The Inadequate January Thaw

Last week the weather man said we were going to have a January thaw and it did thaw a little. Just enough to melt the snow down so it could refreeze and make a lot of ice.

We've had "freezing drizzle" and "freezing fog" with more to come in the week ahead.

This is a mid day picture of our dreary sky.

Doesn't it just make you want to plop down and take a nap?

The little dogs are sliding all over on the crusty, icy snow so I keep them close to the house. When they try to get into "position" to do what they need to do, their little feet slide out from under them.

I've been taking Glory on walks in the back field without the little dogs. She thinks that's wonderful.

Knowing the January weather we could be having, I can't whine about this half-hearted thaw. It's a nice break from shoveling.
