Mancat Monday: Weathering the Storm

manccat monday brian 12102018Here we go gang, it’s Mancat Monday once again and I’m always glad to see you, thanks for stopping by.  I was just up on the back of the couch for a few minutes.  We had a pretty uneventful weekend and the peeps kept checking on the big winter storm that was supposed to be headed our way.  While it was bad in a lot of areas, winter storm Diego wasn’t overly bad in our neighborhood.  We used to call the local TV types WeatherGuessers but they really are more like HyperOnes since they have more hype than they do accuracy.  We maybe had 1-2 inches of snow and sleet but in other parts of the yard it didn’t look like that much.

We do know it was much worse to the north of us and there were lots of power outages due to trees coming down.  Hopefully those without power will have it restored soon, being with out power any time isn’t any fun but it’s pretty darn miserable when it’s so darn cold.  I’m just thankful we have a whole house generator in case the power fails us.

I was actually quite comfy cozy over the weekend and spent a lot of time in my Cat Beds all curled up and snuggly warm. When I wasn’t in one of my beds I was tightly curled up in one of our Cat Trees. Our fireplace was on and the whole living room was toasty warm.  I hope y’all have a terrific week, catch ya later!

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Being without power does suck indeed, good when the weather guessers or hypers are wrong though.

Glad you all made it through the storm all right. We did too. And we didn’t lose our electric, thank heavens. Have a great day.

My mom gets really mad at the weather people because they hype of everything and it turns into nothing 99 percent of the time.

We’re glad the storm wasn’t too bad for you, Brian. We’ve heard others got a lot more snow.

Brian we also lucked out with the storm – maybe an inch and it will be gone today probably as we get up to 40 with some sun. I’m sure there will be more to come though – EVENTUALLY!

Hugs, Teddy

Brian, they DO tend to make a big deal out of stuff, and although it’s important to stay informed, the panic button that the weather people hit is rather trying on one’s nerves. But, your a cat, and you just nap…;-)

We stayed in all weekend too. I had my budget to prepare for our yacht club and that’s all done. I have one more project for the club to get done and then I can relax a bit.

I’m glad you had an uneventful storm. I like it when you expect the worse and it doesn’t happen.

Have a purrfect day and week. My best to your peeps. ♥

I like that “weather guessers”, yes that is the same here as well, but ours is usually associated with hurricanes guessing. We have one ‘guesser’ here that is so bad he seems guidy when there is a storm nearby. We are glad things are OK in your neighborhood, but we did see there were lots of power outages and we hope that doesn’t last too long for anyone. PUrrs

Brian, we are happy to hear all is well at your home. Some peeps were hit hard with that snow. We wish a bit of it had come our way:(

Mom says she’s glad to hear that you have a backup house generator just in case. It doesn’t get that cold here in ORE Gon in the winter or we’d have one, too. We do get ice storms from time to time and one year it took out lots of trees. I purr-sonally wouldn’t mind if it snowed lots here, ’cause the would mean Dad could stay home from work. Hugs.

It sounds like you had quite the warm and cozy weekend there! We’re glad the storm wasn’t too bad for you, and hope those that lost their power will have it back soon.

I’m thankful that the storm didn’t affect you like to the north of you. NC and VA really got pounded.

I was just going to say you guys should get a fireplace in case the heat goes out. There was a long period of time when we kept losing our electricity and I used the gas fireplace for heat and light. I’m happy it missed you, not much snow fell here yet and it melted which is fine by me. We’re getting some weather in the 30s and promises of 40˚ this weekend so yeeee haaaa.

I am glad the worst of the storm missed you. We had it on our news about the places that did get a big hit.

It’s nice to be warm when it’s so cold outside. My heart goes out to those who have no power at this time.

We got a little snow on Sunday but nothing worrisome. This morning about 45-mins northeast of us in Morristown Tennessee they got several inches of snow. My mother (my folks live in the western portion of Virginia) called today to tell me they got a foot of white fluff. While I think snow is purrty, I’m purrfectly happy to not get any accumulation. It’s okay if it’s floating the air a little just as long as it doesn’t get out of control. lol The cold is bad enough and we’re getting plenty of that which I’m not too happy about… Read more »
