Whoever said, "Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow" should be made to come shovel our yard.
And then we will bite their ankles.
Just in case you don't know, we live in southeastern Virginia. Average snowfall for a year? 7.8 inches. Average snowfall for December? 0.9 inches
As of 3:30 this afternoon, we had 14.5 inches. And it KEEPS COMING DOWN!
This morning, the snow was up to our pugbellies or about 5 inches. Mom had to carry all four of us out of the house. We're no dummies. We weren't going out in that icky cold wet stuff.
But she put us under the deck where the snow wasn't as bad. Tallulah was a big baby and wouldn't come out from under the deck so mom could pick her up to take her in.
Can you see the path that mom cleared at 11:30?
At the bottom of the deck steps, the snow is higher than the first step.
Our patio furniture looks like cupcakes with a ton of frosting.
But it does make for a pretty picture of our house.
Needless to say, we aren't going out in that mess. That snow is deeper than we are tall! We're only 12 inches at the shoulders! Thank Dog for potty pads and newspapers.
We know this storm is headed up north, along the East Coast. So all our friends up that way, be careful and stay warm. Hope your parents have enough food and treats (and potty pads) to last you guys.
UPDATE! Mom has Monday off of work! WHOO HOO!
