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.
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."
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
