Snow Day!

Ha roo, everypup and everycat! It's me - Zim! All the weather bipeds kept saying we were going to get pounded by a major snow storm today. Ammy confirmed yesterday, then posted a "Here it comes!" to Mom's FaceBook page last night. So far, we have at least 4 inches. Here's Ammy from early this morning:

"Yep. Here it is!"

Us redheads went out after Dad shoveled for the first time to admire his work. Here I am:

Me - Zim

I was catching snowflakes on my snooter. Ha roo roo roo!

We went on a nice family walk, of course, to celebrate our first big snow day. Here's Stormy, leading the way:

Stormy - our leader!

When we got back to Ao4 HQs, Dave and Storm checked the Mugho bush for bunnies.

Dave and Storm: Anybunny home?

As you can see from their backs, it was (and is, as of this writing) still coming down.

Ammy and I told Dad we still had some unfinished business, so Dave got comfy in the driveway:

Check his tail action. Ha roo.

After we did what we needed to do, I thought it was time to get busy on building a really cool snow fort! I always build a really cool snow fort when we get enough snow. It's what I do. Here's a collage of me, hard at work, and Dave coming in to help.


As you can tell, it's something I take very seriously!

Dave and I got some playtime in, too, though - fear not! Mom calls this photo "Bliss".

Ha roo!

Ammy said it's not over yet. Who wants to come over?!?

Play bows,

    ZIM!!! I am so pleased you have built a fort! I think you look extra handsome. I think you all look great... but I must say... Tia is VERY partial to the one of Storm with the snow on her back. We all are so jealous of your snow. Please enjoy it for us too!!!
    YOUR Sitka

  2. We are getting the bad ice and freezing rain just South of you....I hope the snow comes, but I worry about my mom driving in this weather.....I am glad you got to play in the snow

  3. Oh how very lovely - the picture at the bottom your mom calls Bliss is just that!
    What fun you are all having and you guys are perfect in the snow.
    We like the snow on days when the humans don't need to get to work!
    So far we have had rain so would be happy to swap to snow.
    At least you can have fun!!!!
    love and kisses

  4. That last picture is PRICELESS!! My goodness, you guys are having the time of your lives out there. I really love seeing all you Husky bloggers playing outside.

  5. Woo Zimmie!!!! I see you were all out walking in your winter wonderland!!

    We are getting dumped on with snow right now too! We are all totally loving it! Dad got some pics and video this morning, so hopefully I can get mom to get it posted for us. Mom even gets to leave work early cuz of the weather, so we are excited about her coming home to play with us too!



  6. We just love it when you celebrate YOUR snow!!! Your pictures are absolutely beautiful - we are all admiring them and absorbing all that is 'sibe'!

  7. Hey Zim, Its gorgeous and I would really like to come over except we are getting more snow too. Also some for tonight and tomorrow. Wahoo! So I better stay home and take care of things here.

    Have fun, Ao4!


  8. we like the 'bliss' pic! it's what we sibes were made for!

    Have a great time playing in your snow and enjoy it for us!!!

  14. Oh Zimmie! You look like you're having the BEST time! I'd like to come and look at the snow but then maybe balconise for a bit with Stormy. What do you think?


  15. Me! Me! Me!
    All I got was a few lousy flakes that melted right away. I build good snow forts, too, Zim. After all, I used to live in the snow belt in Ohio! I'd love to lend my paws to your effort!

    a-roos to yous,
    Jack a-roo

  16. That looks cold out there! Good thing you guys have those lovely thick coats of fur!

    I'm very jealous of your snow. But Momma says it'll never snow where we live. That's sadness right there.


  17. You keep that snow to yourselves, OK? We are going to get slushy rain and sleet and whatnot I fear. Most slippery making.


    P.S. You do look so super happy!

  18. Can I go there wearing a t-shirt, a sweater and a coat??
    Kisses and hugs

  19. What fun playing in the snow. It looks like you guys are having so much fun. Stay warm!

  20. Wow!! Woo all look soo happy playing in the snow! Wish it would snow too here..fat hope!! Anyhowls, thanks for sharing those pics and save some snow for me..


  21. We love the Bliss photo! Your snow looks like a lot of fun and I wish I could be there playing with you! Do you have to put your old leashes back on for snow days?


  22. That last picture of Zim is the best!

    It's cold enough to have snow here, but we just have sunshine. Mom says we have to enjoy it while it lasts, but I say that if it's gonna be cold, it should be snow.


  23. We do! We do!
