First Snow of the Season – Sort Of

Nothing is more exciting to a Siberian Husky than the first snow of the winter season. Thus, when it started snowing Friday afternoon and continued through the night and all day Saturday, Hu-Dad was sure we would all be very excited.

Unfortunately, all of the snow was being made at our next door neighbors, Cataloochee Ski. The snow guns turned on around 4:30 Friday afternoon and have been running non-stop since. They are opening for the season Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m.

We are happy for our neighbors, but we are waiting for our own snow so that the Siberian Winter Games can begin.

Wake me when it starts snowing.
