First Snow

It was inevitable, it held off for a while this year, but while I was sleeping it crept in and covered everything…the first snow of the winter!!  When I went to bed last night, the deck only had about 4 inches on it, not too bad.  This morning when I went to let the dogs out, I looked out and not only was there about 10 inches of snow accumulate (thanks you lake effect), but the trellis covering one half of my deck had been ripped from he house.

Back of the house – I guess the weight of the snow ripped thr trellis from the house 😦

Thankfully, the drive in wasn’t too horrendous, but I now believe all Michiganders should be required to have a summer and winter driver’s license.  It happens every year people, it’s called snow, it does NOT require you to drive like a moron!!!  Also, if the parking spots at work are angled WITHOUT snow, the parking spots at work are angled WITH snow – don’t take up 3 spots by parking straight.

It must have snowed quite a bit while I was at work (now windows in the lab), when I got home my tracks from the morning were completely covered and I couldn’t make it to the garage.

My car stuck at the end of the driveway

After an hour of shoveling (with frisbee breaks of course) – I’m pretty sure the dogs enjoyed this MUCH more than I did.  I’m sure I’m gonna feel the burn in the morning – anyone have a snowblower for sale 🙂

Almost done

I tried to get a nice snow shot of the kids, but Yukon decided to imitate Jaws

Frisbee stops for NOTHING!!!

I'm currently on a long stretch of work (ends tomorrow thankfully), the dogs haven't gotten a ton of activity over the past week or so.  Today I too them out to a local lake for a dip.  Mira was so tired she could hardly pull herself out of the water and I had to drag Yukon, the lab, out by his collar because he was having a tantrum - didn't want to leave 😜. Mira looks a little chunky when she's dry, it's always funny to see her wet when all of her floof is plastered to her sides! #australianshepherd #australianshepherdsofinstagram #labmix #blacklab #rescuedog #rescuedogsofinstagram  #labsofinstagram #swimming #michigan #summer Early chicken spotted on our hike this evening.  I brought a couple home, I'm giving them a second chance. #chickenofthewoods #mushroomhunting #wildmushroom #sulphurshelf #woodstotable #publicland #huronmanisteenationalforest #michigan #foraging RAWR!!!!! Always on turtle patrol, this little mossy-backed Snapping Turtle was in the middle of the road.  I helped it to the other side even though it was ready to fight 😂 #turtlepatrol #snappingturtle #turtle #michigan #baldwin Always cherish time on the trail with this little old lady, she might not be as fast or hike as far as she used to but she still loves to be out exploring.  We knocked out 3 miles on the North Country Trail this morning north of Timber Creek (near Baldwin, MI), nice to have a little cooler weather! #hikingwithdogs #hiking #northcountrytrail #nct #hike100nct #michigan #baldwin #olddogsrule #traildog #australianshepherd #australianshepherdsofinstagram #rescuedog #rescuedogsofinstagram
