Were any of you singing that "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" song? In case it didn't quite pan out for you, please come on out to Ao4 Headquarters. We have plenty for everyone! Yep - a nice, old-fashioned blizzard for Christmas! Thanks, Santa!
Our dad took me and Zimmie on a special hike down the Hudson Trail today to enjoy the snow! He took pix of us with his iPhone and Storm said we should share some with you! Would you like to see? Let's get hiking!!!
Here's Zim out in front, breaking trail:

See how deep the snow is? We had lots and lots of blowing (30-over 40 mph wind gusts) so there was a lot of drifting. In some places the snow was nice and deep like this:
And in other places, there was just an inch or two, like this:
I think you can tell what I thought of our hike from the look on my face!
Mom said I should point out, though, that the conditions out there have been treacherous. Along with the high winds and blowing snow, we've had bitterly cold temps! Sounds nice, doesn't it? Umm... if you're a Siberian Husky anyway.
When you're out on the trail having an adventure, it's important to stop and have some fun. Here I am, letting my instincts take over:
Oooh! What's down there? Is that a vole? Or a mouse?!? Or a mole?!!?
Where, Ammy?!? Where!?!?
Hee hee hee. That would be my "play drive", not my "prey drive". There wasn't anything down there. Hee hee hee. Faked Zimmie out!
Funny, Am. Very funny.
He DOES look cute with the snow all over his face, though, doesn't he?
Ya just never know. There could be something down there. I'll sit here and wait to see if anything pops up.
What's a girl to do but sit and keep her little brother company!?
You're right, Zim... you just never know!
Oddly, our daddy didn't want to sit there with us; he said something about wanting to keep moving and something about a hot cup of coffee.
We sure did have fun on our hike! Many thanks to our dad for taking us and for taking photos! (If you'd like to see more blizzard pix, please click here!) I hope you enjoyed coming along with us!
