The weather this year has been odd – to say the least …

We arrived to snow .. and quite a bit of it .. the temperature dropped to below minus 10.

Now it’s plus 10 and the snow is gone. The ground is wet and muddy. The grass is green.

So strange.

Sally could care less – as long as there are sticks to be thrown she’s a happy girl.

Sampson is finally tolerating the puppy without big over reactions when we are all outside.

Brody likes the cold cold weather – wet snow balls in his feet so he doesn’t come on long hikes when it’s “warm winter”. Thea is happy by the fire from October to March pretty well no matter the air temperature!
