Snow Dogs…

So, we got a lot of snow.  A. Lot. Of. Snow.  Yesterday in anticipation, our school district closed school for today.  My two oldest son’s colleges cancelled classes in anticipation of the snow storm too.  Good thing.

After listening to the wind whistle and batter against the windows all night, plus hearing one of the loudest crashes of thunder ever, when I woke up this morning (really woke up, not that first “have to get up and stumble to the bathroom” kind of wake up), I decided to let the dogs out to do their “business.”  The dogs, of course didn’t want to go off the porch…not that you could discern the difference between the porch and the sidewalk and the yard!  I could tell, once I got them off the porch, they were going to do their business on the sidewalk. *sigh* I ran to the closet, threw my boots and coat on, grabbed the camera and ran outside.  After cleaning up the snow-walk, I took this picture of my boots to show how deep the snow is (mind you, my feet are not actually touching the cement of the sidewalk):

Next I wanted to take a picture of our “snowmobile.”

My puppies wanted to go in the house, but I wanted to torture them a bit…after all I had to clean up their “business” off my “snow-walk!”  Here they are with snow beards:

At this point, both the dogs decided they were done…

I’m not sure exactly how much snow we have gotten so far, but I’m guessing about 7” at this point.  Who knows how much we will end up with, it’s still snowing and it’s 2 in the afternoon!  I just know…I’m not going anywhere!!!

Perhaps, to thank you for torturing them they will leave a little "present" in your snow boots! :O)

Hi Loralynn, Had a quick tour of your blog. You have beautiful sewing projects, I walk past my sewing machine and it says, "Oh yeah? Try me, I won't bite." But it does.

Thanks for stopping at my blog on the OWOH event. So long.
