Snow Day

Last year in March we got a big a snow storm and guess what - it happened again this March. We were starting to worry we weren't going to get any this winter but it is finally here.

It started yesterday with rain all morning and then 3 inches of sleet during the afternoon and finally it turned to snow and overnight we got 8 inches. We have been having so much fun hopping and bouncing our way around the yard and playing bulldozer in it - that is just the best - you put your head all the way in the snow and start pushing.

For some reason Mom isn't too happy when we come back inside covered in snow and keeps mumbling about wet dogs and wet floors - of coarse being the good boys we are - we wait until she has toweled us dry and then straight away head outside again for some more playing in the snow. :)

Thankfully Mom was able to open our back door just enough for her to squeeze out and clear a path across the deck for us. The snow is very light and fluffy so it was easy to move and sooooo much fun to play in.

  2. snow much fun,LOL. is it enough to dry your long fur with a towel or do you need a hair dryer too? I wish i had some more or longer fur, it's sometimes not easy to have ultrashort bristles as short as eyelashes :o)

  3. Oh that snow does look so much fun. And the game of waiting until you're towelled dry then dashing straight out again never fails to entertain!

  10. SHE remembers as a kid the worst snowstorm they got was in March. Electricity was off for four days...everyone including the neighbours camped out in the living room and cooked over the fire.

  14. Wow that is a lot of snow!!! Glad you are enjoying it. We got maybe 2 more inches, but we have over a foot of it still on the ground. We got ice earlier in the week, so the snow is all covered with ice, and at night it looks like wedding cakes shining in the moonlight.

  25. I have to admit with it being fluffy and seeing ya'lls pictures in the snow, it kind of makes me want to join in with the fun. We only get rain and more rain here at the Hotel Thompson. Snow could be fun - especially with you two! XOXO - Bacon

  28. We didn't get ANY! It was all around us, but none here! :( For some reason, Mom would have put a smiley face instead of a frown there. I don't get her sometimes!
