Sliding Without Snow

Because of our S-RV trip, we are not home where the snow is, so we are having to improvise. Cheesewhiz is even sliding without snow.

Sliding without snow isn't the same.

As our astute readers noticed, we haven’t been home all week for the various winter weather patterns we have there. Hu-Dad muttered something about escaping the ice, sleet and snow for a week at the beach, though we can’t imagine the benefit in that.

Don’t worry, though, we are headed home where temperatures are supposed to plummet to zero (and we aren’t talking Celsius) with lots of precipitation from the sky. It’s almost like we are going to vacation from vacation (though Hu-Dad is still grumbling a lot).

    Mom ‘n Ebby say: Poor Cheoah, somehow, sliding on grass just isn’t the same, is it? Can’t wait to get home to the “real stuff”.

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
