Where Did Our Sunshine Go?

We might be snow dogs, but we admit to having been spoiled with the warm weather we have had. So where did out sunshine go?

The predicted rains arrived yesterday and fell throughout the day. After days and days of sunning ourselves on the deck, we spent much of the day inside complaining about the weather. Hu-Dad kept trying to tell us we wouldn’t melt, but we have our doubts.

The good news – at least if you are a Siberian Husky – is that the weather is supposed to be much colder with off and on snow showers for the next several days. Not enough is predicted to fall, but at least it will start feeling like winter. Then, we will look forward to being outside.

Though, we have to admit, at least one member of The Herd enjoys being in the rain – and soaking it up in his coat.

    Q-Tip’s coat looks so thick that I don’t imagine he even feels damp. Poor Kiska looks just disgruntled. Come on snow!

View from the Ranch

The view from the ranch, our neighbors, is awesome, especially as the leaves begin changes and the cold weather rolls in to our mountain.
