Snowed In!

We woke up this morning to the promised snow, not as much as the pundits predicted, but enough to close the local schools, including the UW, and to keep us homebound for the day. Our son had things to do, so he was inspired to do some shoveling. Don't know whether he'll make it back up our hill except on foot though.
We've been trying to keep up our normal walking routine which has been a challenge, especially on Sunday when it was snowing. I tried to brush the snow off before we went inside, but it took a while for my coat to dry out! As you can see in the first photo, there's a lot more snow in our frontyard today. (No walk today either!)
On Monday we braved a trip down our hill and across town to meet an online friend. Becca and her husband will be moving here soon and certainly got exposed to the "real Seattle" on this visit.
Meanwhile, Max hasn't let a little thing like snow interrupt his schedule!
And Opa took this picture for Sophia. (Mocha wanted equal time on the blog with Ginger and Max....)

Hi Judy! Love the snow pics and I'd say Mocha and Max know exactly how to spend a day of snowy weather!

The snow is so pretty, but then I don't have to shovel it OR drive in it.

Good for you --- getting out no matter what the weather.

Yes, it does look like fun since I don't have to do the shoveling! Mocha takes care of her own cuddling; right? Max getting ready for the phoning that will surely come his way later... Stay Warm!

I thought about you when I heard the forecasts. I do love snow. I don't love the cold, though.

Brrrr! Looks so cold! I think Mocha and Max have the best plan for this kind of weather!! Or some knitting perhaps. ;) blessings ~ Tanna

Wow. I heard about your snow.No fun to be trapped indoors, is it! We don't have the amount of snow, but sixteen degrees below zero. Good time to look at seed catalogs. :-)
SWEET photos of Max (and Mocha).

Glad the snow didn't bother Max :) We're supposed to be getting snow tomorrow...can't complain as we have had very little so far this year :)

It's been such a warm winter here, I don't think we are going to see any snow. I wouldn't mind a day or two snowed in drinking hot cocoa. Looking at Max and Mocha is making me sleepy!

I can't believe you are walking in that stuff. You are much more dedicated than I am! I don't walk unless it's above 60 and dry. LOL
