more snow, anyone?

It snowed all day yesterday.  Just a light little snow.
The kind of thin, light, tiny, piddling little snow that looks like nothing will come of it.

That is the first indication: something will very likely come of it.

Around 4PM it occurred to me to check the weather report.
The prediction for the entire day and night, through to this morning, was "up to 4 inches possible."

We already had more than that.

Aren't we lucky that snow can be so pretty?

Even when you're starting to think that maybe - just maybe - you've seen the last heavy snow for the season?

Still pretty!

Fortunately for me, I had a lot of help with chores this morning.

Can you see there are no pawprints on the steps leading up into the goat barn?  Just one mighty leap for Ms. Piper, and she was poised to leap right back down again when I took that picture.

It's really hard to get a picture of Piper in the snow, because she is in constant, explosive motion.  She comes very close to flying.

Piper loves the snow.

It makes it difficult for her to actually focus on getting the chores done, but that's okay.


  1. That's a lot of snow. It's amazing how high it was able to pile on that tiny branch and on the thin wires of the fence. Great pictures! Ms. Piper is adorable. I bet it's a lot of fun to see her leaping through the snow. Stay warm.

    1. No matter how many times I see it, I am always amazed at how much snow tiny little branches will hold!

  2. Loving that last pic of Piper!

    I so need to live somewhere where there's proper snow in winter ... swop you your North American white stuff for our Welsh rain?

    1. I am looking for a house-sitter for a few weeks...please hurry on over before the snow is all gone! ;)

  3. Your Piper is just gorgeous - what a clever little face. And next time we get het up about a couple of cm of snow I shall look at yours and stop complaining. Blimey.

    1. Clever face and the mind to match! Piper is a handful :)

  4. Looks like you got a pretty good dusting there, quinn! I love the image of the dog jumping over the steps to the porch :)

    1. Years ago, one of my Irish Wolfhounds used to very kindly break trail for me in deep snow...with Piper, it's every woman for herself!
