Spring Has NOT Sprung, The Beast From The East & The Red Dot Must Die on the Pet Parade Blog Hop No: 237 ~ Hosted by Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Barking from the Bayou

Pawesome Friday Greetings Furriends

Welcome to the Pet Parade and our weekly news round up!

It's the second day of meteorological* spring.... Yeah right, whose having a laugh???

Meteorological* spring starts on the 1st and astronomical -normal- spring starts on the 20th of the month, and as we're sick of winter we thought we'd go with the early option this year fur a change. 

As mew know if mew've already visited this week, we've got the Beast from the East attacking right now, and no it's a weather front not an actual monster! MOL  

This was our pond this yesterday morning, before we turned the pumps off as the water was getting too low.

Fudge had neffur experienced snow before and didn't like his paws getting cold.  He insisted on accompanying the P.A. yesterday while she was filling the burd feeders and getting the burds baths refilled as they'd completely frozen...


..so aftur rushing back indoors, he had to warm himself up by trying to kill the red dot, and yes he jumps up walls, but it certainly got his circulation moving! MOL



And just to make it all the more interesting, there's still more snow to come as another storm is heading northwards bringing further blizzards and freezing temperatures, don't mew wish mew were here right now... no, we didn't think so! MOL

Wednesday night it was -6c with a 'real feel' of -18c

So to all our pals in the UK and around Europe, we hope you're staying safe and keeping warm, and remember next week it'll be like it neffur happened, hopefully. 

Plus, mew may remember the old saying:

'In Like A Lion, Out Like A Lamb' fur the month of March?

If it rings true this year, it should be lovely later in the month, a pawsible, veritable heatwave compared with now!


If mew missed anything offur the last week, here's the latest posts fur your purrusal:


We'll be back with our usual selfie selection on Sunday, so hope mew can join us then, in the meantime we wish mew all an epic weekend

Bestest purrs and big hugs

Basil & Co xox

  2. I think the weather is laughing at us. We were lucky and escaped the worst of last night's snow. We already had 2-3 inches from the Beast and last night were forecast to get up to 10 inches when it collided with Storm Emma. Half a mile away they got another 4 inches, and 6 miles away the got 15 inches. We escaped with just another dusting to cover all the footprints. We have ice rain now which will probably turn to snow later.
    Keep trying Fudge! you never know, you might catch that pesky dot one day.

  3. We have a big storm here in Massachusetts today. Where I live, we're supposed to just get heavy rain, but the coast is looking at a lot of snow and damaging winds. Spring can't get here soon enough. Stay safe, unless you're the red dot,die red dot, die. ;)
