short rambles

In my last post, I mentioned that more snow was coming, and boy did it.  We now have a little over a foot of snow on the ground.  It comes up just a little lower than the top of my rubber boots which with two pairs of socks are my winter shoes.  I'm guessing the dogs and I won't be out hiking in the woods for a while since it's almost deeper than Silly, and Antro.  Cici is even slowed down a bit and I wouldn't last long trudging through the heavy, thick blanket.  This snow is also wetter and heavier than our last since we also got a bit of sleet with the storm.  The road is also not a super great place to walk the dogs since the salt, used to melt the snow, hurts Silly's feet.  I might try to take Cici out on the road later since I miss my walks.  I didn't notice how much I enjoy my daily exercise, but I'm missing it almost as much as the dogs are.

Well, here are a few pictures from our big snow.  It is pretty!  There are several photos of us digging out trails around the house.  The depth and weight of the snow make it a hard workout.


  




I can't get enough of bird tracks in the snow.  Shadows of me and the dogs on the snow are fun, but sunset colors and shadows through the trees are beautiful!
