End of Our Dry Spell

Most of January has been warm and dry. Last night we got from 6 to 8 inches of wet, heavy snow, and it looks like winter again. Howard is trying to leave again today for a business trip to WA, and so far he's had to plow out our driveway twice this morning. It's coming up on noon now, and it's seemed to have stopped falling.

For Jessie, this type of snow is literally a "pain in the butt", since it forms snow and ice balls on the hair of the backs of her legs. She does like the snow though, especially rolling on it and scratching her back and making dog snow angels.
