I think we have about 3", but the TV says we have 5" and are to continue until 9pm. I wonder if the city cancelled the parade.
A very quiet day today, so I share the cat collar camera
with you. Think your cat sleeps while you're away? Well, some cats got cameras on their collars and it turns out sleeping is only 6% of that time.
I was having a lot of trouble with LJ -- it wouldn't put the pages up -- so I hope the fact that I have this page means it's fixed.Tags: cats

Snow, huh? Hope you don't have to go out, or, rather, didn't have to go out in that.
It's cold here, frost every morning and there's rain forecast for tomorrow evening with snow expected not just in the mountains but also at sea level. As long as I don't have to shovel driveways again (and I seriously doubt that would happen here), I'm fine with it. I plan on running errands today so I don't have to leave the house tomorrow.
Well, I couldn't have gone out. If you can't walk in snow, you can't walk in snow. I suppose the rescue squad could come get me if I had a medical emergency, but otherwise I just stay home. I started stocking up on food for the winter in October and got about 10 weeks worth instead of the regular 8 weeks because we're supposed to have a colder and stormier winter than usual. That means I'll probably be inside more.
OK, my one cat sleeps at least 80% of the day. I can verify this because whenever I look for her, she's sleeping on the futon. The other cat spends his day guarding the food bowl or napping on the window sill. He's much more active, but he sleeps in such a way that he's up against the window. How would a collar cam be able to tell the difference between actually looking out the window and sleeping up against it? I suspect that the cats were disturbed by the camera cam hanging from their tiny necks and spent the day in emotional turmoil, hence all the activity. If the cameras were more like baby cams and the cats didn't notice them, I'd trust the results more.
