Anyway, given that I was stuck at my house for days last time, due to my steep road and driveway, I did try to get a few last minute errands in on Friday. Around 1:00, it started coming down really hard and I gave up on trying to find what I was looking for (the grocery shelves were empty, there was produce all over the floor, and people were literally fighting over ground chuck at one store), and headed home. Over the next few hours, I sat in my little unabomber cabin and watched as the woods turned into a winter wonderland. The dogs loved it! For all intents and purposes, I'm going to call this Sadie's first snow - she was just a little blob of fur the first time around - and she was running, hopping, leaping, and digging in it. Once I convinced Gabby to go out, she did the same. Yesterday, the three of us went out for about 45 minutes and played in the woods and I took some pictures...which is the reason for this post!
Absolutely nothing to do with snow but I was behind this car right before it snowed on Friday and the big "Sarah Palin 2012" sticker caught my eye. Nice.
I was getting gas when it really started coming down.
My front yard and some fallen limbs, a couple of hours after it started.
Sadie in the snow...
And the Gabs...
The woods behind my house...
Same thing...I was trying to get the contrast of the super blue sky against the super white snow, but it didn't come out quite like I wanted.
The dogs playing in the snow (also a good view of Sadie's oddly short tail)
This is my driveway...
Here you can see how blue the sky was yesterday...can you spot Gabby? This is where we walk when I don't want to drive to the park.
Just some snow on the pine trees with the sun shining through. After I took this one, I had "Georgia on My Mind" in my head for the rest of the day.
The dogs running up the stairs on Saturday morning (this was the first time they'd been out that day).
And finally, the dogs sniffing out some deer tracks. The further out in the woods we got, the more deer prints I saw in the snow. I love deer, wish I could have caught one in a picture.
