Royal Outrage

Once again, we were promised snow. Once again, it didn’t happen. Someone is in a royal outrage, so Hu-Dad better deliver big.

Where is my snow? - royal outrage
Where is my snow?

After spending the last two winters living in Murrells Inlet SC where the chance of snow is minimal, we’ve been looking forward to a return to the white, fluffy stuff. We had a dusting just over a week ago, but it barely counted and our Little Prince is in a royal outrage. This week, the prognosticators thought we might get some Friday morning. We woke up, ran out to the yard, and found… nothing. Hu-Dad is muttering something about we are about to get our wishes, but we’re beginning to doubt him. (We are under a Winter Storm Warning for 6-10 inches here in Asheville and much more in the higher elevations around us).

    Those of us with Huskies in their household know it’s ALL about the furbabies so Hu-Dad will have to grin and bear it as I’m sure he’s very used to. The snow and cold weather energizes them?

    Definitely a miffed look on that face. 🙁

    Poor Typhoon-maybe the weather people WILL be right and you will get that promised snow!!! Not sure how much HU-Dad loves 6 to 10 inches of the white stuff though!!!

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.
