Saturday Snow!

Actually this started last night, and everything was first rained on and then frozen.  It seens to have warmed up into the 30s today and guess what, you guys?


I gotta lake at the end of my driveway!  We'll never get outta here!

The backyard looks a little better



and a whole lot like the same.  But what you can't see is that this snow is full of water and weighs a zillion pounds on the end of a shovel.  Not that we are out shoveling, no, we are waiting for a thaw to come along and take it away!  I am sure we are not done with this little wet storm because it was predicted to go into Sunday as well.  I hope it gets good and cold so our Driveway Lake Freezes up and we can get out if we want to!  Our plow guy will probably come later today.

Such is the life in Minniesnowda and I bet Khyra wouldn't even like this stuff.  But on the other paw, she probably would.

Everybuddy have a good weekend and I hope those Heelers in Texas that were having 70 degrees yesterday are still having fun in it!

Kisses,
Stella

We love snow, you know that, but wet and heavy is not good for our humans. We hope you do get a thaw and THEN some light fluffy snow:) And us too.

Hi! I am Remington. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope to see you often! We are in Minnesota too and yes we have a mess! Ice and snow. Should be fun when it all freezes, huh?
We had a fun day watching TV and eating treats. We did go for a little ride but just to get more treats!

Wow, this looks more like an ocean to me! We're having a sun-shining day in SoCal for a change, so I'm sending some rays your way. Maybe they'll make the ocean disappear on it's own and nobody's going to pick up the heavy shovels. Stay dry/
Twink!

Dry fluffy snow is much more fun than that wet heavy stuff. Bet that lake will become an ice skating rink.

You should come visit us. We've got TONS of snow (it has been snow ALL DAY!!!), but it's light and fluffy, not all wet and heavy. Much better for bounding in and out of! Hopefully you can enjoy it, and your humans don't kill themselves shoveling. (You live in Minnesota, right? Have they ever heard of a 'snow blower'? Just asking...)

For Fiona:

Of course, we have heard of Snow Blowers and snow plows, however when the snow gets as wet and heavy as it is now, the
Snow Blower doesn't want to suck it up! Its just one of winter's tribulations!

Cheers,
Stella

Oh ick! The melt / freeze is the worst. Cold slushy puddles and ice.

Hi Stella
Your snow looks beautiful - all crisp and white!
Ours has now gone but the forecast is for more.
The humans are getting just a little fed up with it but we don't mind at all!
Have fun.
love

Happy New Year Stella!

That's a lot of snow! Let's hope it stays nice, crisp and white instead of black and icky slush ...

On the bright side, spring will be coming soon ... so hopefully the melting bits won't be too messy ...

Hi Stella
We know all about 'the wrong kind of snow' in the UK (an excuse famously once given by a British Rail spokesman to explain why their new trains, supposed built to delay with snow, weren't running).
Well I hope that your 'plow guy' came and that you manages to get out and about.
Cheers, H.

Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

Wow Stella, you DO have a lake at the end of your driveway!!! Your driveway also looks to have the same degree of slope as ours...NO fun when it is icy! The car doesn't make it up and the truck has to be in 4WD.

Stay safe and warm my sweet Stella. Maybe you could cuddle wiff Ali Z? Mom about fell over dis morning cuz Boomer and I were laying by the same heat vent!

Luv,
Cloud

PS. Our plow guy just drove by, yay! (Neighborhood guy wiff a blade on his pickup, BOL!)

The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

Brenda's Arizona said...

Wow, we are CHILLED to the bone just looking! Warms our hearts, but not our blood. Love it.

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Better leash up your mom and go outside. It looks like you could use your driveway as a water slide!

Sierra Rose said...

Hi sweet Stella!!
Hey...what do ya say, we blaze a trail through that cement snow together!! We'd be tired for sure after that! I LOVE that snow...and my energy ramps way up when I am in it... So, I think I am up for the job!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose
