Thoughts on Day 3 of Snomageddon ’11 …
The sun is shining. Surely it will melt today.
We have power. We have the Internets. Remember the ice storms of the ’70s?
Whatever happened to nothing stopping the mail? “Neither rain nor snow nor gloom of night.” My mailbox has been empty since Saturday.
Facebook is an excellent source of information as well as entertainment when you’re snowbound. School closings, road conditions, photos of other people’s dogs …
Warren’s 16th (!) birthday tomorrow may be snowed out in part. Even Amazon isn’t making it here in this weather.
I keep seeing pictures of dogs who love this stuff — even one who makes snow angels. Our Cubbie? Notsomuch. It’s all I can do to get her to go make her yellow snow.
2 pm update: There are no kids in my house! Not 1! Gone elsewhere for the afternoon! Back to the real job…
It’s official. I have transferred my motherly tendencies to the dog. No toddlers to make me giggle? Just treat Cubbie like a child. Downside is that she became a needy mama’s girl while we were there. It was almost as bad as having a little kid with us.
Here, Cubbie gets babytalked by 3 people named Elizabeth.
that pause mid-gallop is for a big beach pee
(she’s out there — keep watching)
Huge thanks to Frieda for making me feel like I was there. (If I were, I’d have probably made him wear a helmet, or quit trying to play bumper cars, or something else irritating.)
If you’re like me, and you miss Tom terribly even though he’s only been gone for a day, you can check out more pictures on Frieda’s blog here >
But I’ve buried the lead. Check out Mack’s grandparents’ dog!
