A Dusting

 Many of the blogs that I read on a regular basis, including Lake Superior Spirit, Life in the Bogs, Torch Lake Views and Views Infinitum have been reporting being inundated with snow.  Here in New England, we are certainly no strangers to snow, but we are yet to have what I’d call a real snowfall.  Earlier this week, we received a bit of a dusting along with some bitter cold temps.  Teddy and Daphne are great fans of snow, and their thick winter coats prevent them from minding too much about the temperatures.  The sun was pretty much set for the day when I took these pictures, so they have that bluish tinge to the snow, but this is what we’ve got around here for now:


“Daphne!  Come play!  We have snow!!!!!!!”


“Hmmmmm, indeed we do.”

“See! See! I told you!  Are you ready to play now? Huh? Huh? Are you? C’mon, c’mon!  CHASE ME!!!!”


“Okay!  Ready, set….”

“I’m already going! Wahoo!”

I don’t really share their enthusiasm.  I’d be content if it snowed on Christmas Eve and melted on the 26th. Okay that’s not entirely true.  I like to have enough snow to cause a two hour delay to the start of school!  I get to sleep in on those days, have a shortened day of work and we don’t have to make up those days in June.  I have promised, however, to look at snow with fresh eyes this winter – hopefully as a source of some pretty pictures and opportunity for learning more about Andre.



  1. Karma, surprisingly, we didn’t get as much snow as many other places in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Lower Michigan and other lake effect snow belts. It was a fierce blizzard last weekend–but it didn’t live up to it’s wind-howling reputation. (I like that you’re going to look at snow with fresh eyes.) 🙂

    • 8-10 inches is plenty of snow to me, Kathy! In recent years, it has seemed rare that we have that much on the ground at a time.

  2. Well it was snowing here too when I came home tonight, but I’m also hoping it holds off until christmas eve too, as when it snowed a few weeks back here it cut off our little island, and almost completely ground the county to a halt… and we didn’t have much… but it sure does look nice though… lol…

    • Do you have any pictures to share from that, Brian? I’d be curious to see some shots from your little snowed-in island!

  3. Ok now that’s just weird. We haven’t had anything yet this year and you guys have snow before us??? That never happens!

    • I’d hardly call this snow, Renae! There’s plenty of places where it didn’t even stick, so I’m not counting it yet! 🙂

  4. I’m with you, trying to look at snow with fresh eyes through my lens. Stella is still trying to decided whether or not she likes snow. We need a good amount before that verdict is in.

    • Bring her over to my yard and let her run with my dogs when we get a real snowfall – I bet she’ll love it!

  6. Thank you for the link love. In exchange, I shall send you some of my snow. Watch for it. It’s coming… 😉

    Teddy and Daphne are so cute. I look forward to seeing them play in some *real* snow.

    • Yes – the “delivery” people are saying Sunday night! But I’ll believe it when I see it.

  7. I NEVER tire of your ‘conversations’! 🙂

    I’d take snow over this bitter cold any day. We got a dusting on Monday and I think we are expecting more tomorrow. Your dogs crack me up! Too cute! 🙂

    • Thanks, Tracy.
      Those conversations come fairly easily – I don’t know if you and your hubby are in the habit of this, but we are always “talking” for our animals, imagining what they’d be saying if they could speak to us.

      • Um, yeah, we are guily as charged. 😉 We talk for Cleo ALL THE TIME and I must say, she is quite direct and honest! LOL! I think our marriage is all the better for it as there are many instances where we use humor and HER to get our points across. Works every time! 🙂
