Its a blizzard

Well in my part of the country we are under a blizzard warning. The heavy snow has not really started yet but it is snowing and blowing. These 2 clowns have been in and out more times that I can count!

They go out run around and play a few minutes then back banging on the door so covered with snow their eyelashes are frosty . If I can get any pics I will do so and post.

Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it, pee on it and walk away.

We had that yesterday and I couldn't get mine to come in the house. They just love that kind of weather.

We are under a blizzard warning too. It started to snow about 15 minutes ago, and the wind is whipping it. Supposed to get 18" before it moves on. I'd rather have snow than the freezing rain that is south of us.
The dogs could care less about how frigid and blustery it is, it's all fun for them!!

I am so completely unimpressed by the monster storm. It's not doing anything here.

We're supposed to have accumulating freezing rain overnight here! I can't wait to see what my street looks like in the morning

I can never get the dogs in the house when it snows heavy. I have to trick Raven with treats and then she's back at the door in 5 minutes.

Yeah, I'm kinda impatient like that. But I'm willing to bet that we don't get much more than an inch or two of snow, and maybe a thin little layer of ice on top. With all the anticipation and media frenzy going on, it's almost guaranteed to not be a big deal here. All the really fun weather seems to always miss me.

In the last 45 minutes or so, the wind has really picked up here it's cold. They just issued wind chill warnings for a lot of MN.
I know we're on the far northern edge of this storm, but if it keeps going, it won't take much snow to make it miserable because of all the wind.

Good luck.

We are right in the middle of the "snowpocalypse". 6 inches on
the ground now. Coming down at better than an inch per hour.
Expect to get 16-20 inches before its all over.

On top of all that the wind is blowing 30 + mph and gusting
over 50. Abby loves it but I am not amused...
