Snow, snow everywhere…..

Well, for those of you who were dreaming of a white Christmas, you can stop now! Man do I ever hate winter. It started snowing on Saturday and didn’t stop until Monday evening. I think in all we got at least 28″, and I’m still shoveling. Every muscle in my body burns – whoever said all ya need is a Bowflex didn’t live in the frozen tundra like I do. We’ve had a great winter so far….a little cold, but no snow, and now we get a month’s worth of snow in one sitting.

My husband told everyone at his work last Friday he was going to go home to do the snow dance in the front yard so we’d have a white Christmas. Well, he has stopped dancing – I broke both of his legs after the first 12″, but the damage had already been done.

We dug our way into the dog yard for the second night in a row, and if it blows shut tonight, the dogs can start eating eachother ’cause I’m not going to go dig them out of 4′ drifts again, at least not for a few days. On Monday we tramped though our yard twice in snowshoes to make paths so our house dogs could exercise and go to the bathroom. One of our dogs is a Caridgan Welsh Corgi and the snow is almost twice as tall as her. She walks on a path and we lose her – she sinks right in. Poor girl. Needless to say, she’s starting doing her business on the driveway since we have it cleared off. Nothing like turning your dooryard into a public toilet. Ah yes, “Welcome to our home, watch your step, those aren’t twigs there on the step, if ya know what I mean.”
