My Birthday Blizzard

7 Feb

According to my parents, I was born during a blizzard. I tried to find snow totals for that storm on the Internet, to no avail. I’ll just have to trust them. Since they’ve told me the story at least 40 times, and I’ve heard them tell others just as many times, it must be true. Right?

Before the storm arrived, well in advance, the weather guys said it was going to be a big one. As you can see from the map on the left, we were in the “totally screwed” region. We were supposed to get 20 to 30 inches. I was so excited. I love snow. I really wanted 30 inches. Really.

The dogs love playing in the snow, too. But keep in mind, Meg’s back is 21″ high. She’s our tallest dog. Belle’s back is 18″ high. And she’s got short legs. K has longer legs, but the top of her back is still only about 20 inches off of the ground.

I could not wait to see how the dogs reacted to that much snow. I told Hubby to make sure I was awake first thing in the morning before her let the dogs out. I wanted to get it on video. I did.

Throughout the course of the day, I got lots of other pics and video, too. I’ll have to share more of them later. Between playing in the snow, cooking and eating, I just did not have time yesterday. And now I need to go and shovel some snow. I’ll do a longer post later.

  1. Oh my gosh that’s too funny. I’m so glad I’m not the only one willing to get up at the crack of dawn to film the dog’s reaction to the snow. I did the same thing when we got a bunch of ice and Lola’s first snowstorm.

    I hope you didn’t get totally screwed and are able to dig out soon!

  2. Melissa, I dug out today. It took four hours! I probably won’t be able to move tomorrow as it was a very wet and heavy 2-plus feet of snow. The dogs make the snow even more fun for me, they are just soooo funny!
