It started snowing at about dawn yesterday morning and snowed all day. We were covered by 11.5 inches at bedtime last night. It’s supposed to continue until midnight tonight.

Our dad’s current project for one of the photo clubs to which he belongs is snow photos. He usually takes lots of photos when it snows, but this time he really concentrated on quality and not quantity. After all his hard work, we cannot believe that Mom is messing with the photos for our Caturday Art submission to Athena and Marie’s Blog Hop. But mess she did using PicMonkey.


Snow Day with squirrel


Mom started with a squirrel in the snow photo as she was upset we missed Squirrel Appreciation Day on the 21st. Atop that is an overlay of two snowflakes. The frame was added using PicMonkey as well.

Here are the two original photos.

Cat4-001We don’t really like the snow, so you won’t see any white stuff around whoever hosts our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop tomorrow. None of us have stepped forward to volunteer so, as always, you’ll have to stop by to view our representative. We are going to try to visit more of last week’s participants tomorrow as we know our typist won’t be leaving the house.

If you are in the area of our country being pummeled by snow, as we are, please stay safe and warm inside. Grab a good book, a cup of hot chocolate, a cat or two, an afghan, put you feet up and relax.

Please send some snow to England. We just don’t get it any more.

That was super creative of Mom to use Dad’s snaps to make your art. 🙂

It’s still snowing here … they say 18-24″ when it’s all done.

See you tomorrow for Selfie Sunday!

That’s beautiful! In the biz, we call that a double exposure since now you can’t actually do a double exposure with the digital camera cos you can’t roll the film back.

We like the snow photo – good job – it’s really cool. Our heart goes out to all people living in the snowstorm area – it’s a nasty one. We’re so thankful that it missed Wisconsin, but we hate to see our friends get stuck with it too. Stay safe – you gave good advice.

Snow!! I love snow! My mom doesn’t so since I can’t go outside except on a leash, I won’t see much of it. Bummer. Pretty squirrel art! Purrs, Toby

Cute photo! Okay, I’ll quit complaining about our few inches here. You win! I don’t know what I’d do with a foot of snow. A few inches and we can’t drive down our driveway and our country mountain road is buried! But you still win! 😀

Love that effect and that photo……Mr. Squirrel seems glad he can reach SOMETHING to eat with all this snow! We have a lot on the ground with more coming too – let’s hope tomorrow’s sun melts some of this stuff away!!!! Stay cozy…..we are..

Love, Sammy

That is a fun squirrel picture and art! And it made dog-guy excited to see one up close, MOL!

We sure hope you don’t get buried in all that snow, Yikes!
We are purring that your power stays on too.

And more purrs fur all in the path of ‘Jonas’ to stay be safe.
