As everyone in the entire US heard, New England was braced for a blizzard of mass proportions Monday night and all day yesterday. It actually wasn’t forecast to be THAT terrible — for all of us who have lived in New England most or all of our lives, a foot or two of snow is no big deal. And from what I can tell, in many areas it fell short of predictions. But it was still pretty fun. 🙂 Every nearby business I know of — aside from a few gas stations and convenience stores — were closed. Everyone was home from work, including my husband. It was a fun snow day and we had a good time outside in it!

Mukow was SO PSYCHED…

Nate was psyched…


Then Jack came out to play!

Happy dogs!


Nate decided to run around a little bit, too.

I love how nasty this photo makes Mukow look…


Nate was excited. Really.


You can’t quite tell but at this point (around 10:30/11am) the streets seemingly hadn’t been touched, so they were piled with snow.


My boots!

Oh yes. Snow doggies.

Our side steps…


Our cars getting snowed in…


The guys.

The happiest snow doggy!

“Do I have to go inside?”


We came back out a few hours later, and the cars were more buried…


Mukow was just as excited to prance around!

My Sorels, still keeping me warm!

Sitting and looking at our neighbors’ house, where Molly lives. She does this at least once or twice every time we’re outside.


Someone dared to walk down the street, and got the classic Mukow greeting (which mostly consists of barking and jumping).

“Daddy where ya going?”


After Nate shoveled a path to our door.


The street!


The front of our house.


My boots and legs after I walked through one of the drifts. Thigh high snow!



My eyebrows and eyelashes got all icy!


Mukow found her whiskey bottle squeak toy and WENT CRAZY!

This is what she does when I go inside without her, which only happens once in a while and only if I have to grab something super quick — she’s never alone for more than a minute or two. SO SAD.


Headed over to Mom’s to check the scene out (and so Nate could snowblow).

He was having fun, I swear…


Mukow VERY happy upon my return.

Showing how crazy she gets when she plays with pine needles…

  1. I am so envious of all your beautiful snow! I live in North Carolina and we’re lucky if it snows two inches 😦 Your pictures are so lovely and I enjoyed looking though them all and living vicariously through you!


    1. Aw thank you so much!! I do love the snow and I’m appreciating it more this year than I ever have. That being said, it DOES get old after a while… like when it’s March and all you want is spring and you get yet another snow storm. 😉
