Here in Kansas, we're looking at 60 degrees today and then back to around 30 come Monday. However, I wish that colder temp would mean snow. The most we've had at one shot in the past two winters was about 4-5" on New Year's Eve. So I would love to see a deeper snowfall (you know, the kind that cancels school and work?) so that we can see what Mr. Arthur thinks about the snow. The chance to see if he'd leap around in it or what would be a blast!

This is going to be long but I just have to tell it. Several years ago and this is when I just had Abigail RIP and Sidney RIP. We had 2 1/2 to 3 feet of snow just came straight down unlike most of the time when it blows and it's all in drifts.

Any way so about 3 feet on the level. I had to go out and feed the horses and the girls couldn't go anywhere but fallow me and go in my trail. So I scooted through the snow so it would make a better trail and away we went down to the hay yard.

I get down there and put them up on the hay stack after whipping the snow off so they would have a place to stand. I'm cutting the bale and getting the hay and off to the side of the stack is a small drift that's about 4 feet deep and for some reason Abby jumped off into it.

It was so funny her little legs just went straight down as did her head and her ears were flat on top of the snow. I just started laughing and she just laid there not even moving.

I had to jump down in it and lift her out. I laughed so hard at that girl, it didn't seem to bother her any but she didn't do it again. I'm thinking she must have thought it was harder than it was. She loved nothing better than when the drifts were hard and she could run on top of them. She would just take off, oh those were the days.

Default Snow

This is why Gandy is paper trained.

I am thankful Ellie is piddle pad trained since she wants nothing to do with the scary white stuff! All my other dogs love the snow and frolic and use their noses as snow plows! Of course, Jake does not like it when it gets a coat of ice on it and gets "crunchy" but he is OK as long as I shovel the concrete for a spot to go!

As for the "humans" in the house... my husband LOVES it, but he is a "southern boy". Me, I grew up in the Cleveland Area and Upstate NY, I have had my fill of Snow to last a lifetime! Currently, I am freezing my fanny off! and I am Inside with the heat. Honestly, I am sure I (and Ellie) are more "Island Girls"!
