Finally . . . Snow

We have been complaining loudly that we have seen very little snow since November. Normally, we would have had several snows by this time of year, but, finally, we have some snow of the ground again. Sure, it was only about 2.5″ and normally we would be unimpressed, but we were happy to have any snow. Hu-dad only took 145 photographs of us (really – 145), so here are a few.


Sniff! Snow smells so good.


And I thought the snow was never returning.


Queen Natasha is like the post office – snow will not keep her from her appointed rounds.


And Miss Cheoah was enjoying testing that new knee (while Hu-dad cringed at every step).

But you all know who enjoyed the snow the most, right? The Little Prince had an absolute blast.


Feels so good!


And big brother Frankie really earned his keep.


Did you know snow had magical powers that create Siberian Husky Levitation ability?

    Mom ‘n Ice say: We are so glad you finally got some snow. Hopefully this time, it will stay long enough for you to have some fun playing in it. We think the snow was just holding off to properly give ‘Tasha and Cheoah a bit more time, to make sure they’d be able to join in the winter fun.

    After almost two weeks of above zero temperatures here in Northern BC, our 22″ of snow is almost gone, and the whole “Peace Country” has become a skating rink. High “hurricane-force” winds have been blowing every day, and record high temperatures for our part of the country have been set in many places; however, looks like we’re getting back to “normal” winter weather here. Supposed to have snow again for the coming week, in varying amounts. Hope The Herd gets their share of winter now, too!
