Snow Event...

That's right, last week the weather lady said "blah, blah, blah, this snow event" in her forecast for the weekend. That caught my attention and I commented to JP "it's gonna be AN EVENT" being sarcastic, of course. All that to say, she was right, it was an event. We got 6-8 inches of snow on Friday then that night we got "wintry mix" and then on Saturday a little more snow. The weather people here must do some kind of touchdown dance when they are right in our area because it's so hard to predict what these storms will do.

Anyway, we had fun and the dogs really had fun. I'm gonna do a couple of posts because we took lots of pictures. Today, we'll feature pre-snow play.
They never get tired of the stick game and look like they've been dusted with powdered sugar.

Here comes Scrappy. She is SO FAST!! It looks like she's flying.

One of the first things Scrappy and Charlie did was catch a bird. So, we had to call everyone in (Charlie came in but Scrappy had to be made to drop her catch.) What is it with them catching birds lately? Are the birds slower in the winter? Then I had to suit up and trudge up the hill and throw dead little birdie over the fence. Of course, that was JP's chance to grab this wonderful picture of me (there were more pictures but really is this harassment necessary?!)

Wintry blessings from the holler!!


YD, sometimes with Samantha and June said...

No wonder we get no snow up here because you guys have "kidnapped" the snow down south! :)
Ya, what is with your dogs catching the birds lately? You would think all other birds will learn about the "no-fly" zone. Maybe some of them didn't get the memo.

You look so cute all bundled up, lol! When the game of stick is over and the treadmill has been used there are birds to be caught, what a life:)

Woohooo!!! Yeaoooo! Love the pre-snow pix... Pretty amazing birdie catch! How does that happen?
Can't wait for more "weather event" photos!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

Great pictures - they do indeed look like they've been dusted with powdered sugar. Great picture of you too! Don't feel bad - I look like giant mummy for my walks with Kane at 5am....complete with headlight!
I'm wit YD - you would figure the birds would know about the no fly

Cute pictures Mrs. JP! Even of you!

I love the treadmill idea. I saw that somewhere - maybe Dog Whisperer, too. My daughter's little hyper-pom might benefit from a stroll on the treadmill!

Great pictures, both of you! :)
Looks like you got lots of snow. That was quite a weather event!
