Nope, Not Spring Yet!

I was ready for Spring, but Spring wasn’t ready for me….
Spring Snow!!
I heard it raining in the middle of the night on Saturday and it was music to my ears.  It was DRY here! In fact, this was the first moisture we have received so far this year.  It was a nice rain and we got over an inch.  When we went to Church Sunday morning we saw SNOW on all the mountains around close to us.  It had snowed in Congress, just 5 miles from us but no snow at North Ranch.   The Bayfield Bunch had quite a bit on their new lawn.

Then, on Monday morning, it was still dreary when suddenly I looked out and there it was SNOW.  I grabbed the camera and if you look closely you can see the big, heavy snow flakes gently floating to the ground. It was a beautiful sight and only lasted a few minutes. None of it accumulated.  It melted as it hit the ground.  But there you have it, that’s our Snow Blizzard for the year.  Plenty enough for me.  

Yesterday (Tuesday) we went to the big city for a Dr appointment.   It was cool (33 deg) when we got up.  We had the heater on in the pickup as we drove to Surprise, AZ but boy oh boy, did it ever warm up beautiful and we soon had the Air conditioner on.   Now maybe SPRING can come and stay.   It's supposed to back up in the 80's by the weekend.

We had a familiar visitor back again..

Although I have never seen this kitty in person, I’m seeing her a lot on my Wildlife Camera. She visits quite often. She is a pretty cat and I don’t know if she is a she or a he but I think of Her as a Her. :-)   Since she is a Bengal, I call her Bennie.  She sometimes seems as if she “poses” for my camera.

Bennie is Beautiful!  The camera fascinates her and she gets closer and closer.   I do not feed her...just a little water since it was so dry.  Ms Pat says, "NO WARM MILK".  :-)

Now look at this!!!  She has caught a field mouse and is so proud.  She just had to bring it by the Camera and show us!!!     Good Girl!!! Bless her heart!!

It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!

Thank you all for stopping by………..

Oh, I love the photo of the cat with the mouse. What are the chances you would get such a super photo? We are headed to North Ranch in three weeks. There better be NO snow when we arrive! Enjoy your day. ~wheresweaver

I'm not sure that's the same cat, hair looks longer on cat with mouse even around face, and no stripes. What do ya think?

Great photos of the cats. Any cat that can help out with the rodent population is a good cat!!

Looks like that Kitty Kat sure got caught in the act alright. Maybe we are at a slightly higher altitude over here on the other side of Congress & that's why we got the snow. Makes for nice photos but I sure don't like the darn stuff.

I agree w/ anonymous, doesnt look like the same cat. different hair, different ears different head width. You'll have to call this one Mouse.
Too bad their eyes show up as light orbs.

Looks like that kitty cat is earning its keep. We have one that loves to go out and hunt and one that won't leave the house.
