Suffering from Snow Blindness

On Christmas night, we got hit with about 9″ of snow, along with gusting winds and a blizzard warning. They weren’t kidding – our cars had cornices by the 26th! The weather outside was frightful, but the fire was delightful. Not only did we have some corn for popping, but we also had fixins to make a mean Mai Tai. In other words, we survived just fine, thanks for asking.

Frightful:

Car cornice!

20121226. There is a car under there, I promise. Christmas night blizzard.

There really is a car under there.

Delightful:

Snow day with my best girl.

Birdie kept completely exhausting herself in the snow. Exhausted puppy = adorable, well-behaved puppy.

Just as the snow started getting doggified in the backyard yesterday afternoon (you know – packed down, a little muddy, and, ahem, COLORED in certain spots), the weatherman told us we might get another 1-2″ last night. Yeah… more like 4″ on top of what we already had. I know, I shoveled that beautiful fluff!

Last night:

20121228. Snowy evening.

Did I mention beautiful? What a wonderful sight to wake up to this morning.

20121229. So we got a tad more snow last night.

    • It has been chilly, but we were so happy to get a good, proper snow this year! Last year was so warm, I don’t think it snowed and stuck once all winter. And thank you – we sure do like the little girl. 🙂
