We're still waiting, no new babies yet.
I called AlleyOpps yesterday and had a good chat with her. She seems in good form and is patiently waiting for her operation on Wednesday.
We're expecting show flurries today but the driveway is clear as I blew the snow away yesterday.

I must be getting old. Yesterday I skipped my walk with Abbey. The wind was gusting to 50k (30mph) giving a wind chill of -33 C-27.4F). The cold is really getting to me now.

Yesterday I had to use the snow blower for the first time this year. We had about 4 inches of the ugly white stuff.
Once again the city is lagging on snow clearing. It sure made my walk with Abbey hard. The sidewalks are just a trail left by previous users. It looks like I'll have to wait until spring to use the walking path the city made. At least the roads aren't slippery with the snow cover to walk on.
