That's right - it's me - Zim! How did you know?!?

Hey, do you remember last year I showed you the Kansas Ocean had frozen over?!? Well, guess where I went a couple days ago? To the new ocean I discovered!!!

It's been real cold and snowy here, but once the back roads were clear, Mom and I headed out to that Tuttle Creek Ocean! It hadn't been long at all since I'd been there, but wowzers, what a big change! Check it out!

"Wowzers!  It's frozen solid!"
(It was really windy -- look at how it's fluffing my fluff all up!)

As far as the eye could see, the ocean was a block of ice!

"I thought this would only happen to the Kansas Ocean!"

It was really cool! No eagles in sight for Mom to try to photograph, but I'm not sure how they'd get any fishies out of the ocean right now anyway - they're probably out hunting somewhere else! If When we do see some, I'll try to make sure Mom has the camera!

Play bows from the frozen ocean,


  1. Brrrrr.. Looks furry cold!!

  3. I am cold just looking at that. Pretty cool though...

  4. Wow! It was windy! Our "ocean" didn't freeze over completely, but it was frozen at the banks and there were upside down icicles because of the lapping water. It was cool! I wish I'd gotten a picture of it.

  5. Amazing! Sure looks brrrrery cooooold!!! Do stay comfty there, Zimmie!

  6. Oh gosh, now I feel furry cold!
    Love the pictures though :)


  7. Wow, that is sooo amazing. Mummy says she has never seen the sea frozen. I have never seen the sea! Beautiful pictures :) xx

  8. I thinks your Mommy is going to share some of her snows wif me! So, I look forward to a HUGE shipment of the precious white stuffs! Oh, and can woo include some Zimmy fur?


  9. Hey Army Brats,
    Our Bumpass Ocean froze over on the public/cool side but our side, the private/warm side never freezes over. The water temperature out of the power plant is about 112 degrees Fahrenheit and even though it runs through three cooling lagoons it's still above freezing when it joins the other side down at the dam end. But we think that Kansas probably is colder and windier than our part of Virginia. Ya'll try to stay warm and cozy.

  10. That looks too cold! Stay warm!

  11. Amazing snow pictures, wish we had snow like that here in the UK, at least sometimes. My dog is a whippet, not a "snow dog", but he loves snow and enjoys it as much as my daughter :)
    I'm looking forward to more photos of your beautiful dogs.


  12. Wow that does look cold but how beautiful are those pictures. Cold but so blue.. Hugs GJ x

  13. Your sky is so blue and pretty. Has been gray and gloomy around here. :(

  14. It must be really cold there for your ocean to freeze over!

  15. Zim!
    It looks so beautiful... and cold!
    Kisses and hugs
