Well, I made it through my first Texas winter, and my first snowstorm. I have to say that I didn’t really see much difference between that and a normal day, with two exceptions. ALL of my humans were home all week (and the littlest human really enjoyed getting to play with me more than normal).
Everybody thinks tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers and Okra for their garden, but a refreshing change might include beets. White, golden, and orange varieties exist, but most are familiar with the red beet, so let’s talk about that one.
Warmer temperatures over the weekend and continuing this week melted most of the snow from the state’s roadways and roofs. But Texans are still dealing with broken pipes that flooded homes and businesses, damaged municipal water systems, and continued power outages in scattered areas, mainly in East and Central Texas.
In case you live nowhere in Texas, or have been on another planet for the last week, IT WAS COLD! And for the record, I don’t do cold! Ok, let me rephrase that: I will do cold but only when it involves trips to the mountain to snow ski (and I can come home after about a week).
So, most of you know I am a young cat, so you might realize that this is my first experience with the human thing called “snow.” Let me tell you, I am not sure that I like it!
