…a black cat dotted with snow flakes.  starshine went outside this morning, right into a flurry -actually, a couple of handfuls – of snowflakes.  she turned all around, trying to make sense of the sensation, but went on down the steps, surprisingly.  not surprisingly, however, she stayed out only about 4 minutes.  I wish I could have snapped a shot, but alas, she is much quicker than I.
