WAY more snow!

So yesterday it snowed, right?  Well, it snowed A TON in the afternoon and evening.   It stopped snowing around midnight or so, and it cleared up today, but we woke up to this:

Somedoggie had come up in our yard during the night, and if it weren't for his tracks, we would have been stuck on the porch - it was REALLY deep!

Before Dad could cut a track for us in the backyard, he had to tackle the driveway.

But he finally finished the driveway, and we came out to supervise the work in the backyard.

Dad!  Are you done yet?  We want to zoomie!
 As soon as Dad was done, we checked out his work.  

Eight paws up!

And, of course, as soon as we had our path cut, we started going off piste!

Yup.  We're total powder hounds!

And, of course, we had to stop and appreciate the white fluffy bounty that had come our way...

It was a long time coming, but it looks like our snow dance finally paid off!!!

This is more like it!

Lots of Snow!

First, let me say that this snow is completely natural, sent straight from the Snow Gods, and not from Frankie's snow guns.  Also,  I have it on the best authority that Frankie's attempts at bribery have been intercepted and contained. Not that I would stoop to accepting such obvious attempts to sway my decision in the Too Darn Cute judging.  Although I would suggest they be sent to Dave and Zim, since they could use the snow and they have no input on the outcome of the Too Darn Cute category.  No reason that Frankie's blatant bribery attempts should go to waste!  

It started snowing in the wee hours of the morning, and continued to snow all day.  Finally!!!!

So, we got in some SERIOUS snow zoomies!


And some serious snow frisbee time!

It doesn't get any better than this!

Or this!

And tug-o-war is ALWAYS better in new snow!

And is best when it's two on one.  
We beat Mom!  Heehee!

And Abby showed off her Mad Frisbee Skillz!

And we played hide-and-seek!

I see you!
And there was a little Sisterly Love...

Good times!

Abby doing what she does best... It was snowing really hard at this point!

Although every time we came back inside, Mom was mutter something about having to throw more towels in the dryer.  I have no idea what she was talking about!

So I've got a little snow on my legs.  It's deep out there!
The only person who didn't seem to be really enjoying the snow was Dad.  Apparently clearing the driveway in a blizzard is not his idea of a good time...

I'm sure our smiling faces made him feel much happier!

Wet, mushy snow, but snow.  And it was thick and slick enough that Mom chose to work from home today.  And believe it or not, she actually worked.  She spent all day at the computer muttering to herself and doing 'work things'.  Amazing!  But she did take us outside a few times....

And we got in some frisbee time.

And some frisbee/zoomie time.

And some plain old zoomie time.

Dad got to play with the ATV....

And Abby was, well, a doofus...

And me?  Well, let's just say that I'm not the Too Darn Cute Judge for Mango Minster 2012 for nothing, ya know!  Heehee.

Heehee.  So the snow was wet; I consider it a fashion statement!
