I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas, just like the ones I used to know
This being the third winter the Fuzzies have spent in Floyd County, we have to say that the winters here are every bit as cold and snowy as those we experienced at 7,000' in northern New Mexico. Just as the last of the snow had melted (except for that treacherous 1/2 inch of ice on the steepest part of the driveway), a new snow began in the wee hours of Christmas Day.
Rocky has had enough winter already and spends many of his waking hours baking his behind in front of the fireplace. Some of the fuzzybutts, however, seem to actually enjoy the cold and snow (Grover says it makes the mice easier to track...). Here's a photo of Grover on watch duty a few minutes ago, and a one of the fine snow falling right now.
Merry Christmas to all!
