Winter Snow


We had an amazing snow yesterday. Usually Portland gets a little bit in the winter, but there's 5 or 6 inches on the ground now. Apparently we got a little liquid precip last night, too, because this morning there's a thick icy crust on top -- almost thick and strong enough to hold Charlie up. Almost.


While he likes snow just fine, Charlie doesn't like breaking through that crust one bit, and for awhile pretty much refused to go back outside. Now I've got a path broken and, with a liberal sprinkling of treats, convinced him that it's kind of ok. But it may take an actual "walk" to get any business going today. We'll see.

Hi, Charlie!
That ice on the snow does not look funny!
Your video made me want to go under covers!
Have fun
Kisses and hugs

Hey Charlie - you poor thing! Does NOT look "comfy" to break through that thick crust, but have to tell you, I really love snow. I'd rather be eating it tho, like you!

let's hope that soft snow becomes soon so you can go to have some beautiful walks racing in the snow!!!!
Have a great time....your friends Paco & Milo!!!

You look like Foley trying to find a good place to poo. Our yard looks the same.

We're absolutely amazed by all the snow everyone in North America is getting. It looks magical.

It must be tough walking in it when it is so deep.

Hi Charlie, I don't like the crackling snow either! Mom had to stomp out a path to the backyard, just so I would finally go to the bathroom. It's freezing out there!!!
