The weather guys got last nights storm nailed down good.  They said it would start snowing and blowing at midnight and I was up at 2 a.m. and sure enough a lot of snow and already drifted to my bottom step.  I don’t especially like a ton of snow but I really don’t like it when it drifts. (See Dream Hunt story from a few years back).

The drifting will make feeding the God-Damits (horses) tougher and will probably force the use of the big tractor to clear the road to the barn.  I had a pretty easy time yesterday, but I just bet I’d get stuck today without some road work help.

Anyway, we have our little dog MaPa’s and of course animals have to go outside on occasion.  2 a.m. was one of those times.  He didn’t stay out long and I was glad for that because I was tired from all the snow moving I’d done earlier.  When it was time to get up and have our coffee, he looked out the door and decided he didn’t have to go that bad at that time.

About a half hour later he just had to go out.  I opened the front door and this was his view of the outside world.


Not a very welcome view, but when you gotta go, you gotta go.

He ventured gingerly out on the frozen and wind blown snow only a short distance and then decided, enough was enough.


As you can see by his little tracks that the tree was just a bit far for this mornings need to go and he came back toward the house and made his decision.


I’m sorry No Grimace, but that chain saw carved bear was a tree once and to MaPa’s it was enough of a tree to make for a good three legged stand.
