Don’t Eat The Golden Snowdog



Snow day today!  We’ve not seen snow here since 2013.  A great day for the kids.  When the snow falls, you know your day will be different.  All your plans of driving and doing things are arrested and you spend the day understanding just how cold snow can be.




I kept the fire piping hot.  I’ve been here before.  Snow is great until your mittens get wet.  Then they come in crying.

Lucy made a giant snowman.  Brent pointed out that he has never made a snowman.  I share that same attribute.  But I have made my fair share of sand castles.


Zelie doesn’t remember the snow.  She slept in and was so incredibly excited to get out there.  Her world turned into a “fluffy cupcake.” Her words, not mine.


Brent finished off his morning coffee dodging puppies, gazing at Lucy’s giant snowman wearing his best snow Crocs.


But the snow must go on.  The herd had their second bale of hay when things started melting.  They are rustic cows.  This snow ain’t nuthin’ compared to where they came from.



They are loving the hay, but still manage to find grass underneath the snowy bits.



This is what cow poop looks like in snow.  I knew you were curious…

    Who did the fabulous dog..? Otto ? Lucy’s snow person is superlative ! & I am a Maine girl & have made hundreds of snow people ! Just so she understands what high praise this is (from me).

    So miss all of you after our wonderful stay. I don’t think we showered you enough for you hospitality, endless gourmet meals, & amazing children !, it’s so nice to feel such a great connection again to everybody.
