Oh So Pretty, But So Much Work!

Dixie is really enjoying the snow, and let me tell you, we got a whole load of it. This morning we woke up to 4inches, spread evenly on the grounds. Luckily we did not get a major wind with it, so no snow drifts. Our vehicles were only white heaps in our driveway and of course, that damn snow plow had created the usual barrier down at the road. Good thing it wasn’t frozen yet.

After shoveling our 80ft of driveway I went down to the wharf and shoveled 600ft of our floats. I needed a break after that and we had lunch.

It is only under the most extreme weather conditions that we will drop the dog walks. And this snow doesn’t qualify. So off we went in the early afternoon. Down to Herring Cove and then up into the campground where we could enjoy the beautiful makings of winter. The tree branches were heavily loaded and many were hanging low across the trail. The going wasn’t so easy for me, heavy boots and all, but Dixie raced ahead and really had a ball.

  1. Looks pretty from here in Florida....enjoy!

  2. No snow here on the Outer Banks in Kitty Hawk...low sixties...full sun...slight breeze. Nice for beach walking.

  3. That is a lot of snow and a huge driveway to shovel. Thank you for reminding me why we winter here in Mexico.

  4. Dixie looks like she is having so much fun in a winter wonderland. But I'm glad to see it in your blog not in person.

  5. She sure is a beautiful girl....Kelly
