Need an excuse to not do something? Is an essay due, the laundry needs to be hung, or you're hungry but can't be bothered to get up? Here's the perfect excuse. You must look at these GIFs now. Heh heh.
OK, most cats don't like this freezing white thing we hoomans call "snow." However, there are a few brave souls who not only endure this kind of weather but actually love it! We're talking Norwegian Forest Cats, Maine Coons, mostly those long-haired fluffs who were seemingly built for such weather.
Everyone else? Nope. Don't like it, don't want it. Well, maybe for 3 seconds but that's plenty to show the hooman how brave you are before bolting back indoors and finding that toasty spot by the heater!
Just in case you missed it, Newfoundland was overrun by a snowstorm of epic proportions. Yes, we're talking 30 inches of snow on Friday, which was reported from St. John's International Airport. Residents have been left to quite literally dig themselves out from the storm. The Canadian Armed Forces even stepped up to help in the efforts to clear up all the snow, and help out residents in need. Outside of all that chaos, the storm definitely made for quite the array of hilarious and crazy images. Nature is a wild beast, man.
Sometimes there are important questions we must ask ourselves in this life. Like, how are stop motion animations made? Or does lightning get jealous of fireworks? Or, how do car doors actually work? If these deep questions are on your mind, look no further, o weary traveler. We collected some slightly educative GIFs that might answer one or two of your questions. If not, they're still great to look at. Have a peep.
What's the first thing you thing of when you think of Winter? Snow!
Snow is pretty darn magical, and might be the best thing to come out of Winter (we're not talking about full-on blizzards here).
What could make snow even more magical? Animals. Wildlife enjoying Mother Nature's beautiful snow-filled wonderland.
And while we watch this, with our blankets wrapped around us and heater besides our feet, we can comfortable say that this BBC Earth special, 'Best of Animals in the Snow' is particularly a winter-inspired treat!
