Cold Snowy Night

Took the dogs out about midnight last night.  It had been snowing again. This time, it was the heavy wet stuff that sticks to the branches. Also the kind that knocks out your power.


The dogs loved it though.  Both are troopers about going out.  In fact, I have more trouble getting them back in.20181126_233949This is Sophie, a terrier mix.  Sweetest, gentlest dog.  Not a mean bone in her body. She would let her brother eat her food if we didn’t watch him.20181126_233640_Burst01

This is Scooter, a Cocker Spaniel.  Mr. personality.  Wants all the attention.  Both are rescue dogs brought up from high kill kennels in Arkansas. They are about 10 now.

Woke up this morning to about 10 inches of the cold wet stuff and still snowing a little.  Fortunately, it has been about 35 all morning and when the snow stopped the rain started. That should take some of the snow off the limbs. I had just finished snow blowing the driveway when my wife yelled out that the power just went off, so took out the generator and cranked it up.  The power company says 24500 without power.  That’s not good.  Could be a while before we get it back. But, that’s life here in paradise.

I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at to showcase the results.

  1. Here on the Mass/NH border, it rained all night, and the temperature was in the low 40s.

    I love the snow photos. 🙂
    Your dogs are both cute, but I’m surprised they like being out in the snow – they are quite close to the ground – I’d think it was jolly cold! 😀

      They are not out there very long and when the temp drops enough, they can walk on top of it. It is not very deep. When we REALLY start to get some snow, I snowblow a spot on the side of the yard to walk them in.

        Aw sweet. 🙂 Your dogs look very happy in the snow I must say. 🙂
        My dog Little Monkey would ‘die’! She sulks on her kitchen bed when it is a slightly grey day here. – like anything under 20C! 😀

    Have had dogs that hated it too. Would not even go out if it was raining. They all have their own personality don’t they.
