Winter Storm Warning

January 11th, 2009

Mr Chiots and I love hearing those words on the weather channel. There’s nothing we love more than inches and inches of snow piling up outside (probably because we both work from home). It started snowing Thursday morning here in Ohio and it just stopped last night. We have about 9-10 inches of snow and a coating of ice on top of that.
It was kind of bittersweet to go out though, usually Lucy is out there with us running around. She absolutely loves playing in the snow! One of her favorite things is when you throw snowballs at her. She jumps up and catches them in her mouth. It’s hard to catch a photo of, she’s just so quick. This is the best we could do last year.
We went out sans chiots today, she’s confined to the office for at least the next 8 weeks for healing. Mr Chiots spent the better part of the morning shoveling the driveway, he always enjoys the workout.
I made sure all the bird feeders were full and then we came back in for a cup of tea.

Anyone else enjoying all this snow? I know Harley, Brooklyn’s puppy is really enjoying it!

    Actually, our snow didn’t start until Friday around here though.

    Poor puppy! It must be so hard to keep her inside!

    I enjoy the snow much more than other folk around me because I don’t really HAVE to get out there and get around in it. Your post reminded me that I need to fill my bird feeders.
