The high Desert does not get too many storms, snow storms at least. When I was a kid growing up here, we used to get three or four really deep snow storms a winter. That trend is long changed but here are pictures from the latest storm. It caused school to release early yesterday. Heavy, wet, appreciated and pretty!
We received a good 6 inches here at the house. Needless to say, Spanky and the rest of the dogs are NOT amused. Spanky loves to swim but he is tiny and deep snow rubbing his belly is not his idea of fun. Have a great weekend. Here's hoping the snow melts as once again my plans for a long bike ride have been cancelled.
I was in Albuquerque and missed it although there was still snow when I got back late yesterday on the ground. But my daughters had kept me posted. Albuquerque didn't get near what was predicted but I did have to drive through the horrible horrible winds and dust storms on Thursday afternoon going up there. Not an experience I hope to repeat ever. Worse than some of the wind storms we usually get that I've driven through. And of course crazy drivers who think they can still drive 85 mph when the visibility was really really low and some debri on the highway causing cars to veer suddenly. Your pictures look so pretty though. Another storm supposed to be moving in they say. 2695 days ago
Little Spartacus (the chihuahua) goes about a third of the way before he starts dragging - I pick him up & stick him in my jacket for a 3d, then he'll walk the rest of the way. The fluffies, Shalako & Samurai, just love the cold (but not the wind!). 2696 days ago
It is beautiful. I am in Northern Wisconsin, on the shore of Lake Superior, so snow here is commonplace. However, I'm excited to be in the country this year (moved this summer), and looking very forward to the winter snow. Already have dug out my cross country skis, ready to go. lol
I also have a dog that doesn't like the snow (yep, here in WI). He's a Whippet, and does NOT like to be in either rain OR snow. It's time to dig out his winter jacket and doggie boots as well. ((sighs )) 2696 days ago
