Snow Day Diary, Sunday, January 9, 2011 in Gradyville, KY

Click on headlline for photo(s). Posting in progress

By Sharon Whitehurst

The old thermometer hanging in the carport read between 10 and 12 degrees when I ventured out before 7:30am Sunday morning.

Our cats had been sitting heavily on me, encouraging me to leave the warm quilt-laden bed and fix their breakfast.

With the wood fires replenished and the indoor felines satisfied, I stepped outside with food and warm milk for the adopted "barn kittens."

The dooryard was so beautiful with its icing of diamonds that I put on Carhartts and warm boots, and went back out with the camera.Sharon Whitehurst
