Smile Snow is falling

The weather peeps were right it is snowing tonight. It has started about 2 or 3 hours earlier than they said it would. I quess Jnnfr in Roanoke has a fair amount of snow by now? Be careful and stay safe if you must go out.

Sometimes I love the snow, that is if it is falling straight down and not sideways like we have it so much. Stay warm.

About 2-3 inches on the grass and decks. Roads clear and puddles have a skim of ice. Norman likes it and eats the snowballs I toss at him. Wish we would get a real snow (12 to 18 inches). I would love to see what he thinks of that!

We've had 4 inches today, which is a lot for the UK. Benson approached it in three stages. 1 - scared, 2 - inquizitive (he ate some) and 3 - he loved it. The back garden soon went from picturesque to all churned up by turbo puppy.

Default Snow is falling

The snow in our yard hasn't melted since last week. We are still hovering around 10s all week. I can't wait for hubby to come home and pick up our landmine of frozen poops. He will need some heavy duty tools!! The dogs love to get out there and eat the ice! And Emma peed like a pro on the snow as if its grass! Lol

We ended up with about 5 inches, then it sleeted and compacted it. It was nasty this AM but all clear by afternoon. Now we have "Crusty" snow and neither Jake or Ellie like it!

Had some "fun" last night... had to rescue my husband. (Had he come home when I called him, rather than 3 hours later and a trip to Kroger he would have been OK) He put his truck in a ditch and needed me & my jeep, plus two good old boys to tow him out. At the time the snow flakes were the size of golf balls... We got soaked!!!

Jnfr-- As a raised right southern boy I was taught that Males are supposed to rescue females not the other way around! Sounds like it was pretty fun al things considered.
