The weather broke here if only for one day. Long enough to get outdoors, move some snow, clean the coop and then do some snowshoeing. The temperature got to a balmy 36 degrees which felt downright tropical.
The snow is deep. Anywhere from 3 to 4 feet, then there is the drifting.
Chester always wants to go with us. I was afraid he might quit halfway through this hike. It’s one thing to be on snowshoes, quite another to be sinking up to your neck with every step.
The sky was so blue and the sun so warm it was hard to remember how much we’ve complained about the snow. Truth be told I love winter when it’s like this. If it stays above 20 degrees and the wind doesn’t blow I can be outdoors.
What really amazed me was Chester still relentlessly following us around with that ball after the hike he just took. He carried it the whole way then sat with the snowshoes in the sun waiting for the next adventure and hoping it involved that ball.
Thank goodness for days like this. It’s like a reset for your soul. Spring is on its way it just may be June before all of this snow is gone.

Beautiful shots. I have always wondered how dogs who love to be outside can trudge along on the cold of the snow and ice without their feet freezing. It certainly looks like he was enjoying himself. It was an actual -13 when I got up this morning. Brrr.
Thanks. He’s happy as long as he’s with his people. And it was a balmy 12 below here this morning.
