Snow Day

January 21, 2009 Sarah Coggins

We had an unexpected snow day yesterday. I’ve found it’s best never to assume anything about the weather around here until you actually see it and was quite surprised to wake up to a winter wonderland. Trent’s company closed for the day and I opted to stay home as well since the roads were nasty and predicted to get worse as the day went on. I did venture outside early in the morning to snap a few photos of our “big” 4 inch snowfall:

Supplies: Whisper patterned paper from Veronica Ponce’s Cottage Bluff kit; distressed photo frames from Kate Teague’s Film Fun kit; snowflakes from Miss Mint’s Winter Sparkle kit; Jenkins v2.0 and 2ps Old Type fonts.

Staying home gave us the opportunity to watch the inauguration including seeing President Obama take the oath of office. This isn’t the best photo, but I couldn’t think of a better one for yesterday than this historic event:

And we had time to see exactly what kind of mischief the cats get into during the day. After a few howls, hisses and chasing, I discovered Cali on the top of her cat tree with a clump of Chester’s fur hanging from her mouth!

After taking the necessary photos for evidence, I checked Chester over to make sure he didn’t have a giant bald spot. No worries. As bad as it looks, he was a-ok and the two were nice (or avoiding each other) the rest of the day.

    OMG that's so funny about your cats....

    I think you should come live here for a week in January and then you will feel like you have no snow. ;)

    The snow looks so pretty! We've had several snowstorms this year, but compared to the other 2 winters we've spent here in the mountains, it's been pretty light!

    Glad you both stayed safe and warm and were able to watch the inauguration - I really enjoyed it!

    Pretty winter layout. 4 inches is more than what we got on Sunday, we got 2. Funny about your cats, I hope Chester is ok.
