For the last couple of days we’ve been forced to focus less of our attention on Burrito’s birthday and more on the historic snowfall that we experienced this week. According to the National Weather Service, we recorded the most snowfall ever for our area in a 24-hr period, coming in somewhere around two feet, with much more snow falling both before and after. This afternoon we watched a 6′-tall block of snow, which we dubbed “the iceberg”, slide off the roof, taking a vent pipe along with it. This snow will undoubtedly continue to demand our attention for many days and weeks to come.
But even with this unfortunate distraction, there was no way we could overlook Burrito’s birthday dinner. In fact, it was a dinner so nice we made it twice! I think he enjoyed it even more the second night.
As we dig out from this storm, we’re happy knowing that Burrito has a full stomach and lots of friends to play with, and we’ve got staff and volunteers and plenty of food and supplies. We’ll just hope to not set any more records this month.
