We have been celebrating an actual winter all week long (with apologies to our Northeastern US friends who have apparently stolen every bit of our winter). Our low yesterday was -7ºF (-22ºC) and our high was 9ºF (-13ºC) and our wind chill was -24ºF (-31ºC), we had several inches of fresh snow on the ground and it was just glorious.
Ok, just ignore the grumbling of our Hu-dad in the background – we thought it was glorious. So we thought we would share some snowy scenes from around Chez Herd.
Yesterday morning was absolutely beautiful, if a little chilly.
Hu-dad said he let us in and out about eleventy-seven bazillion times yesterday, though that was primarily because he wouldn’t just come out and bask in the perfect weather. He kept muttering that he had work to do, but he really needs to get his priorities straight.
Come on outside, Hu-dad, the snow on my face says how perfect today is.
The top of the snow is frozen so solid that Typhoon can walk on top of several inches of snow without breaking through.
But then you find that perfect spot, break through, and just savor the snow.
Of course, those members of The Herd who have seen several winters of real snow, week after week, are not as easily impressed.
We’ve seen it, Hu-dad. Ready to come back inside.
