Is it winter, or is it spring?

Over the last few of weeks, we're not sure if it's winter or spring!!!

For a couple of weeks the daffodils had been growing and growing and growing. Just about the time they were ready to bloom out (well some of them at least) we got a big unexpected snow!

About four inches, which is fun and we love! But for folks that have to drive the mountain road, it can be very dangerous.

We made it home from a quick trip to town, just as some of the snow was coming down. We got home and one of our new friends called us because she was driving up the mountain over the past few days to take care of our neighbor's dogs and kitty. But she didn't think she could safely make it up there and asked if we would go feed them and check their water.

So the next morning Mum headed out down their long lane and made it to their cabin. The dogs live outside and the kitty has a kitty door. So Mum fed Coco, the lab/chow mix, and Chestnut, the cattle dog/ hound mix, broke the ice up on their water, got the kittie some canned food and they all three were good for the rest of day until their dad got home later that night.

Once Mum got back we got our snow zoomies on!!! What fun!


Gracie, the snow bunny!


Poor Daffies, take 'em inside Mum, they look too cold!


Oh, the mountains were beautiful with snow!


Snow wrestle!

Then the next day or so, the snow was all gone, the sun came out, it warmed up and Gracie got in some sunbathing! Wouldn't Gracie look great on flyer? but not cheap brochure printing for her she's first class all the way!


Gracie says, 'Ahhhh, SUN!'



And Mum saved the daffies!

What is it about snow that makes some dogs love it so much?

How nice that Mum was able to save the day for the neighbor's critters. It's great when there's a community like that, taking care of each other. Thanks for a glimpse into the rural life.

I can so relate! Major snowstorm here today. No daffodils or tulips yet because it keeps snowing. Hope we get happy smiles like Gracie's soon!
