Ice, Ice, Baby

School is out today because of the ice covering the roads. Freezing rain fell most of the night, and we awoke to a shimmery landscape. Chores were interesting today because I had to spend a little more time getting gates and doors open which had frozen shut. The ice put a sparkly coating on everything that was exposed to the northwest wind last night. I'm not complaining, because I'd rather play on the ice than in the sweltering heat of September. That will come soon enough.

Smokey, on the other hand, doesn't appear to have ventured out of her cat door in the barn. If I know her, she's curled up in a chair on a lambskin rug.
