Snow and Ice Pictures

With the ice mixed into the snow this weekend, we did not get out and do any trails – much too difficult to walk.  We pretty much stuck to walking around where we live since the road had been plowed.  Hope you enjoy our scenery.

House near Chez Herd - Brand new and for sale - Come be our neighbor

House with a metal roof. We love how the snow slides off this roof

As the snow slides off the metal roof, it creates these "waves".

Red Team does not notice the scenery, but focuses on the walk.

    Hey, that looks like a nice house for us. At least it has snow. Do you know if it comes with it’s own Sibe Quentin included?

    I’d love to be your neighbor, but I don’t think I could handle so much snow and ice and cold (Storm said she’ll be right over on the other hand). The ice/snow is cool the way it slides off the metal roof. It’s doing it over here too. Mom watched it slide off the bank roof next door to where she works and land on someone’s truck at the ATM. She said it about gave the poor woman a heart attack. People around here just aren’t aware of the dangers of snow. 🙂

    I always love when the sun its ice on the trees. Nothing like it.
    Metal roofing is common in these parts. Just don’t be standing under it when the snow lets go! 🙂

    Juno called the Real Estate Agent for that house. She was disappointed that her income level and a deposit of chewed up Danskos did NOT meet the requirements for purchase on the home. She’d very much like to hike with your herd and be back up for Kiska and QN in keeping the boys in line. She also wants swimming lessons from Cheoah.

    Wooos Herd! That looks awfully cold, do woo guys get cold ever or does your fur grow thicker than mine,not that I get cold, but here in sunny FL it usually stays above 50 at night…in the winter….

    Red Team you are so disciplined! I would insist on stopping to smell the roses (so to speak)…and would wander along casually checking things out! You guys are ALL business.

    Yeah it looks soooo cold there! I’m a little dog… I’ll probably need to wear half of Lorenza’s coats just to keep as warm as you guys.

    The house looks lovely but it looks very cold there! I don’t think I have quite the coat that you all have!

    take care

    My mum likes the look of that house. It looks too cold for me though.

    The scenery was magical but I missed my sibe-furiends, until the last shot 😉

    What a nice house! Maybe I can talk mom and dad into moving there so I can finally have some snow! 🙂 Hmm…mom is making faces at me. Something about being cold!

    How beautiful are those trees!!! But we know how treacherous ice can be too. Nice house, too bad we can’t get the humans to think about moving.

    Go, Reds, go!!!

    I would love to move! What beautiful scenery!!!!

    You need some Yak Tracks or sheet metal screws in your boots! They make me feel like I have super powers, walking uninhibited across ice. Around here, everyone wears them, because the sun melts the top layer of the snow each day, leaving behind ice each morning.

    Beautiful photos. I love the icy branches against the blue skies. But, of course, the herd cared only about getting moving and following the scents!

    Cute houses — they remind me of the ones on the street out in the woods in New York where we used to live!

  21. jack & moo on February 1, 2010 at 10:05 am

    Beawootiful glistening trees! Nice to see somepup has snow, ours seems to have vanished furever….at least till next year? Shucks, mom & dad just bought a new house, too bad they didn’t know about the one near woo guys. It would really be fun to be neighbors!

    jack a-roo & moo too

    Haha, Red Team, i love it!

  23. Bentley on February 1, 2010 at 8:52 am

    The house looks very nice. The ice does not look nice. Well, it’s pretty to look at on the trees, but not so good on roads!

View from the Ranch

The view from the ranch, our neighbors, is awesome, especially as the leaves begin changes and the cold weather rolls in to our mountain.
