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.
