Hi everyone! It’s Millie here. Many of you have been showing us pictures of spring popping up all around your homes but around here we still have snow on the ground.

What’s under there?
I don’t know but I’m going to try to find out.

Walter and I love to wander around our yard and try to sniff out what is under the snow.

There might be a mouse under here.

One of my favorite things to do in the snow is make donuts. What’s a snow donut you ask? Let me show you.

I love making snow donuts.

Do you see that circle in the above picture? I make it kind of like how a Nascar racer does when he wins a race and spins in a circle on the track.

Watch this video to see how it is all done.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.

That was great!

Look what you did to the snow!
You should give it a try.

I can smell Millie all over the snow.

It may be difficult to see but here is what was left after I made my snow donut.

Did an alien make this circle in the snow?

One of the important things is to make sure you leave a little pile of snow in the middle of the snow ring. Mom and dad say making a snow donut is kind of like taking a snow bath. I let the snow work down into my coat and then shake it out when I’m done. Do any of you want to come up here and let me show you how to make a snow donut? Come on…it will be a blast!

Hi everyone! Do you remember how excited I was that spring had finally arrived at our house just over a week ago? Well Mother Nature took a few steps backward today. We woke up to a heavy snow squall this morning. Charlie snapped these pictures while he was out with the dogs for their morning “business” runs.

Millie is quickly covered in snow

Even Walter and Millie couldn’t believe what they were seeing. Of course as most dogs do they both took high speed laps around the yard. There is just something about fresh snow that brings out the zoomies in dogs (sorry no pictures of that).

As you can see some of our perennials have started poking out of the ground. I’m sure they aren’t too happy about these colder temps but the early arrivals are used to a few snow showers in the early spring time.

I don’t think these daffodils will be opening very soon.

If you look real close (or click on the image to make it bigger) you can see the small purple Glory of the Snow flowers. I guess their name is very appropriate.

In a short time the grass was almost covered in snow

The snow was still coming down hard when Charlie snapped this picture from the back of the yard. You can barely make out Millie sitting on the patio.

I will be honest, as I sit here writing this post most of the snow has melted off the grass but it still covers the planting areas. The weather peeps say the snow is supposed to keep falling off and on most of the day. I’m really not complaining but it sure was shocking to open the shades this morning and look out at a white out. At least it isn’t the 2-3 feet of snow KB recently recieved in the Rockies.

Hi everyone! As you may know we have had one of the most brutal winters in local history. It is the last week of March and we still have most of our backyard covered in snow.

Last week of March 2015 and we still have snow!

Here is a little video I took panning around our yard.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.

The weather forecast for later this week is hinting at temperatures near 70° F (around 21° C). Maybe we will actually see our lawn (or what’s left of it) later this week.

We haven’t been able to let Millie & Walter play much in the yard as the mushy snow has put a strain on Millie’s shoulder. We will show you later this week what we’ve been doing instead.

Hi everyone it’s Millie & Walter here.

see beautiful logo

We are joining the {This Moment} See Beautiful blog hop this month hosted by Sugar. As you saw earlier this week Millie loves being out in the snow. Even though many people and pups don’t enjoy the snow much we both really love playing and being together in it. Here are a few more pictures from a recent romp in our deep snow. We think snow play is beautiful.

By the way our secretary forgot to tell you that the pictures of Millie from our previous post and all the pictures in this post were taken by our dad, Charlie. Don’t forget if you want to see a larger version of the image just click on it. Enjoy the show!

It’s been a cold and snowy winter so far. Here are a couple of shots of Lake Ontario taken from Webster Park a couple of years ago. If you ventured to the park this year you would see much of the same. This is what a “Lake Effect” snow band looks like as it approaches the shore.

A few weeks ago we received over a foot of snow. These are a few pictures of Walter having fun!
