Default First Snow

At first they were afraid of it. Once I walked out, they took off playing and haven't stopped.

Every time snow slides from trees and hits the roof, they run around barking at the "intruder".

Funny times.

I love watching them have fun in the snow...Mine are absolutely tired of it....so am I. It's great in the beginning but by February, ready for some grass to get the running traction in..Hurry up spring!!!!!

Barney'spal, we've had a DRY winter. Lots of rain in December and nothing until today. Unlike you Michiganers, our snow comes, stays for a few days, then melts away. :-)

Ugh! You keep all that snow! I had my share growing up in Cleveland and upstate NY. Don't get much down here in SW Virginia, and when we do it is gone in 24 hours or less... However, folks still flock to the grocery store like they will be snowed in for a month! Never fails that it always happens when I am completely out of bread, milk or dog food... Resigned myself to paying the higher price at the convenience store rather than battle the hordes at the grocery store!

Mikey T. and Soundtrack....we are duly humbled by your snow. Holy cow!

Jnfr, I understand the grocery store run mindset. Our county is 70% retirees. I promise you if you wanted to find batteries, Duraflames or bottled water, you'd be out of luck.

Excellent reason to stock up before the snow hits.

I'm sitting here with Gandy, and he doesn't think it's snow if it isn't taller than a basset.

My 2 LOVE the snow....they especially love to dunk their heads in and root around. When they lift their heads up they look like snow dogs....So cute!!!
