Duchess & The Snow...
Duchess took her regular morning outage this Saturday morning sinking upto her knees and scrapping her belly in the white, fluffy snow. When she squatted this morning to make her yellow spot... her belly was barely clearing the approximate 5-inches of new snow. As the morning snow progressed, the inches accumulated and Duchess was plowing a path with her "Mae West" chest making the way through the snow. She loves the snow, but is reluctant at times to venture out in it! AND... For the birds, we fixed a round, redwood-type table outside with a bowl of bird seed for the birds that stayed for the Winter. This morning, though, that bowl of seed was covered with snow. Since then, we repossessioned the umbrella over the center of the table -- shading the birdseed from the continuing falling snow. NOW... the birds are happy and eating as our seated Scarecrow watches on! That is NOT Duchess seated by the scarecrow... it's only a stone Pug with snow piled on his head and around his body.
A Few Days Ago... or was it only yesterday morning that a "mountain peasant" with a "pitchfork" informed some of us lower valley residents, "You call that snow! We have 20-some inches up here."
AND... this was before the snow started to fall Friday evening (7th of January). We talked with that mountain peasant again Saturday morning to see HOW MUCH snow they had accumulated. They reported, "On the south side of the front porch it was standing about 2-feet above the floor of the front porch (which is about 4-steps high, I think). NOW... We call that SNOW!"
