Our winter here has been very mild. We received a couple of snow falls back in early November, but have only received dustings of snow since then. Several times, Hu-dad has told us we should wake up to some snow, but they have all been broken promises. So when he told us we should expect some snow on the ground Friday morning, we had our doubts.
And those doubts were accurate. Oh, sure, we had frozen precipitation, but the wrong kind.
Snow, Hu-dad. We demand snow.

Requiem for a Rabbit
May 21, 2023
A poor bunny made a bad decision, so I wanted to pay my respects with a requiem for a rabbit. My dogs plotted their own event.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
Missed A Rabbit By A Hare
In a fumble of Sibe Quentin security, Typhoon almost caught another rabbit, though Hu-Dad has kidded him that he missed it by a hare.
Looks like hu-dad should rent a snow machine! Or borrow one from the ski resort nearby!
No snow here either! We live in the foothills and they have closed the ski resort up above us because of no snow. Cierra and Maggie are very disappointed! (We also haven’t had much rain here either In Cali. looks like we are headed into our 4th yr. of drought)
Time to hire a snow machine!
