Posts Tagged ‘Winter Storm Harper’

Hi everyone. It’s Millie here. As you might remember last Friday we were waiting for Winter Storm Harper to hit our area and boy did it ever!

I wonder what is hiding under the snow.

The snow started around mid day on Saturday and didn’t stop until this afternoon! The first 24 hours were from the storm and the last 24 hours were from lake effect. My mom estimates that we got around 24 to 30 inches (61 to 76 cm).

I like going off trail!

It was quite windy so there are some areas that are up to our mom’s thigh. Of course she is only 5’2″ tall but that is still deep.

I think I hit a dead end.

Walter and I haven’t been able to play in the snow much because the other factor to this storm has been the cold temps we’ve been having. Our high temps haven’t gotten over 15° F (-10° C) with wind chills below zero and late at night or early morning it’s been in the single digits.

That snow is deep and it’s cold out here!

Here is a little action video of us today. Don’t be fooled by the brief amount of sunshine you see. It only lasted for a few seconds and it was snowing right through it (that’s the fun of lake effect snow).

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

On those really cold mornings our mom puts booties on us so we can be out long enough to get all our “business” taken care of without hurting our paws. You should see how many layers of clothes our mom has to wear. BOL!

We were getting spoiled with a fairly warm and snow free winter for the past month but Mother Nature is making up for lost time.

No birds are bathing here.

Some of this snow should disappear in a few days as the forecast for Wednesday calls for temperatures in the low 40’s F (5°C) and some rain.

Well I just wanted to let you know that we survived the storm and can’t wait for the temps to warm up a little so we can get out and have fun in the snow. Stay warm friends.
