It's Our Turn For Too Much Snow
Time to stop laughing at the folks out east and get our own shovels to work. Again.
The snow started early this morning. Early enough to make the morning commute into a game of bumper cars. It's been snowing all day and will go on all night.
The dogs had a grooming appointment at noon today, which I called and rescheduled for next week. With some white-knuckle driving I could have delivered them, but I was concerned about being able to pick them up during the evening commute.
That turned out to be good thinking. I-94 was closed down and the interstate traffic, including semis, diverted onto the two lane country road (Red Arrow Highway) I would have needed to take. It was a good day to plea "chicken driver" and just stay home.
All three of the dogs are smart about the weather. It's amazing how long they can go without a trip outdoors when they want to stay in.
We took a walk at ten am and came home covered with snow. All three dogs decided this was a good day to catch up on their napping. Not a single dog asked to go out again until four this afternoon.
Pappy likes to nap cuddled up as close as possible while I sit on the loveseat with my laptop.
This picture explains why I get dog hair in my laptop keys.
