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.
