Blizzard Update Number 2

Jeff brought Tank up this weekend to play in the snow.  After all, it hasn't snowed this much since March of 1993, and Tank can't wait another 24 years for a blizzard.

We didn't get plowed out until Friday late afternoon, and Jeff was kind of disappointed.  I told him to go ahead and try driving his Jeep over the snow bank and down the long, unplowed part of the driveway.  These are Jeff's pictures, because you know I wasn't out there tromping about in over 2 feet of snow just to take pictures of a fool trying to get his Jeep stuck.

And Tank had a marvelous time in the snow.  Since he is now a 100 pound dog, and he's sunk into the snow, you can get an idea of just how deep it was.
 Did you like how he caught that snowball there?


 And he found a stick!  I don't quite know how he did that, but good for him.

And, yes, I know it's not like where Sue grew up, in northwest New York.  But lake effect snow is unlike anything anyone ever sees.  There's a reason people move from Buffalo to warm places like Pennsylvania.

Baby Madeline was here for her birthday, too, but those are pictures for tomorrow!

Happy Monday, everyone!

It's amazing how much dogs seem to love the snow, ours have always been the same way.

Tank is a beauty! Looks like he was having a blast in the snow... my Gracie girl loves the snow too. Jeff looks like he was having fun in his Jeep!

Our winter has been worthless! I wish we had gotten at least some of your snow!

i have my doubts that our dog will ever see that kind of snow, but i'd love to see him playing in it! i'm with pam, though--snow has been scarce for us this winter. :) and :(

Wow, Tank has really become a tank! Looks like he enjoyed the snow even if the peeps didn't.

I don't think Skippy thinks much of it anymore. He used to play a bit in the snow but not lately. He's a little old man now, maybe the cold is getting in his bones.
Looks like Tank had a fabulous time !
