So, Um, Happy Unofficial Start to Summer

Mom says that Memorial Day Weekend is the 'unofficial start to summer'. Ya know, as well as being a time to recognize the 'some who gave all'. And we haven't forgotten that part. We'd be flying our flag all weekend, except by law, civilians such as ourselves aren't supposed to fly a flag in inclement weather, unless it's an all-weather flag.... Although, Dad just said our flag IS an all-weather flag, so I'm going to make Mom dash out in the snow to fly our flag.

Yes, snow.

Yesterday afternoon, Abby and I were frolicking in the first decent weather we've had in months...

Mom was even thinking she might start to do some yardwork. And then, last night, after dinner it started snowing. Mom had seen the snow in the forecast, but didn't really believe it. She figured there'd be a few flakes, and then it would turn back to rain.

Instead, last night was like we were living in a snow globe!


And then, Mom figured when we woke up this morning the snow would all be melted.

Not so much.

It has been snowing all morning, although the radar looks like the storm might move through in the next hour or two. But it's supposed to snow again tonight and part of tomorrow.

While Mom and Dad are bemoaning the 33 degree temps and the inclemency of the weather, Abby and I are doing our best to take advantage of the situation. Because bitey-face in new snow is ALWAYS good. Even if it is almost June. And the unofficial start of summer....

Looks like summer to me! Heehee.

So while Mom is whining about the snow, Abby and I are loving every minute of it. I mean, it's not like it's going to snow forever, ya know.... It's only late May...

Happy Memorial Day weekend! Don't forget to fly your all-weather flag in honor of all of our veterans and current service men and women!

This was taken yesterday before the snow started falling....

Are you frackin' kidding me here? What did you do to Mother Nature to piss her off? forget to pick up poop? not recycle? what? you'd better seriously make ammends with her or you won't see summer for years...

i know you live somewhere midwest, but remind me where?

Winnie said...

Well, I'm glad YOU two are happy... but that's about all I can say.

It wouldn't do for me. I'm glad I don't live in the North Pole...that IS where you are? Yes?

Love and licks, Winnie x

I want to leave a comment, but honestly I just can't process this info anymore. After unseasonably cool and rainy spring weather, we have a hot (90's) & humid forecast for the next week. And you have more snow??

Bocci said...

We're having the same weather Tank's having-ugh! No spring here either! Not sure Parental Unit or I could handle snow in late May, though.
Great photos as always:-)

When are you hosting the Bitey-Face World Championships? We think that you can have the winter games and then maybe by August you could host the summer games, maybe.

That's right, it's like you guys are encased in a snow globe where it's perpetually snowing all the time! Well, I wouldn't mind trading you some sun for some snow. It's always hot and humid where we live...snow would be a nice relief :)

Mango said...

I would enjoy some snow right about now. Thanks for the photos. They helped cool me off.

Slobbers,

That's it! I've had it with the snow. Maybe we can start a puppy petition or something??

Clive said...

Still can't believe you're getting snow at the end of May! Lucky you both love it so much!

take care

We LOVE your idea of summer. Be on the lookout for a UHaul with six Siberian Huskies.

BOL! Not again! But I guess I wouldn't complain about it. It's too hot over here. I wanna live where you're living.

Hey friends! Thanks for coming to my superhero party yesterday. Your comments helped us raise lots of money for the animal victims of the Joplin tornado!
