Poor Merv

This was Merv guarding his hole yesterday.
Lookitt, lookitt....you can see his hole....lookitt !!!!
As you can see, we had a little bit of a thaw yesterday.  You can see the paths, and roads.
There is even a little bit of grass showing.
Well, there ain't no more.
The temperature dropped extremely low overnight.
The bit of snow that had melted has now turned to solid ice.  Then we had more snow on top of it today.
Merv's hole is in real danger of filling up.
It might have already filled up as I haven't been outside at all today.   And, this wasn't even our predicted "snow event".
That "snow event" isn't meant to start until Thursday night and go on all through Friday.
That "snow event" mallarky is a joke.
What about all the other snow that has been eventing all over the place since November?
We never get rid of one "event" before another comes and "events" right on top of it.
We should live in Las Vegas, the only events they have are in the casinos.

I was going to venture out to the mall this morning but it was just too cold.  I can't wait for the weather to warm up enough so that just going to the shops is not a major, antartic expedition.
I miss daffodils.  I expect in England the daffs are getting ready to open.
Such beautiful flowers I think.
I have a few tulips in the front garden but they never appear until about July.
In fact, now I think about it, we don't have any Spring flowers at all.   The ground is probably frozen solid for a couple of feet down so I suppose it is impossible for them to grow.
When we lived in Kent I used to like riding our pony, Rupert, in the woods when all the bluebells were out.  Oh they looked so wonderful.
The only thing blue here right now is probably Merv's bum.....and I don't think that would look very wonderful.
