Not So Patiently Waiting For Snow

Promises were made yesterday that we would see some real snow, so we would best be described as not so patiently waiting here at Chez Herd.

This stare is all yours, Hu-Dad.

This stare is all yours, Hu-Dad.

We had quite a few snow showers throughout the day on Saturday, but virtually no accumulation. But we could certainly smell the snow and kept asking Hu-Dad to let us outside to check on conditions. Out we would go, sniffing the air, and we would return and loudly gripe that the snow was not building.

This is NOT what we want.

This is NOT what we want.

Hu-Dad and the weather predictors promise that we will wake up Sunday morning to a fresh few inches of snow on the ground. All we have to say is . . .

Better happen, Hu-Dad. Not so patiently waiting for snow.

Better happen, Hu-Dad.

UPDATE Sunday Morning – We woke up to 3 inches of fresh snow on the ground. Not as much as expected, but at least it is snow.

    Are you a rescue organization? Looking to adopt a male adult siberian husky. No snow here today, but tomorrow for sure.

      No, sorry, but everyone here at Chez Herd has a home for life.

    Randi says, what you woke up to Saturday, is what we (Chloe and I) woke up to this morning….

    Oh no… I cringe as I await the verdict of either a Sunday morning winter wonderland or a profoundly “in trouble” hu-dad….. ????
