Our Little Town Embraces Winter 2018
It's snowing today! The first snow of the season!
Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas! After 20 years of "Santa on a Surfboard", I'm so excited to see snow.
Ask me how I feel in about three months LOL!
Get out the skiis' snowmobiles, snow-shoes (oh yeah, get out and the snowplow and snowblower and the shovel). Schweitzer is hopeful to open by Thanksgiving. Stay tuned.
My dogs (Duke and Noey-great Danes) have never seen snow.
They are still trying to figure out what we did to them about 6 months ago taking away their sunny 80+ degree weather 365 days a year and acreage to play in. Now stuck in the house most of the time and freezing dark walks. They look in wonder at all this new stuff happening.
What's the big horse's doing in the yard (moose), and why do I have to wear a coat to go outside for a walk? What have you done to me? Why is my water bowel shinny and there is no water in it just shiny stuff that looks like water? I hate being cold by the way! (they have heaters in the garage where they sleep at night).
"And I thought you got rid of all those annoying cats when we left Hawaii (we had about 5 feral cats we'd cared for about 10 years before we moved) and why are there all these new faces on the deck?"
We have become the feeding station for Idaho feral cats. Somehow they just knew that if they showed up at our house they would get fed. How they talk to each other to tell them "food's over here" is beyond me as well.
We now have nine and counting. Mom and dad (Fuzzy Butt and Buzz Fut), and five kittens (BJ-BuzzyFutt jr. Oj (aka"the juice" because it's an orange furball with legs) CJ (calico jr. furball with legs) and two black and white kittens. We have made them cat houses (no, not that kind) that include heating pads in them! We go through about two gallons of milk a week giving them warm milk (really?). The Humaine society has a program like Hawaii where you can trap them and take them in and they neuter them for $5.00. You take them back home and release them. If they're not really pissed at you by then, you have a slew of neutered cats (and not more fuzz ball babies). They are all beautiful long hair cats that look like lynx.
The kittens get to see snow for the first time today too! I think the cat lodge will be extra full tonight!
The little quaint town of Sandpoint has installed beautiful white lights on all the trees in town, and with our first sprinkling of snow, it's so cozy and beautiful here. It won't last, rain and sun predicted later in the week.
It's GREAT!!!..(I know, ask me again in January!)
