We had a good 6” or more of snow this weekend. It was pretty windy Saturday night, so there was quite a bit of drifting. We had fun playing in it with the tractor and the dogs. Zeus LOVES the snow. I looked out the window yesterday and saw him shoving his head into the snow and throwing it into the air. Then he dove into the snow, nose first, and began running (and tunneling) around the yard. Snow flew everywhere. Steve saw him run full speed through a pile of snow left by the tractor, exploding it into the air.

We braved the weather yesterday afternoon and went out to a movie and ran a few errands.

This morning we woke up to freezing fog. I couldn’t see either of our neighbors, or even our driveway! The fog froze on everything, so there are these weird crystal formations everywhere.
