If you have been following any of us bloggers and Tweeters, this past week, you know the Virginia and D.C. area got slammed with a huge snowstorm. I live about 20 miles southwest of the city and we recorded a bit over 2 feet of snow at our house, which apparently, is crazy for Virginia. We are still thinking the realtor lied to us when she said "6 inches is a lot...and we rarely get that!" So much for that!
So my dog Shae, thought the snow was the greatest thing in the world, racing through at fast as she possibly could, dunking her nose down in it, eating, trying to catch the flakes in her mouth, etc. Pretty hilarious. Our English bulldog, Zoey, on the other hand, didn't care for it at all. She's a bit prissy, not liking her feet wet, not to mention the snow was well above her head. We had to shovel a path for the poor dog to go to the bathroom.
And Aaron and I lovvvved it. For about 48 hours. Then the past 4 years living in New Mexico started coming back to us, with the quick realization that we never even needed to own a snow shovel, snow boots, or winter coats, let alone consider investing in a snow blower! I'm ready for it all to go away now and April to get here.
Back in September I joined the Fall Into Reading Challenge hosted by Katrina over at Callapidder Days. Did I finish? Nope. It's that little thing called The Cybil Awards that get in the way of my free reading. Oh well, it was fun!
