All Right, Already. Enough With the Snow! Gheez!
It’s 9:30 am here in NJ and it’s been snowing since around 8 pm last night. And boy has it snowed. In fact, it’s still snowing. The forecast is calling that it will continue to snow until somewhere between 5 – 7 pm tonight. That’s practically 24 hours of snow fall. Yikes. I tried to walk poor Dave this morning at 7:oo am but he would not go down the front steps. I took him out the side door and he went about 3 or 4 yards and stopped dead still in his tracks. The snow was up to his head and he practically disappeared in it. He was not happy. Anyway, I practically had to drag the poor dog back into the house.
Knowing that Dave really did need to do his duty (or dooty if you please), I shoveled like crazy on the side of the house. I made enough of a space for him to come out but he only took a quick pee on the concrete and just stood at the door waiting for me to let him back in the house… I knew he still needed to do a #2 and that meant shoveling from the front door to the street. So with no other recourse, I worked my way to the street in surprisingly fast time. I hooked the dog up and after a few tepid steps, Dave and I were on the street. The wind was blowing the snow all around us and barely a soul was out. But Dave finally did the deed and back home we trudged. Isn’t this the most exciting story you ever heard about a dog taking a dump?
Anyway, here are a few more pictures around my house. I thought you might enjoy them!
Well, that sure is a lot of snow, eh? As pretty as it may look, what a pain the shoveling is going to be. And now that Linda is up and about, we are going to head out and try to do a bit of it. Wish us luck and lots of hot coffee. Ho! Ho! Ho! Blah!
