The storms just keep coming. Over the weekend there was a futile attempt to dig our way out.
Digging . . . .Just keep digging . . . .What are we crazy? Let's just wait for the next storm, then we'll be able to just walk out.We are mere tenths of an inch away from breaking into the top 10 snowiest winters on record for this area. Even I am ready for a break at this point!

I think we must be headed for a record breaker here on the great plains as well. I love winter but this is getting to be too much!I have to shovel out a spot for my poor sheltie to potty. Still I haven't had it as bad as many places so I won't complain. Spring is coming, I think!

Lori said...

It is so crazy! I can't belive how high the snow is on your fence!!

Diane said...

Only a couple times has the snow been so high that our dogs could just walk out. It's a pain once they discover it, but hilarious if you're there to see the discovery.
The warm temps we had the last 2 days has make a lovely hard crust on the snow so now Otis (our Westie) can walk on top of it without falling through. So he's out there investigating all the places he couldn't when stuck in the trenches of paths in the snow he and Annie have worn down over the weeks.
Annie is too big for such frolicking, her weight breaks the crust.

Daisy is a crazy dog,but a doll.I dont like snow......We have six inches here in West Texas and we're not used to it at all.

I always begged my husband to move to Colorado, boy, am I glad he always said no,lol!

I can't blame you one bit. Snow is fun but you have to draw the line somewhere!

WoolenSails said...

The old saying, too much of a good thing, lol.
I wish we got snow, we got sleet and the old snow is still here, so hard and icy now.

Daisy looks like she is having a ball.

Ha! Didn't take Daisy long to realize there's a better way out...you need to get yourself a pair of snowshoes and join her in the trek over the fence to freedom. Glad you made it through yet another winter storm. :-D

Michelle said...

Oh my! We have lots of snow here, as well, but my dogs go out for as short a time as necessary!

Shakerwood said...

I was wondering if you would have a breaking point........

AnnieO said...

What a trooper, trying to help dig you out :)

I can only imagine you all are ready to throttle Mother Nature...

McIrish Annie said...

It definitely gives us all something to talk about!

Loris said...

oh my goodness, that is alot of snow! What does Daisy think about just walking over the top of that fence? She sure is a good worker but I bet she wishes she didn't leave that stick out there after all :-) It looks pretty but I hope you get a break soon...unless you need to break that record!

Chocolate Cat said...

Oh Daisy you are adorable!

Quilts And Pieces said...

Oh that is nothing! We got 20" Tues night. 3rd highest snowfall in our area ever.

sewprimitive karen said...

Daisy will save you lol!

Beth said...

That is a lot of snow! I just don't know how Daisy can lay in it like that, even with a fur coat! BRRRR

Kathy said...

There is more coming your way on Saturday and then again on Tuesday...we are in a pattern... Hmm, Pattern....NOT quilt related, but gives us time to quilt!

kcdi said...

Amazing! I hope you get a break from all the snow soon.

Mrs. Goodneedle said...

Daisy looks great against the glorious backdrop of snow...

Remember when you were hoping for it, not all that long ago? Geez...

ENOUGH is enough, I agree with you. I'm hoping for an early Spring for your sake (and Daisy's!)

Stephanie D. said...

What hilarious pictures and captions! Sorry for the major snowstorm, but love those photos!

Sheesh! I think I have lost all rights to ever complaine again about our snow levels here!

Dixie said...

Glad Daisy and the snow are getting along so well - she looks up into the camera as if to say "Ok, I'll pose for a minute, but you better snap the pic quick because I'm about to run again!" She is so adorable!

Susan Being Snippy said...

any more snow and there will be no point to having that fence! I am so glad I am between the ocean and the mountains -- near Vancouver, BC, snow has been here for about 4 days total and I don't think we will get anymore. But I do remember the storms on the prairies and we could not let the cattle out to some pastures as the fences were beneath drifts that they could just walk over...

Kelly Ann said...

Did ya get a snowblower yet?

Kathie said...

its snowing again sorry to say
I am ready for a break too...
and I love the snow!

I used to worry about Ransom being cold and then he'd do belly flops just like that---- and my kids would laugh at me......

julieQ said...

Global warming...that's it for sure, don't you think? We have had the coldest winter on record!!

Tracey @ozcountryquiltingmum said...

Wow, this moving across the country really changed your weather!!! It is amazing to me, I can't imagine how your garden survived under all that...it springing back to life after must be a revelation!! daisy looks happy...and those hexes are great!

suz said...

Looks like Daisy is digging her own moat!
You do realize that if we have very little snow next year, once you've returned to CA, this winter will be all your fault! :0)

Shasta said...

Wow that is a lot of snow. Doesn't look like that fence would do much good for a dog that likes to run away.

Colleen formerly of South Africa said...

Snow Days!!!! I can't believe we have 4 inches on the ground in Mississippi now! Looks like Daisy is enjoying it all.

Julze said...

awww....what a cutie!

What a difference from the California weather you lived in for years! It's so beautiful though, and I know it must be nice to live where there are 4 seasons. Daisy looks like she's enjoying it :-)
Blessings,
