What a day it was!

Everything was soaked in precipitation of all sorts!

Snow, rail, hail, ice pellets. Off I went outdoors to clean off the driveway.
I had helpers. Not hubby, whose back is bad.
The kittens, Daisy and Dorah, were keen!

It was delightful to get outdoors and play in the slushy snow. I could have gone for a workout, but it was good to get out into the fresh air.

The poor trees were tipped over with the weight of the ice.
This is what our old pine should look like!

Poor old pine, branches were
on the ground

heavily-laden branches on the other pine tree, too

Poor bear is cold!

Back inside, my helpers were pretty weary! And they required much wash-up! Buster is an excellent big brother! He gave Dorah a good face wash in the video.

Yes be sure and shovel the wet snow right away before it freezes. You must have had a very nasty day. I don't like the freezing rain stuff...the roads get too icy.

Oh, the poor trees.
I'm so glad Buster has the kittens to care for, and they sure seem to love him.

Wow, you've got winter! The first thing I wondered was how the kittens liked the snow -- I'm glad they did! Cute pictures and video.
