Daily thoughts - First snow experience for me and the cats

 In 2010 there was a blizzard in New York. But the previous year 2011 it didnt snow for the entire month of December. Not that Im complaining. Ive heard a dozen of stories, mostly unpleasant, about how hard it is to cope with the nasty aftermath of a heavy snowstorm. Also I have a very low threshold for cold weather. At first its interesting but once it hits the 30s (Fahrenheit) and below it gives me a headache. I guess Im really not built for this kind of climate. But of course I wanted to experience what snow feels like. After checking the accuweather online and on hearing the news, I got excited. I slept late but around 2am there still wasnt any snow.

I woke up to use the bathroom around 4am and decided to also peek out the window.

It was beautiful but I was freezing when I went on the balcony to check it out. Its like that time I stuck my head in the freezer when I was a kid and Id sniff the cold till my nose went numb. I went back to bed and got up a few hours later excited to let my cats experience it too.

isnt that cute?

It was really fun to watch the cats scampering on the ice. They both stayed only for probably 2 minutes and ran back in to join me in enjoying the heat inside the apartment.
