First Snow

First, our apologies for not posting over the weekend, but we were a little busy.  More to come on that later, but let’s just say that we decided that the Siberian Utility Vehicle works great for day trips, but we needed something a little larger for those longer trips.  Stay tuned.

And, yes, we owe everyone a Rusty P-up-date.  But, hang on, we have even more exciting news.


We are having our first Winter Weather Advisory and first snowfall of the year.  

Ok, it is a little one.  The Weather Service is saying only 1-3 inches, but it is falling and we are wooooooooing like crazy.  It was last May 12th when we had any kind of winter weather, so The Herd is really excited. 

And, even cooler, the ski resort behind the house announced it is planning to open tomorrow.  Man made snow of course, but them being open is great.  Why?  Because they maintain our road down off the mountain (because they want the skiers to come up) and that means we can go about anywhere we want to.  Better than relying on the state to get around to it.

Sadly, this will not stay on the ground.  More snow showers expected next week, but it is still getting too warm during the day.

Excuse us while we go howl at the sky for even more snow.  We want drifts and this is not getting it done yet.

    We take snow in any amount. Our Dad is voting for a larger Jeep for your new S.U.V. Mom ditched her beloved Jeep Liberty for a Commander and we – I mean she – just loves it. She still misses her Liberty though.

    Woo are furry lucky! Enjoy it. We waited & waited last year (our first winter on the island), and alls we got was just a couple little snows, and a bunch of ice. But the wind really howls here in winter, & we howl back!

    Woos & a-roos,
