw some birdies.  The surprise was that Ayla came out ta look around.  She almost never comes out in weerd weather.  But as ya can see, the path was completely dry, so that is probly why.
I wanted ta get to bare ground in the yard.  I could see there was some by looking over the edge of the deck.

I like ta do my business  outside sometimes, ya know?  The litter boxes were all clean and all, but real dirt is comforting.  And it isnt just me, Iza is the same way.
So I went to the stairs, where I got surprised again.  They were NOT shoveled, which made things awkward.  And ya see what I mean by Iza having the same thoughts.  There she is waiting ta see how I get down.
TBT had shoveled the stairs the first day, but as I mentioned in the earlier post, it did snow again, and TBT hadn't shoveled the stairs a 2nd time.  So, I tried walking on the skinny edge...
THAT dint werk!  And, in fact, what ya see is me trying ta walk backwards.  Not something we kitties are good at.  When ya cant see where yer paws are going, it makes ya nervous.  Well, ME annyway.
I ended up with one paw deep in the snow and (not that a mancat like me would panic), but I decided to suddenly turn and jump running for the house shaking my snowy paw all the way.  Iza ran too.

I sure hope it all goes away soon, but TBT is not too sure.  An he knows stuff.  I mean, he licked a finger and stuck it up in the air and said it was gonna get really cold again soon, so the snow might last a while.

And then that night, we heard the TV weather guessers say it was gonna get even colder for a few days.  He knew!  How does he do that?

He did promise to push the snow off the stairs tomorrow so we can get down to the bare dirt unner the deck.  Which will be nice.
