Walkin' Down The Road...
The snow is a bit deep & slushy on the footbridges and down by the lake so we walked along the boulevard this morning, which is OK when there's no traffic, but that's rarely the case anymore. There was plenty of stinky noisy traffic today but I managed to sneak in a peaceful looking photo between groups of the speeding junk-heaps.
We were heading west here under a sky mostly open and blue, but we knew rain was on the way. A half hour later, eastbound, on the return trip, the sky had turned a dark gray and it started raining just about here. We made it home without getting too wet, as we only live about 3/4 of a mile east of this spot.

A chilly morning walk found us at the east end of the Stanfield Marsh as dawn broke this morning. It was 6° F when we left the house. We were all bundled up and Peg had a scarf wrapped around her face, but we still got pretty cold out by the ice, waiting for the sun, even Dallas was glad to get home to the warm fire.

We received over a foot of much-needed new snow today and Dallas couldn't be more content.
He really loves the snow, rooting around and frolicking in it like a kid. Then he'll pick a spot he likes and go 'round & 'round in circles, until he has the snow all packed down, before plopping himself down in his comfy new den.
He sat here like this today for well over an hour, under a steady snowfall, refusing to come in the house and leave all this fun white stuff behind. At one point I could hardly see him because he was so covered with snow.
