I am one of them. Visiting my parents home in the Midwest in February, just for a change.

For the first week of my visit, at least, I seemed to bring the weather with me. I even thought I might have a window of opportunity to sort out this mess.

However, this being Chicago, the temperatures dropped and there was more snow. So much for clearing the garden and getting it ready for Spring.

I did, however, have the chance to build a snowman with my brother, niece and nephew.

I saw an amazing full moon.

I celebrated a birthday (mine).

And made a friend - another visitor this morning.

He even stepped inside for a minute.

What is it with me and ginger cats?
