    My cousin is in Rhode Island, he is now not able to find either his above-ground pool or his car LOL! I think your cat has the right idea.

    Hi. Wow! We don't get snow down here. With our current summer temperatures, I would love to swap your snow for a few days for our heat! Your puss cat looks comfy. Obviously a clever cat!

    So glad you made it safely through the storm. Sounds like another one on it's way in the form of ice. I hope NOT! Fortunately we missed this storm and only got a very light dusting. Stay safe!
