Baby Al just after we found him.

This New Year's Eve is also a "blue moon" the second full moon in the same month. Here's some interesting astrological info from an online article....
Astrologically the energy of the full moon works to integrate and harmonize the contradictions in the self and others. During a full moon, the seeds sown at the last new moon are ready to be harvested and utilized. Traditionally, the full moon is seen as a time for meditation and particularly for personal issues and global concerns.
During the blue moon this vibration is said to be three-fold. In some cultures the second full moon was considered a very holy and auspicious day. A time when the veil between heaven and earth is thin and the ability to communicate with the gods and goddess is very powerful. It is considered a very spiritually significant time for prayer and meditation going back thousands of years.
Wishing you all another year of friendship, health, prosperity and love. We have enjoyed getting to know you all! Happy New Year!!!!!

Mom made nice snuggle spots for all of us with lots of fleece blankets over us to keep us warm. We don't have a wood stove or any back-up heat for times like this.
These show the damage to the roads going out of our house in both directions! The tree crews had to come and cut all the downed trees before the power crews could even reach us.
It was hard on the older cats and they were showing signs of stress - runny eyes and shivering even with all our blankets. It got down to 38 degrees in the house so the beans went out and got a generator. Boy were we happy to have heat back. We expect more snow this week but this time we are prepared!

We were snowed in for three days but at least had electric power, so many didn't....our tree was up but all our decorations were snowed in our storage unit the next town over...after calling them for days we decided to go ahead and do the tree anyway. Finding lights was a problem Mom didn't anticipate. All the stores were completely sold out. We did find some LED lights at Home Depot. A very cold icy light but they did the trick.
Mamacita checking out the gifts under the tree.
The finished tree - not bad!

We are playing Photo Hunt today and the word is fast - this snow came down fast and accumulated fast!
Here is me Tabitha checking out the snow stuff Mom dragged in on her feet. Our shelter is nice and snug.

I love to look down on everybody. This also gets me out of harm's way from my older sister Chica who always picked on me!
Now that I am 16, I take it easy and don't climb up too much anymore! I pretty much sleep all the time.

Mom and Pop will be finishing up winterizing our screen cat room over the weekend. Pop hurt his knee this week so Mom will be doing the ladder and stapling the plastic over the screen. They did something new this year - adding panels that can be raised on warm days to let air in. That was a nice idea! Plus we have glass windows that we can see out and watch the birds and goats!
