Barbara

We got snow!!!!!!!!!!!!
The weatherman named this storm Barbara and she is only our second snowstorm of the season! Twelve inches was predicted but they goofed! We only got about 6" of snow but that's okay - it's white and cold and beautiful!
There is nothing like the smell and the taste of snow! Mom keeps telling us that snow doesn't smell and it doesn't taste but she is wrong! Look how happy Dauby and the duckies are to have fresh snow!
Their water sure does look cold!
The duckies are waiting for dad to feed them. "He'll be there in a minute, duckies! He's snowblowing!"
Time to go inside, mom. I need to melt these snowballs off my feet and legs!
So until next time.............

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

When we saw Barbara as the title we were expecting some new art. But you have beautiful art - the snow and your lovely home and pond.

Enjoy!!

I'm surprised you haven't gotten more snow. Doesn't CT usually get quite a bit? We've had it around here so long that we're pretty tired of it, so I'm glad it came your way this time:) Enjoy!

Sue said...

We're glad you guys got to play in the snow. We're supposed to get some more this weekend, but today is warm and sunny.

You sure have a lot of duckies.

We think snow has a taste and a smell. Sometimes we think we smell it coming here, but mostly we are wrong about that. Ah Well...Butchy is sending some more.

Good evening m & m
In the blizzard, it seems to be cold.
However, the Vancouver Olympics started.
The shortage of snow is canceled.
Let's slowly enjoy the Olympics on a wonderful weekend. :D
