Blizzard, schmizzard

We were supposed to have this HUGE blizzard yesterday afternoon/evening; there were all these civil warnings, news stations were sending out alerts, etc., etc., etc. And it did get pretty windy. And it did snow, but it wasn't exactly an epic blizzard. It has, however, turned a wee bit nippy; Mom says that the temperature hasn't been out of the single digits at all today. Apparently she's just happy that the numbers are at least positive numbers, and aren't negative numbers. That will come tonight, I'm told.

Mom is using this as an excuse to not got skiing today. Well, that and Park City Resort only has one run open right now, and even though she has a bright orange helmet, she's not too keen on skiing with a zillion other people on one run. She's hoping that they'll open up more stuff tomorrow, as she and Dad would like to go skiing.

Abby and I are much hardier souls, however, and don't care what the temperature is. We've been having fun!

Good times!!! And when we're done, we get cookies! ;-)

Here's a picture Mom took last night during the 'blizzard'. I think it's kind of pretty - sort of like it should go on a Christmas card (except that our Christmas cards should only EVER contain pictures of doggies... I'm just saying...)

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

We would sure take your tiny blizzard. Our ski area is trying to reopen for Saturday, but is struggling with a lack of snow so far. They have been open the last 3 weekends, but not during the week.

And that means we do not have snow wrestling going here. Sigh.
