The weather person said that there may be a snow flake yesterday and if we saw one to call the TV station. Yes, she really said a snow flake and not flakes. Scout and I were on high alert looking for the snow flake.
The weather person warned us about the snow flake, but not about ice. We were quite shocked at 3 a.m. this morning when nature called us. No, we were not shocked that nature called us, but what happened next. The porch looked wet, but Mama didn't expect ice and it was 3 a.m. and she wasn't really awake. We started slipping and sliding. Mama tried to stop us, but then she started sliding. It happened so fast and soon we were all off the porch. Mama thought for sure that I would be hurt, but we were all fine. It was scary! Mama said that we better make good use of the 3 a.m. potty break and we did not disappoint. The porch was still ice covered at 8 a.m., so we went out through the garage. I don't like those steps, but I'm going to have to get used to them during the winter months. Mama went to the store this morning and bought ice melt for the porch. She didn't think Daddy would want her to use it on the porch, but he said he doesn't expect the paint to last any way.
I think it's going to be a long winter!
Oh, guess what? I am now walking on my foot 95 to 98% in the house. I'm doing so good! I'm so glad that adventure on the porch didn't mess me up.
