Only a Northern Song

We got a bit of snow on Saturday. 20 inches, but who's counting? Not unusual to get snow around here. Not unusual to get a lot of snow around here. But 20 inches is pretty substantial. We had a blast walking out in the storm and poor Pup (not really, he lives for this shit) had to blow us out twice and we walked over to the kidlett's house to blow them out as well. Then he blew them out again yesterday.

It came down and came down. I have to say it was awesome.

We all piled into the Liberty (4-wheel drive) and drove around until we found a place open for drinks and burgers. I had scotch. Yes, it was crazy to be out in it, but we just couldn't help ourselves.

There is something about a storm that just makes you want to become part of it.
The hole for the den on Friday.
The hole for the den on Monday.

I think we only got about 12 inches, I haven't heard yet.

You were brave to walk over to the kidlet's house. I know it's not far, but I thought I was doing well by shoveling about 30 feet of sidewalk and went back inside.

It is pretty -- til after the New Year, and then I'm pining for spring.

Got more than WE did !

We got a teaser of a few flakes falling. Nothing more.

Karen said...

Hey, you're getting somewhere!...

And I'll take some of that snow. We just got spit. Alot of it.

Aren't additions fun? We did one 3 years ago and we're still thrilled by the results.

Enjoy the snow.

The Big B & his back sure were appreciative of Bonus-Dad's snowblowing help :)

Deborah said...

RJ - wha? You mean empty den-hole and snow filled den-hole?

Heather - We are used to this and scratch anyone from here and they mostly love the snow.

deb - it seriously was fun. George was digging it the most.

Heff - what would happen out your way if you guys got this much? I'm thinking it would shut everything down!

Karen - I bet you guys have a blast with snow at this old house.

silvergirl - it's a painfully slow process! I'm trying to not be impatient

LBB - what did you guys add? A family-type room? Tell me!

JJ - you cuz is way smarter than us. Ha!

Sarah - Pup was happy to do it. You know how he loves his toys.

20 inches? That is insane. I am actually jealous. We are suppose to get a measly dusting today.
