The word is that California has been experiencing some wild winter weather.
The word is correct!
I have never seen so much snow
fall at one time
in the whole time we have lived here.
This looked so pretty outside
of the Secret Garden
and I wanted to get a clear photo of it
but the snow was piled so high against the screen door,
I couldn't get it open.
It finally stopped snowing
and has now turned to rain.
When I was writing this (Monday evening) we were having very loud thunder.
I don't know which I detest the most.
I was always so proud to be the first one to yell, "we've got snow"
and just a little disappointed to see it gone
in a day or two.
May I never feel that way again.
I don't know how
the rest of the country survives winter.
We did survive in our space
and did not lose power
and was not subject to any flooding
so I feel very fortunate
and am gearing up for the nasty, gray days left until spring.
As long as I can keep
my house clean, the candles hold out and
the grocery store stocks fresh flowers,
I know it will get better
but better, right now,
seems a long way ahead!
There is one member of the family, however, that is in his element.
Rugby love loves the snow
and will use every trick in the book
to be able to go outside and play...
...Robin, on the other hand,
only stays out until
"the necessaries" are over with.
In fact, when the steps weren't clear
she would only use them,
thank you very much.
It seems like a thousand years ago
that we did have
some sunshine between snowstorms,
and as much as I tried to push my way
into the spotlight,
there was only room for two.
We got Rugby's DNA test back
and found out he is:
43.7% small poodle
9,5% Lhasa Apso
4.0% Cocker Spaniel
21.2% Super Mutt
100% sweet boy.
Stay warm and safe until next time.
