Snow and cold

[CENTER][FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="4"][COLOR="RoyalBlue"][I][B]We had some forewarning of things to come.
By the end of November, temps were already below normal.
Ice sculptures began to appear in the oddest places...

And December started with the gift of an Alberta clipper (yes, they really call them that here :D).
It left everything bright and new and cheerful.

[CENTER][I][B][FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="4"][COLOR="RoyalBlue"]The morning after the storm finally ended,
the dogs came out with hazel into the cold, cold predawn darkness to start the shovelling.

"Not sure I like this, Mom!" :eek:

But once the sun came up, it sure all was purdy!!! :flirt:

At least there's something to admire while shovelling the deck...

:D (yes, that's it, that's all...until the next storm rolls through...)

Hazel,,,that sure looks pretty,,,,I think it looks prettier at your place too. :D

hazelrunpack December 21st, 2010 09:38 PM

It was beautiful that first morning. Now it's starting to look disheveled...and of course there are those yellow polkadots here and there :laughing:

14+kitties December 21st, 2010 10:33 PM

As pretty as that is I am shivering just looking at those pics!! Brrrrrr!!

Love4himies December 22nd, 2010 06:59 AM

Beautiful, just beautiful. I have to say, I hate driving in the stuff, but sure love looking at it's beauty when it is freshly fallen.

My Dog Brookie December 22nd, 2010 12:20 PM

Wow that looks very pretty!

Dee-O-Gee December 22nd, 2010 05:22 PM

Beautiful cold and brrrrr-skee pictures hazel even though I can't stand the cold. Oh yeah, ......:yell:

I think we're in for a traditional white Christmas this year which is one thing I like about the wintery white stuff [SIZE="1"][COLOR="DarkGreen"] (and the only one). [/COLOR][/SIZE] :D

hazelrunpack December 23rd, 2010 09:42 PM

It's been a little warmer the past few days--not enough to melt much except on the roof, but enough to make it feel much damper! Not a good change, imo. :D Two other nice things about the snow, besides the beauty: (1) Clean paws, always a plus in this house :laughing: and (2) the finches are swarming the feeders! :lovestruck:

Finally have time to download your photo's, Hazel. The ice sculpture - Wow! how cold does it have to be to freeze running water? Love the one where the snow has set in, but then those with the sun on the snow are lovely too. In the photo of the dogs at the gate, the one with the green collar, is it making a snowman? ROFL.
The photo of the dog sitting where you shovelled makes me feel like "Aaaw, poor baby, come back inside in the warm". The fir trees with their load of snow are just beautiful and the last couple I think show what a good fall it was. No-one will be sitting and swinging on that garden seat for a while. LOL. It's all such a pure lovely white, I am very envious of all you lucky people who get snow, especially when it is going to be 42C here tomorrow. (sob!) (107F)

Oy! Too hot for hazel's taste.... :eek: Did you survive? :goodvibes:

I think it got down to about -17 F the night before I took the pic of the water spout. I think it had been raining the day before. It doesn't freeze solid like that all at once--but if there's a drip or even a slow-moving trickle, it freezes on the ice already hanging from the spout and adds to the sculpture. :D

I think that's Macie making the snowdog. LOL Nah...she was just whapping at the snow boulder. They like to break pieces off and eat them. Unfortunately, it irritates their throats and makes them cough all evening. :rolleyes:

Glad you enjoyed the snow. :D It's raining today :( And tomorrow... Then Saturday the high is going to be 17 F again and everything will freeze rock solid and slick. *sigh*

Get a couple of empty dish soap containers, add warm water, a few drops of soap, and food coloring. Mix gently and get out there and squirt colorful spots of water so the yellow ones blend in :D.

:laughing: It does look like she's rolling a big snowball!

[COLOR="Green"]It is still 41C, Hazel , and though the heat won't kill me, getting rid of this lot below might. You get a lovely covering of snow and the only covering we get is that cursed Fairy grass.[/COLOR]

[COLOR="Green"] -17F is definitely a "6 dog night".(We only get two dog nights here.) The ice sculpture is lovely.[/COLOR]

[COLOR="Green"]You are just being modest. We know that Hazel, aka she-who-can-teach-her-dogs-to - pirouette, also taught Macie to make snowmen, or snowdogs. :D [/COLOR]

Glad you enjoyed the snow. :D It's raining today :( And tomorrow... Then Saturday the high is going to be 17 F again and everything will freeze rock solid and slick. *sigh*[/QUOTE]

I am hanging out for a change that is due this afternoon, then first job will be to clean the Fairy grass out of my stallion's stable. They don't like the feel of it, the ponies. Be careful once it gets icy.
