Really, Officer......

......I haven't been drinking! Could I do this if I had been?

Yesterday, the big snowstorm headed our way was touted to be a doozy, even for the Washington, DC area. There was much media fanfare (of course!). Now the mountains just to the west of us (the Blue Ridge and the Shenandoah) truly did get clobbered, but here the temperatures were in the mid-30's all day. The snow melted pretty much as fast as it came down. It was a very slushy mesh. I had hopes of lots of great photos, but the boys really didn't care to be outside. And it was so wet, I didn't want my camera out in it.
And besides....isn't really time to start looking at pictures of daffodils and crocus?!

Here's a footprint shot of Wilson. There appears to be a bit of a hitch in his get-along. The shallow snow lets you really notice it. Not to worry though, Wilson was recently checked at the vet (full x-rays!), and has a tad of arthritis. There's nothing too serious going on, and they felt he was in good shape for almost ten.

One more snowy shot tomorrow and then maybe we can move on to spring!


  1. Snow is fun but not when it s slushy. We don't like the wet either. Have a terrific Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Oh, I love the pawprints in the snow! Wilson has his very own "calling card" of prints!

  3. My, Jimmy, what big feet you have!

  4. Oh I love the snowy shots! Enjoy!

  5. Hello new furends!
    We sure do love these photo, do your little paws get cold though?!


  6. Wilson looks smashing for 10 years old!

  7. It doesn't look like that bit of arthritis slows Wilson down a bit. He's such a cutie. Love the first shot with the footprints ending at Jimmy!

  8. Looks like your big snowstorm was as much of a bust as ours was. Though I was absolutely fine with that. I bet Jimmy and Wilson felt the same given they don't have a lot of ground clearance. I would imagine a big snowstorm would present them with some unique challenges!
