Ah, Spring in the North...

Spring means off-leash walks in the mud and melting snow! That white dog is not Pacer. It's Tehya's buddy, Popeye, although I strongly suspect he is Pacer's younger brother.

And the occasional snowstorm! This was doggy dinner time last night! Right now it's -10C with a howling wind! Feels more like February than April, except it's not dark!

I think I jinxed Spring by putting my Sorels away! I was pretty sure it was time for the rubber boots to come out! The yard is a muddy pit in the spring! At least the blizzard froze the mud up again for a couple days!

Minus 10 C and *S*N*O*W*I*N*G* ~
Not exactly my idea of "Spring" ,,,

But you Yukonner's seem to dace to a different drum.

Happie frozen mud!

The snow part looks WONDERFUL!

We'll pass on the mud though!

THAT'S what was so weird about the storm, the brightness!!!

That cold ran right through my bones last night... brrr... my dogs were holed up like it was 50 below, it was so weird. Thank goodness it's warming up over the weekend, that cold howling wind sucked!

How lucky of you to still be getting some snow! I sure wish we could get some more. Unfortunately, spring is here, and so is the rain and mud.

When you get tired of the cold, you can swing to the other extreme and visit Arizona! And vice versa!

I sure do wish we could figure out a way for you to mail us a box of that snow!
