We had quite an exciting weather event here yesterday......we had snow.....12" of it!!!! The sun is out today and melting it, but OH what an adventure it has been with the dogs! First none of them wanted to walk out of the door.....remember we don't have snow removal things here, snow shovels, brushes to clean off the cars, thank heavens we have Wellies! So we resorted to brooms to clear the snow off the porch about every hour all day yesterday. The girls were having no part of it, and when I did get them out and down the steps, and they stepped off the last step and went into snow up to their little neck, they just looked as me as if to say "How could you"??!!
So I ended up getting the garden shovel and shovelling my yard, so they could walk and find a potty spot. Willo, however, refused to move, she just stood there with her tail between her legs and shivered and looked pitifully at me. I felt she thought I had betrayed her in the worst way!! So of course each time it was time to go out, they all went and got in the crate, as if to beg, "PLEASE, don't make us"!!! It was like pulling teeth!
Hopefully it will all be gone by tomorrow, it is supposed to rain then and maybe they will be happier with rain.....except Willo, she doesn't like anything that gets her feet wet. Having snow here is highly unusual, but to get close to a foot is unheard of!!! I felt like I was back in Ohio on the Great Lakes with all the snow we got there!!! Thank goodness we have sun today, it doesn't make the snow seem quite as bad. I will enclose some photos we took. Until next week, when I am hoping spring will be here....
Goodness Tricia what a surprise!!! But on a positive note hopefully it is melting as quickly as it arrived not like us last month stuck in freezing conditions for about three weeks! I don’t suppose your woofs have experienced snow let alone a foot of the white stuff! Poor Wilo she is certainly not a snow maiden! Hopefully it will all be gone by tomorrow and the girls can get back to enjoying their yard once again!
