We had some light snow and lots of ice last week. We are delighted that our temperatures are back to near normal and the sun is shining. 35 degrees is a lot better than 3.5.
I have mentioned that our Lucy does not like the snow. She does not want to run or romp in it. And many winters we have only a couple of measurable snow storms. Perhaps she does not like having her paws get so cold. Perhaps she is fearful of sliding. For whatever reason, Lucy is reluctant to walk around when there is snow on the ground. This is pretty much how she looks the entire time when we take her out in the snow:
Can we go back inside now?
Lucy spent her first year in Wisconsin with tons of snow. And she loved it! She and Ellie would run and run around the yard. Golden zoomies until they were exhausted. They would lie down and roll in the snow and dig in the snow with their noses.
Although Lucy is not such an old dog, she certainly acts like one when we have a skiff of snow. And I'm with her. I don't care for it at all. Been there, done that.
