Jack really enojoyed romping around in the back yard. He is a BIG dog, with very long legs, although it doesn't really look like it here! In places the snow was higher than his chest.
Rachel's "cozy coupe" was parked alongside the garage. She was amazed to see it filled with snow.
"I'm melting... I'm melting!" She's not the Wicked Witch of the West, and she wasn't really melting - she was sinking. Rachel is standing up in this picture.
He came, he shoveled, he conquered! He made it to the garage! Tomorrow's task will be to get the van out of the garage. No one has traveled down the alley, yet, so that may be a task. Where, you may ask, is our really nice snowblower that we purchased a couple of houses ago? This is the biggest snow we've had in YEARS, and it certainly would have come in handy. The snowblower, of course, is still at our other house! I hope our neighbor got it started and got some use out of it, since we didn't. Moving is such fun. I did finally find my boots today in a random box. We're still looking for Rachel's snow pants and Daniel's snow mittens.
While all of this snow play was going on, Daniel and I did what we do best... made brownies! I hope we'll get him out in the snow tomorrow, now that the path is clear to the garage. That's where his snow pants are.
