Our intentions had been to be snowed in at the mountains today. That is not to be, at least not today. We are snowed in at the beach. They ended up getting about four inches of snow in the mountains, and we have at least six inches here. It is steadily snowly big thick flakes. It is calling for this to continue for about twenty-two more hours with accumulation amounting to about twelve inches. As much as I wanted to be snowed in with our family in the mountains, it is equally nice being snowed in with my family here at the beach! Yes, it even snows at the beach, rarely that it amounts to anything though!
Wylie is the Abominable SnowDog! She loves the snow! She will run through it, roll in it, and then just lay there eating it. She is living up to her name. In case you don’t know Dirt Man originally wanted to name her Yeti because of her huge feet. I didn’t think it was very nice for a cute puppy, so we did a transalation search which wielded Wylie in Tibetan.
We’ve gotten at least three more inches of snow since I took these photographs. I didn’t venture far, only in the back yard. I would have built a snowman, but Wylie was more into playing chase.
Wylie is lying on the picnic table eating snow.
No birds today! Even the squirrels have taken refuge…but they ate all of the birdseed first!
The tree branches look so pretty laden with snow.
No one will be waterbiking today! Anyone have a snow mobile?!
These are what all four of Wylie’s feet look like after a romp in the snow. Ah, the joys of owning a doodle! The snow forms into balls on her hair. We clipped the hair between her paw pads this year because last year she got balls of snow between her pads. This worked out well. The snow balls pull right off. I run a comb through to get out any snow clumps close to her skin, and Wylie sits nicely while I do this…she actually eats what I pull out!
