This is Winter…

This is what happened when a pipe froze and broke:

Fortunately, we were home and heard the water running where it wan't supposed to be running.  If we had been away, the whole basement would have flooded.  Now we know to shut the water off and drain the pipes before we go away when it's this cold.

And here are the outdoor kitties when they came to eat this morning:

One of their Igloo shelters:

One of the heated water dishes… sometimes they drink from it and sometimes they sit in it for warmth.

Before today, we have had sixteen inches of snow this month.  This morning we had three or four more inches, and more to come tomorrow.  Also, next week is supposed to bring record cold, all of it below zero.  It's not fun!  I know they are having record heat in Australia, so I don't want to complain too much.  The weather is causing a lot of people a lot of trouble these days.

Love the photos of the cats Judy - especially the one sitting in the bowl. Who doesn't like a lovely warm bath in Winter. Such good luck you were home to catch the flooding - not good that it happened though. Hope your weather will calm down soon - we have a pleasant day for Australia Day today thank goodness.

I'm glad you're having a pleasant day. We were lucky to have caught the flooding early, and it's all better now.
I wouldn't mind the cold so much if not for worrying about the kitties outside. They seem to be doing fine, though.
