Spring Snow Cats & a Special Thank You

WAFFLES:  What do you smell, Boss? 

KATIE:  You mean besides an orange cat?

WAFFLES:  There's an orange cat outside our window???

KATIE:  Spring, Waffles. I smell spring. 

WAFFLES:  But there's still snow outside, Boss. How can it smell like spring?

KATIE:  That's the magic of Colorado, Waffles. 

WAFFLES:  It might be spring, but I don't want any of that white stuff touching my toesies. 

Spring Snow
While other parts of the state was getting blasted with another bomb cyclone storm, we were enjoying a beautiful spring snowfall up here in the mountains.  We got about 9", but the day after we woke up to the most spectacular day. Blue skies and sunshine, snow kissing the trees, and a weather phenomenon called an "inversion."

An inversion is when the clouds are below us. Up here at 8,000' we can see the sun, but down below in Denver it's all clouds and overcast. Sometimes when the clouds are smooth, the mountain tops peek through and look like islands in the water.

This was the view of our driveway out our kitchen window. The snow on the road didn't last long though. By noon it was completely melted.

One of the most magical parts of spring in Colorado is how there can be snow on the ground, yet the temperatures are so warm, you barely need a jacket in the sun. It was warm enough to have our windows open too. There's nothing quite as fresh smelling as spring snow!

 A Special Thank You
We were positively overwhelmed with the incredible outpouring of heartfelt comments and wishes here and on Facebook from our friends and readers last Friday and over the weekend. We thought long and hard about whether or not to share our experience of Katie's scary incident during her wellness exam at the vet. And how to share it.

Your love and concern for all of us touched us more than you can imagine. You are family to us.

Glogirly, Gloman, Katie, and Waffles


  1. Thank you for sharing your kitties with us. In a sense, Katie and Waffles belongs to all of us. Not in the creepy, stalker kind of way, but in that they have a piece of my heart. Sending good thoughts to the Glo-family. :)

    1. Thank YOU, Edie, for welcoming us into your inbox and your heart. 💕

  2. My human has experienced that type of warm weather/ snow combination! She actually went out and got ice cream one day.

  3. All of your experiences and pictures of Colorado are amazing. We consider you all like family and love Katie and Waffles dearly. Happy Spring! Purrs

  4. yes those first warm wiffies are wonderful. Smell the melting of the snows.

  5. We live down in pueblo, better known as the banana belt of Colorado. We got rain when everyone else was getting snow. I love Colorado though, as it's always beautiful!

  6. We all hope that Katie is in purrfect health, and what a scary thing to happen! Goes to show, we must show our love every day, in every way.

  7. We love that spring snow even though Waffle's is worried about his toesies. We are sooo glad Katie is alright. Dad is an RN and says that something we all have to remember is that sedation is serious. Glad the Doc was on the ball.
    Purrs all
    Timmy and Family
