After the blizzard on Wednesday into Thursday, it was beautiful outside. The temperatures were about fifty degrees less than the twenty four hours before, and the sun was shining bright. It’s rare to get a blizzard in the city/suburbs, but we had a doozy! It started with some rain, creating a layer of ice and then the heavy winds and snow pummeled the area for another ten to twelve hours. We were happy even if it was kind of a mess, we had a white Christmas!
Wednesday morning Mom and I went for our morning run at six and it was forty eight degrees. By afternoon, it was down to about ten. Christmas morning we had nine below, which means, time to get the shoes out to prevent paw freeze.
Mom and I took a nice walk in the woods on Christmas day. With the snow everywhere from the high wind, it was absolutely beautiful out. One thing we love about a good snowstorm is that after it clears, the sun comes out and we have a beautiful day.
The wind created deep snow, and in other areas, almost no snow. Putting my paws in fresh untouched snow is always fun. I didn’t even see any squirrel or other critter tracks in the beautiful snow.
In the woods, the paths were not plowed, but people had already been out and started trampling a path. It makes us feel more adventurous when there isn’t any asphalt showing.
The temperature was in the single digits, but it felt pretty warm, except if I had to sit down. Mom said it was okay for me to stand for most of my photos. It’s nice that she understands. Even my muzzle is all covered in snow and frost. I think it looks rather nice.
For my final photo, we found this sort of archway created by snow laden pine branches for me to sit under. It’s always fun to go out after the blizzard ends to see what beauty nature has for us. This year is was the Christmas gift of a white Christmas.
