Snow Patrol

Chicago FINALLY got its first official snowfall of 2017. Winter this year has been extremely unusual considering most years we are usually buried in snow from December through March. Although we did enjoy those unexpected warm spells during February (usually the most brutal month here), it was comforting to finally see some lovely fat flakes drifting down and blanketing everything in white.

But certain flat-faced members of the family weren’t as excited as I was to venture outside and tread in the freshly fallen snow.


As soon as Sid saw me pull out his fleece coat from the closet, he bunched up in his bed and refused to cooperate. Eventually, with a little encouragement (3 baby carrots), I persuaded him to go outside for some snow patrol duty.

    It has been a weird winter. Our snowfall this winter is the second highest in history – over 80 inches. We are being teased right now with temps in the 60’s but that comes with flood warnings. We are sure that winter is not over yet

    It snowed a teeny bit in Virginia the week we left. GOOD RIDDANCE! We were so happy to have missed it. Sid, you should winter down here.

    Way to get some BCs! I think you should use that technique before every walk. 😉
