The One with the Ice

ICE STORM! I'm happy to report that despite the ice buildup on the trees and surfaces, power has remained on all day and BOTH two-leggers have been home - safe and sound!

I've gotten a couple of questions about Cali's Tunnel. I alluded to said tunnel in my "Walking on Water" post. Without further ado, here is the scoop! Before the big snow storm last month, papa rigged up a contraption to hang a tarp over the enclosure so that the snow wouldn't mound up on the chicken-wire roof, potentially causing a collapse. It worked wonderfully! Mom could easily rake the snow off the tarp periodically to keep the weight off the roof. The catch was that the mountain of snow created by raking it off the tarp buried the bottom of the tarp, creating a tunnel over the bench.

Certainly not visually appealing but mom said, "What are we to do until the snow melts and frees the tarp?" Cali had the answer... eat the way through making a tunnel!

The snow is now melted and the tarp is free to be put away but the two-leggers don't have the heart to take away Cali's mock-agility station. She'll spend such a long time walking in and out of her tunnel!

It must remind her of her agility days!
