A surprise blizzard
We had a one day break from snow storms, and the pups and I enjoyed it at sunset yesterday. The snow had a golden hue from the setting sun.
The dogs romped together.
And R looked very serious, except for the slobber on his forehead. I suspect that it was Shyla's slobber decorating him.
Today, we were supposed to have light snow totaling about 2" accumulation. Oh my, those forecasters were wrong. We got about another foot of powder.
The view from our bedroom this morning - a snowstorm underway...
Before Shyla and I headed out snowbiking, I wanted to snap a photo for our Daily Dog Challenge photography group. A picnic in a blizzard!
In the next photo, it appeared that Shyla had decided that her human was truly crazy.
Don't worry - Shyla got to frolic in the snow after our photo-taking. During our blizzard bike ride, she peeked from behind a tree while she waited for her pokey human. Throughout my bike ride, she porpoised through the bottomless snow, running with endless joyful energy, covering at least twice the distance that I did.
The snow canceled Shyla's in-town training session. The road crews weren't ready for our surprise storm, and the airwaves were rife with stories of accidents and closed roads. We stayed home and sat by the fire.
R knows how to relax - I should take a lesson from him.
