but not cold enough, we are supposed to get an ice storm this afternoon into tonight.. around a half an inch of ice.  Sure hope the power doesn't go out and I have some really young trees that could have problems.  It starting snowing around 10:00 on bare ground, here are some pictures I took around 1:00 before it started sleeting.  My sister is working today at the Library (this would be here weekend to work and she scheduled herself) and lives about 7 miles out of town, sure hope she makes it home OK.  Hopefully they will close if it gets really bad or she can make it at least to my house to stay.


Stay warm everyone, hope no else gets this.

Snowing here too.  Lola loves the snow.  We were at the dog park today for 1 hr 30 min at 22-23 degrees and she never once looked cold.  Although I don't think she ever stopped running for more than 20 seconds.

We got that same storm that came from wisc. across Lake Michigan... Its funny though when winter hits here everybody always says they want to be somewhere warmer... but the people that are somewhere warmer want to be where the snow is. I seen a few really bad accidents today on the freeways (rode with my boyfriend in the tow truck)

Yeah everyone in OK was like "Are you crazy!? This weather stinks!!" But I figured OK weather was perfect... HOT in the summer... FREEZING and snowy in the winter. NOT TOO SNOWY THOUGH like a lot of the northern states. I too would hate to drive in that kind of weather for MONTHS! That's why we don't live there! LOL

Here in Maine tonight and all day Monday we are supposed to get 8-20 inches of snow.  Time to get ready for the long winter.  I will try to post some pics of Tyson and Sophie playing in the snow.

I love living here and all the seasons but I don't like the freezing stuff or the below 0 weather, but everyone has to deal with something where they live.

We got a nice snow on the night before Thanksgiving, it was wonderful and Kiah had a ball playing in it.  We were at the dog park when the snow started yesterday and she had so much fun, two of her favorite playmates were there.  She played for about 45 minutes but we cut it short when she found a dead mouse and swallowed it before we could get her to drop it.  Yuk!

This morning she went out (no sleet or freezing rain) and had a blast but it was hard for her to walk since the snow had a crust on it.  She loves plowing her nose through it and eating some.

The worst part of the weather, IMO, in Wisconsin is mid February to April.  By Feb I'm sick of the snow and then March and April everything is melting but it's still kinda cold outside so it's just a cold, drizzly, sloppy, muddy, mess.  :)
