Blizzard Benedict

 Holey moley! We got 30 inches of snow!  It broke records that have been sacred since 1888 for the most snow getting dumped on Northford in one overnight and all day dumping! 

 Dauby and Grandpa and the duckies are waiting for their breakfast! 
There is really no grass for you to eat anywhere, ya know!
Here comes Mitchy!  He and dad are back from their walkie!
 Mom and dad were outside all day Wednesday shoveling and snowblowing!

 Mom and dad say that we're stuck with the white stuff until spring! 

Time to go back inside and warm up~
 I get a cookie for being a great tour guide, right mom?
Thank you!
So until next time.................

Love ya lots,

Beautiful pictures! Have fun with the white stuff!

Penny and Patches said...

Holy Moly! You have enough snow to last until May or June! We still have about 3 inches of snow with an inch of ice on top. It takes us a loooong time to get all the way across our back yard!

Enjoy your snow while it lasts!

Holey moley is right!! Yikes that is a bunch of that white stuff. It most certainly looks beautiful. I would like some snow to play in but I don't know if I want that much ;) Glad you two are enjoying it. Was a great tour, you deserve many cookies and a nice nap by the fire.

After reading this I went right to the shipping department and sure enough they took a wrong turn and you got someone elses snow too! Sorry about the mix up....enjoy?

Reilly and Bree said...

My goodness 30" of snow, I would buried under it!!! You need to tell your Ma and Pa to be careful when shoveling, my mom saw something on TV and they said moving a foot of snow is equivalent to moving a car!!!

Sue said...

Wow Maggie, we've never had that much snow. What fun it would be to do zoomies thru it. Can we come stay with you until your snow leaves?

Hi guys, wow - you really have a lot of snow. We had snow one day this past week, about 6 inches, then it warmed up, started raining and now it's all gone :( but it's still raining. It looks much nicer where you guys are.

Benny and Lily said...

You can have that snow Maggie and Mitch!! It is cold enough here for tons of snow too but not damp enough.
Our low this am was 18 degrees. tomorrow am 22 degrees.
Thanks for your visit and the good wishes. I am, thanks to the power of the paw, healing very well.

Hello Maggie and Mitch,

It looks to You like in the fairy tale wood.
We have thaw, but there comes once again completely a lot of snow! I am glad!
Lots of love

Bocci said...

Wow! We don't think we've ever seen 30" of snow in person! And as long as Maggie and Mitch are happy about it, then it must be O.K.

P.S. Your home looks extra beautiful in the snow:-)

You got 30 inches of snow!!! Wow!!! That's just amazing! We just have really cold weather here and got a few inches of blowing snow. There is more salt on the roads than snow....we think they got carried away with it! Your house is beautiful! Lots of love, Holly and mom

30"?????? Really? Incredible - reminds Mom of the blizzard of 1978 when she was stuck in MA pregnant with #3, due any day, and Dad got snowbound in Bloomfield and couldn't get out of CT for three days.

Happy Snowfilled Weekend.

Hey M&M,
Our dad says he remembers a lot of those big blizzard snows when he was a kid last century just outside of Boston. He said he had a flexible flyer and would be outside from dawn to dusk. He agrees wiuth your mom and dad that you'll have it 'til March or April. Standby for a long mud season. OBTW: Youse terrier breeds, all of ya, have got to stop all his helping out crap or else word will get out and we'll all be indentured servants. Go to this webpage and you'll se what we mean:



Stardust said...

Can you walk in those 30 inches without getting buried? Yikes!

Question:Why doesn't Dauby fly away? Becos it's fed? Our swans migrate all the time!


M and M! You got some crazy snow too! You need a beard hat! It's furry pretty though but you're right. It'll be hear until spring.

PS- only a cookie? oh come on that deserves pizza

Puggle Preston said...

oh wow...New England got a lot of snow this year. We completely missed it. Have fun and be safe!


Tweedles -- that's me said...

oh my gosh
where did all that snow come from?

Send some to Khyra!

Wow! 30 inches of snow, I can't imagine. However, I bet the pups are going to have a fun time playing in it. I know mine would.
