Old Man Winter was Late, and He Showed Up Pissed.

Black dog running after a first snowfall.
She’s so happy the snow’s here that she won’t let me close for fear I’ll put the leash back on.

Well, when we finally got snow, did we ever get dumped on! The dog is ecstatic, and I was relieved for a while, but when the temperature didn’t give me a break and warm up as I expected it to, well, now it just feels like I’ll never see grass again. Every year, the weather does this to me.

I’m going to take up snowshoeing again. All I need is snowshoes. Again.

I’m already sick of the snow…

And Now for the Weather…

No Snow Yet.

It is freakishly cold out lately. If it would snow, it would at least feel warmer. I always feel too, as though the winter lasts a lot longer around here if it starts late. Ugh. There are few drawbacks to living Northish, but this is one of them.
