As I promised...

It wasn't a snow storm it was more like a dusting of powdered sugar. The roads back to the holler are ice and the weather people keep using those nasty two words "arctic blast!" Did they sit around and think of these words to torture us? I'm not fond of whoever came up with that term; it makes me cold just to think of it. Sorry, back to fun in the snow. All the dogs except Corrie and Violet (who had their fill of "arctic blast" as pups) love the powdery covering we got yesterday. Oh, the games are the same but they jump a little more and stay out longer before they scratch at the door to come inside and thaw out. Charlie has his stick that both Daisy and Scrappy try to get; Daisy also barks as referee for that game. I don't think Scrappy has any size complex, do you?

Speedbump just walks around the yard looking around and just generally enjoying it all. She doesn't look happy but trust me, she is. She's smiling inside!

At the end of the day Daisy decided to get her own stick and have her own game. I'm sorry the pictures are so dark but it was one of those cloudy, wintry days.

Have a great weekend. Blessings from the holler.

It is quite funny for those of us who are up in the northeast to hear about "arctic blast" and "snow closing" in the southern states. But I understand.
The dogs seemed so happy in those pictures.
Have a great weekend and stay warm! :)

LOL..all is fair in the game of "stick"! We here in NW Pa are under a winter storm warning, actually this is our 2nd day of it and it runs through tomorrow, now who thought THAT up? Back in the olden days it was just called snow!

Fun to watch the dogs have such simple fun, isn't it? They never have to worry about a thing - sometimes it would be nice not to have things to worry about! I bet they really enjoyed the snow! Hugs - Vickie
