New Year’s Eve Blizzard 2016

Our year ended with the New Year’s Eve Blizzard 2016. Well, a blizzard compared to our pathetic snowfall so far this winter.

What? Where?

What? Where?

We were lounging by the fire in the fireplace when Hu-Dad told us it was snowing. We raced outside for the snow games to begin. We quickly realized that there was going to be a severe delay of game.

Wow! This is it?

Wow! This is it?

Hu-Dad kept encouraging us to run around in the yard so he could have photos for today’s blog. Our enthusiasm might have been lacking just a little bit, but we sure made up for it with sarcasm.

Let me just break trail through these drifts.

P.S. – Happy New Year!

    What a tease… the snow that is. That first picture of Q is great. I envision a bubble caption saying, ‘this is a joke, right?’

    That’s ok herd. We had a bunch of snow. It was the first time in at least 3 to 4 years since we had a white Christmas. I saw the pictures of last year and the grass was actually really green. We have no more snow though. It all melted away. Almost a week ago we broke a record with a high of 56. Who knows if we will get any more. Out Temps still go up and down I see for the next 2 weeks. I hope you get snow soon. Have a very Happy New Year. Hugs and kisses to the herd.
