This was our Sunday. It started with walking in a light snowfall that felt more like being pelted with ice.
This was taken at 10:41 AM. In the photo it looks more like rain than snow, but don't let appearances fool you.
11:28 AM. It's starting to look more like snow, isn't it?
12:28 PM. Big flakes. Really coming down now.
12:37 PM. Jan is muttering something about being really glad she doesn't have to go anywhere! There is only a 9 minute span between these last two photos. It was really coming down!
We know this will look wimpy to some of you, but we don't see many snowstorms in this area. We offered our snow to the Army of 4 today. Even offered to pay the shipping charges on it.
But then we -- meaning Buddy, Merci & Samaritan, woofies -- reluctantly took Jan outside about mid-afternoon. And what fun -- for one of us.
Buddy: I was chasing snowflakes. They're really hard to catch. I even ate some snow.
Sam: Yes, Buddy was diving in. Merci and I were wet and cold. Jan just tried to keep her feet dry.
3:09 PM. The sidewalks and roads are clearing themselves.
Buddy: And we really had fun on our evening walk.
Samaritan: This time it was fun. Buddy and I got good and wet, walking in the snow, sniffing for strangers, and wading through big puddles.
Merci: I'm short so it wasn't fun for me. Jan and I walked up the middle of the sidewalk, but there were some big puddles. Jan came home with wet feet and had to defrost her toes. But first she scraped the snow off her car so she doesn't have to do it in the morning. She's wondering if it's going to be slippery when we have to take her out again shortly.
8:22 PM. This is what is left of the snow.
Buddy: We can't wait to take Jan out before bedtime. Maybe we can go skating. We hear that's fun.
Samaritan: Or sledding. Anyone have a sled we can borrow?
Merci: Anyone have an extra newspaper? I think I'd rather stay inside and "read" -- **wink, wink** -- than go back outside tonight.
