In the Deep Freeze
It's COLD here! Temps in single digits and wind chills below zero. The snow we had on Saturday won't melt because it's too cold, and we expect more snow this weekend.
I used to live in Northern Ohio, then Chicago. Both areas are on the Great Lakes... so they get the infamous "lake effect snow". We have also experienced lake effect snow when visiting my sister in upstate New York and my in-laws in Michigan. I hate lake effect snow. It's just ridiculous. Here we measure it in inches, but there they measure it in feet. Horrible!
Well, this week they say the lake effect snow area is so massive that it's making it all the way to Kentucky. I can't escape it! Well, maybe if I manage to move to Hawaii. Maybe some day...
My main concern is the kitties that live outside. They need shelter from this cold. I bought one of these Indigo Igloo dog houses and put some bedding inside for them.
Here it is, on my deck, before the snow fell. The little cat we named "Spot" is checking it out. I have seen three of the cats all curled up together in there. But I still worry about them every night while it is so cold.
