The Shovel Inn

High on the low spot of a North Carolina mountain top

A narrow trail through the heavy wet snow is examined by a creature in a much better mood upon my return this year than last

When they were left out in the elements with a dispenser of food.

With a little encouragement it was felt safe enough to venture outside.

They are no dummies and were quite content in the snug accommodations of the Shovel Inn while the Christmas blizzard of 2010 raged around outside.

It is good to be home with all systems go, even if I had to shovel my way in.

Hi Christopher! Glad you got home safely and your kitties sure looked happy to see you! It doesn't look like you had much meltage the last few days, and I know you have a very long driveway....ugh! No matter how much fun we have when we travel, it is always so nice to come home!

Welcome Home. So glad you got back ok. Seems there was quiet a bit of the white stuff. Do be careful with that shovel.
So glad the kitties are ok. How about the wild kitty?
Take care, stay warm.

It's amazing to compare your snow with my (relatively) nearby dusting. So cute to see the cats walking on that path!
