The Up-Side of Our Crazy Weather

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim!  Our weather has been just crazy.  This is the end of January in Kansas, and we should be buried in snow and enjoying icy-cold temperatures!  But what do we have?  The 50s!  It's crazy!  I guess there is an up-side to it, though...

So the other afternoon, it was one of those "almost 60 degree" days (15.5C).  Dad was out golfing.  Golfing!  At the end of ... well, anyway.  Dave and I had our lunch, then Mom said she'd take us to the corner before heading to the Studio.  Maybe around the block.  We'd see.

Here we are way down on the main drag through our area:

In case anyone is wondering, that's not exactly around the block. See what I mean about the up-side? It was so nice out, that we just kept going!

Dave and I led Mom up that hill, and I suggested we cross the road.

"Crosswalk?  I don't need no stinking crosswalk!"

Can you see what's over there?

"Look!  It's the Giant's Castle!"

Some of you may remember the Giant's Castle!  It's a pretty cool place to go exploring; Dave and I love it!  

After a while, we headed back down the hill.  Here we are, checking out Little Kitten Creek:

"I don't see any little kittens, Zim!"
"I don't see much of a creek, either, Dave..."

Given our drought-like conditions and lack of feline friends, there wasn't much to see, so we headed home.

"Pretty cool adventure today, Zim!  I felt like I was in Switzerland or something!"
"Yeah, sure beats going to the corner!"

Ha roo.  Switzerland!  Where does Dave come up with this stuff!?!

Thanks for walking with us!  There really is an up-side to this crazy Kansas weather!

Play bows,


  1. Hey there - your great weather means a more interesting walk....I say wooo hooo!!

    Tail Wuggles, Rubie

  2. That's weird Kansas weather for it to be so balmy when it should be so nice and chilly out. Our creeks are filled to the brim since we had so much rain but that means lots of mud puddles!

  3. It's been warm enough here for an ice cream truck to cruise the neighborhood, mol! Is it June or January? Looks like you two had some nice walkies :) Purrs,

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie

  4. wanna hear nutty! It was 82 degrees here today

  5. Nice walk guys!! It's been crazy hot over here too!
    Mom actually put some sun block on my nose tip the other day..! :))
    But i agree, hot weather is another excuse to go for some nice cool frozen yoghurt!!


  6. Yeah, what does it be with Mum's not wanting to walk in bad weather. Still, I would like to see some cool snow forts so I hopes you get snow soon!

  7. And people say Kansas is flat! HA! We've been enjoying lots of walks too!

    It's amazing the technology today, where woo can be in two places at once! AMAZING!

    excellent adventure.

  9. Looks like you had a realy cool walk. I think everyone is having strange out of sync weather at the moment.I think we are about to have some very cold coming our way.. Hugs GJ xx

  10. I'm sure you'd prefer your weather to ours. We were over 100 this weekend!

  11. Yeah, we've been getting good runs here too. It's supposed to get to 70 tomorrow! That is crazy. We thought we'd have good winters in Virginia, but we were WRONG!


  12. The weather here has been crazy as well. Today was close to 60. People were outside washing their cars in January!
