We’ve had rather a lot of it, haven’t we? Today it’s raining and the snow is super-saturated and heavy (this is the Voice of Experience speaking, as I went out and shovelled) and it’s altogether miserable and nasty. And yes, I know that it will melt, but it WILL MELT A LOT FASTER if one shovels.
But two days ago I went out for a walk in the snow and it was glorious.
Spotted a pickup that had missed a curve nestled into the wall of snow the plough had thrown up; I wonder how many of those are around right now?
Drivers might not like the snow, but Our Dog sure does. Doggy snow angels!
The local meadow had clearly been used extensively; there were two snow walls, of which this was the biggest. It’s a semi-circle, and was about four feet tall at the lowest point (it’s built on a slope, so part of it was a good five feet high).
There was also a snow person and a snow dog. At least I think that’s what it is. It’s a dog walking area, and Our Dog certainly thought so. (I’m not sure what the broom-spewing eyeballs on the person indicate? If anyone knows…)
Of course, Our Dog heads straight to water when it’s available. Not a good recipe when the next step is into snow.
It makes the snow STICK to your fur.
But as I said, a lovely day.
And the snow shows tracks so well.
Today… ehh, not so lovely. But look at this: there’s green growing on the pond slush. Algae?
Wait, what’s that thing on the right?
That would be a hunk of tree that fell off. Guess it’s a good day for everyone to stay indoors and avoid things dropping out of the sky.
