Post-Vacation Transition

After an RV week of sunshine and beach, we had to make the post-vacation transition back to cold, snow, and wintry weather.

We returned from our January beach excursion to some quite frigid wintry weather. Our temperatures on Sunday barely topped 20ºF (-7ºC) with wind gusts over 50 mph (80 kmph), making for some brutally cold wind chills. Mix in some light, blowing snow, and Mother Nature welcomed us back in style.

This doesn't look like the beach.

So how did we react to our return to the brutal realities of mountain living deep in the winter? Just like you would expect a group of Siberian Huskies to react.

This is awesome! post-vacation transition

Movie Memory Monday

Our headliner in today’s post was leaping through the air to join his favorite big brother, Frankie Suave (who was just out of the shot). Landon has always been Frankie’s Little Shadow, even in this week’s Movie Memory Monday.

    Landon your leaping is impeccable! Very impressive! My female, Siniy, was out rolling in the cold already this morning. Which makes us humans question, why?????

A Whiff of Wildlife

January 29, 2023

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.
