It’s still coming down. And for once the meteorologists had the forecast almost bang-on. It’s a bit of a shock to go from zero snow, having seen perhaps only two or three days with even light frost, to a “winter wonderland” overnight. But it is also something you just can’t avoid when you live in a temperate coastal rainforest climate. Winter means huge moist airmasses smacking into sometimes frigid air- a perfect formula for snowfall.
You know we are in trouble when my post starts off “We weren’t going to adopt another…”. And once again, it’s Irene who wedged the chisel into the cracks in my steely resolve. There were feral (semi-wild) kittens, you see, at the rescue shelter where she volunteers. And one of them was very scared, and curled up and buried his head in her sweater and purred when she was there. And it was very sad, and very cute, and couldn’t she please bring her home?
