It Seems Like It Was Just Yesterday...

Hi everypupppy and everykitty, it's me, Ammy.  Can you tell what's wrong with this picture of me?

Me - with something missing

And this one of Zimmie?

Zimmie - with something missing

I'll give you a hint.   Mom keeps saying today, "It seems like it was just yesterday that it was in the 60s out there..."  Well, it WAS!  Isn't that horrible!?!?  We had such lovely, frigid, snowy weather... then BAM!  It was in the 60s.  And all of our snow is gone.  GONE!  Hrumph.  I can only hope that it went to our friends somewhere - like to Meeshka, who sadly has been void of snow this season.

It did make for a lovely sunset last night:

Dave felt inspired by the colors, as usual.  

Overnight, the weather turned very wild.  VERY stormy (with a small 's'), lots of lightning and rain, and incredible winds.  Over 50 mph.  Then the winds shifted and blew some ice in.  THEN we woke up to this stuff:

That's it on the driveway.  Can you see it?  Tiny, little frozen pellets.

It looks like a styrofoam cup exploded!

The good news is that it's currently in the 20s, windy, and some flurries are flying around.  That's the way it SHOULD be!  Whew.  Crazy Kansas!

I hope whoever got our snow takes good care of it.  We sure enjoyed it while it was at our house!



  1. I didn't get it!

    AND Steve says theirs is disappearing too -

    Where did it go?

    I think woo need to make sure your mom gets a nap this afternoon!


  2. Nope. No snow here. I keep shoving my nose into the freezer and pretend I am in the snow.

    It's in the 60's here now.


  3. Our snow is disappearing quickly. The snow monster must be taking all of it!


  4. our snow is slowly leaving,
    the streets are visible again,

    but at least you had fun while the snow lasted right?

  8. No snow here either - just rain. Lovely sunset there in Kansas but I sure know what that crazy weather is like there. Hopefully more snow is on it's way soon.

  9. I didn't get it either! I would like some snow 'cause it would keep the SK's busy for a looooong time!

  13. That's too bad. You don't suppose you melted it by playing too hard in it, do you? Sounds like you're about to get some more, so perhaps happy days are ahead -- at least for you guys. Not for the folks who have to drive in it.

  14. Hi, friends!
    Yes, the weather around the world is crazy. Here we have 70 degrees right now!
    Kisses and hugs

  15. Doing the snow dance for yua Ammy! And hoping it works for us here too.


  16. Oh, what a beautiful sky!!!! And yes, what's up with this wild and wacky KS weather? Almost 70 here yesterday and then today!!!! T-storms, 80 mph winds, freezing rain, and now light snow. We wish if it is going to snow, we could at least get some drifts.

    Woos, the OP Pack

  17. I know, isn't the weather crazy!

    It was 79 here in Texas yesterday! I sure do wish that your snow would have come our way.


  18. Sorry about the snow going away. Due to some rain, we lost some of ours too.

    A beautiful sunset. I wish I had been there to watch it with you.


    P.S. My snooter is getting better but not totally healed yet. It needs more smooches.

    Hey guys, visit our blog for a little surprise :)

  20. Hi Guys,
    Hope you had a Merry Christmas. Looks like you got some yummy things to eat. We love that pic of all four of you sitting in front of the tree. We got some snow on our little holiday in the mountains over the weekend. I think Dixie is a Sibe as she just loved the stuff. She kept running her nose along the ground under it and turned into a snow beagle! I on the other hand didn't care mush for it as its just rain in disguise! Anyway mum says she will post about our snow adventure tomorrow.

  21. Hi AO4!
    All of my snow melted here too! But I wasn't too sad about that until it started to rain! Now the ground is all muddy and I have to be careful not to get my feet too dirty!

  22. Our snow went away right as everyone else got it, but it still has not come back. We are very disappointed. We got down to 3F the other day, and still no snow.

  23. We didn't get it. Maybe it's like a boomerang and will be right back to you.

  26. WOO WOO

    Yup - that's what happened in Iowa too but we got rain and rain and now everything is frozen. Mom couldn't get into the side door into the garage - It was frozen but the snow is all gone! We are Sad!

  27. Well it didn't come our way...hehe.

    We still haven't had any. :-(

    We are just blog catching up, our person has been so busy and is now blog catching up so we are a little late in seeing your Christmas postings.
    We love the photo of you all by your Christmas tree.

    We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas.
