It was in the low 50’s today. Meaning all the snow around the sanctuary is all but gone. Burrito absolutely refuses to believe this and sends us out on expeditions until we find whatever surviving snow patch may remain.
He generally prefers a pre-breakfast snow:
A post-lunch snow:
And a post-dinner snow. I’m still formulating how to break the news to him the snow will officially be gone by his post-dinner snow! He won’t believe me and I will probably find myself hunting for whatever snow I can find around the sanctuary. Hopefully I will be able to find a patch I have overlooked, or I may have to break out the snow cone machine.
While Burrito has spent his day daydreaming with hopes more snow will come, the girls were pretty relaxed all day.
Jamie decided to soak in some sun this morning when she went on Young’s Hill.
While Missy zipped about from structure to structure.
Annie spent some time outside as well.
But she spent most of the day inside.
Foxie must have been cozy because she spent most of the day on the top platform in the Greenhouse.
And when he wasn’t demanding snow from the caregivers, Burrito spent his time grooming with Foxie.
Later on, there was a grooming party going on in the Greenhouse.
Jody seemed to be at the center of this party while Burrito, Jamie and Missy groomed her. Though Annie was initially grooming herself, she eventually joined.
Negra debated about joining the party on the platform right below her, but decided not to join.
On the other side of the Chimp House, caregiver Anthony took down the mirror in the mezzanine to perform some much needed retouches. They were without their beloved mirror for most of the afternoon. After dinner, we reinstalled their mirror to much of Honey B’s delight. She just had to see herself, sporting a headband-waistband.
