In fact, we built two! The storm had a lull for a bit last night so we took the dogs out for a little fun. The wind had died down long enough for the snow to collect on the branches. There was that hush that only happens when the snow is just right. It was also the perfect stickiness to build snowmen. We didn't embellish them (it was late), but one did get a hat. Aren't they cute! When they first came outside the dogs ran and jumped in the snow - they seem to love the fresh snow as much as we do. Of course Kabira got cold and wanted inside, but Spike and Bella stayed outside. Bella was so happy helping us build the snowmen, it was dark though so Mr. Chicken McChicken-a-lot stayed on the front porch. This morning he wouldn't go down the laneway - there were monsters there!
This morning the wind was howling again and the snow was still falling. A perfect day to snuggle down into the house.
And finally Winter, with its bitin', whinin' wind, and all the land will be mantled with snow.
