Winter Storm and Etc…

I live in the area where we were hit by the snow storm in Western , NY. We were not hit as hard as a couple of towns that got 64 inches in 24 hours but it still was a lot of snow for a 24 hour period. We are to get pounded with more snow tomorrow. But I have to say it is beautiful and I have a great big window in the warm to enjoy the view! 

About a week before the storm I took this picture because I thought the moon threw the trees looked awesome

.Last but not least I was at a friends house today and I was looking out his balcony doors and saw this little chubby Robin and had to take it’s picture. This little lovely has been eating well. My friend said his neighbor has a bird feeder at the bottom branches of this tree.


It’s Been Awhile…

It’s been awhile since I have posted anything and I am sorry for this as I do enjoy blogging. We have been having a pretty tough winter here and have been hiding out in the house. Sense the Temp has been so cold here my pups have been house bound. When I did take them outside we didn’t stay out very long as frostbite was a very real threat. Puppy paws and ears  are too important to take the chance. Yesterday we had yet another snow storm and I had to go out in it. Unavoidable.         I rode with my Neighbor who has the all wheel drive because my car is two-wheel drive and it is staying in the driveway.     I will wait until the snow melts to take it out! Right now I am not in shape to be digging out a car. Today we went out for a little while and it is still so cold and the freezing wind did not help at all. But we took a little walk and managed to trek to the mailbox. We all got some needed excersize.

I can’t wait for spring and will be so glad to have something to blog about !

Today Spring Begins……NOT

Today Spring Begins......NOT

Can you see the doggie?

Can you see Babygirl in the pictures? Out of all the years we have lived here this was BabyGirls first time going into what I call the reeds. I don’t know what this plant is yet but it is very aggressive growing and winter time is the only time there is a chance to explore there. They are however very pretty in the fall. Also that snow they are on is actually a bunch of those reeds flattened to the ground from our windy winter and heavy snow.




Midnight was much easier to keep track of with her bright red collar and brigh green tennis ball.


Snow Play

So BabyGirl and Midnight did get out this winter to play in the snow. When we first went out it was daylight but dusk approached us and we stayed out anyway.

 Not a snow ball. It is a tennis ball in disguise                 

    I thought catching the wind blowing the snow up in the air was cool.   

BabyGirl is a 65 Pound German Shepard Mix and look how high the snow is on her.

       The Money Butt shot Hee, Hee

    That BabyGirl sure Loves to go in the snow!

   BabyGirl and Midnight finally meet up.

     My ball, oh where is my ball!

Spring Snow Storm

This is our  spring storm . Nothing like waking up to a bunch of snow! A few days ago I mowed the lawn and was wearing shorts. My poor lilac bush first hard freeze kills most of blooms now snow laying on it’s leaves not to mention the pelting winds hitting it for days! Hopefully next year will be better for it.We are under storm warning until tomorrow!

Fun time in the snow

So I again took the girls out to play in the snow. I have snow lovers here! I couldn’t believe it old BabyGirl out played Midnight! Midnight actually asked to come in first while BabyGirl is still wanting to continue their play session. I am really happy how their relationship is growing into something special for them and me. At the beginning I never thought their relationship could be this great! Midnight has done a lot of good for BabyGirl. BabyGirl as I put it “has her puppy mode on”. She is interested in toys and playing, snuggling it is all awesome One more note. I find it really hard to get action shots with a digital camera . I missed a lot but did did manage to get a few of those action shots.   



Someone going to miss the snow?

Of all the places to rest my little old boy Felix decides to rest on the snow!

Where did my driveway go!

BabyGirl ” I am Queen of this snow mountian”

A couple of days ago I let  BabyGirl and Felix out for their morning business and noticed I could actually see my driveway. Yesterday I opened the door and once again my driveway was gone under the snow. Normally I don’t mind winter and snow but for some reason this year I can’t wait for spring to come.
