Sheltering From The Brutal Wind

Strong winds gusted across our mountaintop and joined our below freezing temperatures, so Hu-Dad found us sheltering from the brutal wind.

Messing up my fur, Hu-Dad.

Messing up my fur, Hu-Dad.

Now, we Siberian Huskies are known for our ability to withstand cold temperatures and wintry conditions, but there is a big difference from playing in snow drifts and facing 30-40 mile an hour winds. Most of the day, we hung out on the deck where the worst of the winds are blocked.

And napping in the warm sunshine.

For those of you wondering why we didn’t just go inside, notice the lack of Cheoah and Typhoon in these photos. Cheoah was stretched out on the couch in front of the fireplace and Typhoon was napping in Hu-Dad’s study. We can all go inside whenever we want, but we were trying to maintain some type of Siberian Husky dignity.

You never catch me inside. I would sleep outside if I could.

Speaking of enjoying the warmth of the house, Boom Boom led a tour around the house just this time last year, so we thought we would share that as this week’s Throwback Thursday video:

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.
