April 19, 2017 7:30pm Cold like winter

Hey furends!

The weather got worse over night. The already cold wind we had these days, got much stronger today and even colder. Central Europe has gotten some really cold weather. The Alps, the valleys in between the mountains, and the surrounding areas of the Alps got a lot of snow. The temperatures dropped in general, and a very cold and strong North wind is blowing. Unfortunately, the fruit harvest is in danger of being destroyed again, like last year where up to 95% of the fruit harvest got destroyed by frost damage in late April. Which of course drove prices for the remaining regional fruit way up. A lot of people here love their regional food, and prefer that over imported food.

Some farmers try to save their trees from frost damage, by lighting small contained flames in between those trees. It just has to rise the temperature enough to keep it above freezing. They are out there day and night, keeping an eye on the flames and watching over their trees.

The streets around the Alps are totally in chaos, as it’s snowing like crazy and many people had already removed their winter tires and are now in heavy snowfall with their summer tires.

That’s the pretty amazing blue sky we had before the clouds came.

The following pictures were taken on Tuesday afternoon at 3pm. I was on my way back home from picking up some food for Murli at the Vet. The cold wind was blowing so bad at times, that it was really not funny. My hands became numb from the cold too. Thankfully I made it home before any rain came. But, the rain never came for the city. It must have come down farther south.

Today the wind is even stronger, and just as cold. This afternoon, someone forgot to close their outer windows, and so the window panes were flapping wildly and banging into the wall in the strong wind, and got busted. Now there’s broken glass on the pavement, right beside the entrance to our building.

At around noon, when I was at my doctors office, I kept hearing the noise of the wind blowing through the branches of a very tall tree, that stands in the middle of the block of buildings. Within such a block of buildings, there are often gardens and trees. That’s how they used to build many of the city blocks in old European cities.

Anyway, because I was amazed at that tall tree swaying like that, and the sound the wind kept making blowing into the branches of that tree. So I went out onto the balcony there and hoped I would be able to capture that sound with my iphone:

Murli is having a lazy day today. No wonder she feels better cuddled up on my lap, or somewhere else where it’s cuddly warm right now. She didn’t even get to enjoy a few sun puddles to hang out in. Even though the morning was seeming a bit more friendly and partly sunny for a short time, it was way too short. Murli enjoyed the fresh air though. She just rather sits a little below the window when it’s cold and especially when a cold wind is blowing. Otherwise, she would sit on the window sill like usual MOL. So I hope you all have a nice evening and you’re warm and comfy with your lovely kitties!

January 5, 2017 Cold front incoming

A cold front arrived over night. It’s bringing ice cold polar air, storm, ice and snow. It’s going to get cold, which also means no migraine. Which is awesome! It’s going to bring the winter temperatures that were normal when I was a child in the 80s and early 90s. We’ll see how long it lasts.

Yesterdays setting sun illuminated the lowest layer of the clouds in a bright red, almost pinkish color. It was quite windy up there in the clouds. They were moving fast and in different speeds in multiple layers and heights.

When I got up this morning, some snow had fallen earlier. It really wasn’t a lot but it was fluffy snow, real snow and not frozen fog snow.

Took these photos when I came out of our apartment building. And I tried drawing a kitty face into the snow (I always draw stuff into the fresh snow at every chance I get, even though I can’t draw to safe my life lol). Poor kitty face is all disproportional… I need more practice lol!

More pictures are on my new flickr account: flickr.com/photos/catlady-natascha

Later the sky looked really beautiful again, with the clouds full of ice and with those strong winds up there:

November 29, 2016 at 8pm Sunny cold day and feeling good

Woke up today feeling just as well as these past two days; no migraine! Todays weather was sunny and we had a clear blue sky, but it was still cold with an icy cold wind blowing. For as long as it’s cold, I’ll feel fine. Murli feels good too and still does purrfect with her new food. No adverse reactions to it. So her body is apparently doing just fine with it. Otherwise she would have had issues by Sunday. I’m really happy with this!

Because I only got a few packs of catfood from the vet, since I couldn’t be sure she would like it and if her body would accept it. But because it’s all so well, I got some more from the vet today.

On my way between the tram station I had to get out and the vet office, I have to walk by the park (Volksgarten park) and saw my favorite tree again, purrfectly illuminated by the sun and still beautiful with a lot of colorful fall foliage on it.

I already played under that huge tree as a little child. Went there countless times with my Mama as a child. This park is full of beautiful memories for me. Too bad it’s not safe anymore to go through. Sigh…Such a wonderful old tree, that already stood there for who knows how many decades before I was even born. Hopefully this tree will see a better time again for this lovely park.

November 18, 2016 – Beautiful afternoon

We had another really warm day, with almost 18°C / 64.4°F and a warm wind was blowing. Absolutely crazy to be able to run around only in light clothing in the middle of November… Murli was happy that we could leave the windows open in the afternoon though. So she was baking her kittyloaf in the crazy warm November air…
