Madison tackled her first snowstorm this week and won! Last winter was a disaster, with barely any snow at all, and until this week, the most snow we got at one time was only a few inches.
Monday was our day! The snow started falling around 6 am and continued until about 10 pm. We were all home all day, and took snow breaks throughout the day to go outside and play around. By then end of the storm we had a good twelve inches of fresh, white snow.
The morning snow was fairly light, and we wondered if we would really get the big amounts they talked about.
Once the afternoon hit, the snow started to come down fast. In order to take photos, our photographer took a big umbrella out to keep her camera dry. Madison was still smiling, and playing with her stick.
As the snow piled up, little Madison had to really put a lot of effort into hopping through the deep stuff. She is pretty short, and was sinking into the snow.
Later in the day, Mom shoveled the deck and created a nice snow mound below for making a snow cave. Madison had never had a snow cave, and was real curious about what Mom was doing. The cave was dug out, and Madison posed for a photo with her first cave, in her first real snowstorm. Such a fun day for her!
If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you may have seen the best ending to our awesome snow day! I posted snow photos during the day, and our favorite weather man actually put Madison’s cave photo on the nine and ten o’clock news! Madison is now famous!
Tuesday, as we all shoveled out from the storm, Madison was out in the yard, once again blazing trails.
The little one had no fear of the deep snow that was up to her neck most of the time. She did come inside and nap after her play sessions. Hopping through the deep stuff is exhausting!
Madison tackled her first, real, big snowstorm, and definitely won. The smile on her face as she is almost buried in the snow, says it all. She is now an official Minnesota dog!
