Neighborhood Snow, But Not For Us

Life is so unfair for some Siberian Huskies since we had a neighborhood snow, but none at Chez Herd. How can that happen?

Notice that white behind me? Why don't we have it?

The temperatures plummeted and our neighbors at Cataloochee Ski fired up their snow guns yesterday afternoon. They have not yet announced an opening date, but we know they have serious snow-making skills, so we expect it will be early this week.

The snow guns fired up giving us a neighborhood snow.

Sadly, we can only watch all of that beautiful snow. Since we don’t have any of the fluffy white stuff on our ground, some of our veteran dogs were not as easily impressed as Landon.

It's cold and windy. Let me in.

    Here’s wishing for some nice fluffy snow for the Herd BUT of course maybe Hu-Dad isn’t as anxious for that to happen?

    BTW-I just finished the new book and LOVED IT!!!!! Good job.

    We’ll all be happy when we see the herd frolicking in snow.

      We wish we could, but because of our extreme drought conditions and the numerous wildfires, Hu-Dad has opted not to light our fire in the fireplace until we get some rain. Sigh.

        Rain in the form of snow would be nice for the pups!!
