Some Snow Fun

Thursday night into Friday I woke up to our biggest snowfall of the season that finally dropped a whooping 3-4 inches of the white stuff.  Not quite NEMO size or the national attention, but enough to make everything beautiful with a covering of the white stuff.  There is a good & bad news snow situation in the suburbs....the good news is that the streets get cleared quickly, the driveways and sidewalks are shoveled for walkers & autos to move easily, the front & back yards are havens for the dogs that love to romp in the snow ie: Toby, but the bad news is that said streets, sidewalks & yards are no longer pristine with newly fallen snow.  There are no hills or valleys or fields that have no trace of human footsteps, I have to drive to see that.  And yesterday I did not feel like driving, maybe it was the long drives of last weekend that I was still recovering from, so my snow pictures are very local (yard local).  Maybe today I will wander into the pristine countryside.





Toby is in heaven when it snows...throw a ball to him and he is a happy guy!!



Not only does he play in the snow, but he eats the snow...


I love this portrait of Toby....may have to frame this one.



Hope you all have a happy weekend....tomorrow night is the Oscar's where we find out the best of all....my daughter always has an OSCAR Party and it's always a fun night...placing bets as to who or what wins the golden statue and eating Chinese food.  A perfect evening!!

  13. Toby is beautiful! I have a Toby too, but mine is a horse. My pup, Buddy, loves the snow too and I posted a pic of both my Toby and my Buddy in the snow this week too! I'm jealous of your snow. We just got rain...had to dig in my archives to find snow pics ;)
