Slip 'N Slide

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie.  We had another ice storm, then about 3 inches of snow on top of that.  The ice made it impossible to go anywhere, but once the snow fell, it actually gave us all some traction.  Yesterday morning, we all suited up and headed out on a walk:

"It's good to get out!"
"This is great!"

No one had shoveled except for our Dad and our next-door neighbor, so we walked in the street. The City hadn't plowed or put down chemicals yet, so it was safe.

We did some uphill walking:

"Follow me, everybody!"

It was a bit slippery, so we took it slowly.

"Engage your four-wheel drive, Cam!"
"Is that 'four-wheel' or 'fur-wheel'?"
"Ha roo roo roo!  Good one."

The path by the water tower had been scraped, so we went up to check that out.

"Oh, does this look like a mess!"
"A slippery mess!"

Mom says during ice and snow events, she prefers to go uphill instead of down.  Something about "gravity".  We decided to turn back around.  Of course, that was downhill, too ... but whatever.  We did need to get home!

I went off-trail on the way down; it was less slippery:

All four of us did a little slipping, but no one fell, so it was a success!  Are you able to get out on your walks?  Stay safe!



  1. BOL engage you 4 wheel drive. I giggled.
    The snow is sparkling and you ladies look very happy.
    I spy a Snowfreak in one yard. Proceed with caution they can be sneaky

  2. We had the same ice and snow here. No walkies, not with our chicken of a Momster. We think she could do it if she wore her yak-trax. They grip the ice very well. So then she says it is too cold - sheesh!!!

  4. We wish we could have just a little snow here. But that ice can be dangerous. Good thing you took your time and we are like your mom. We love to walk uphill when there is snow or ice on the ground. Thanks for sharing the wonderful photos. Have a great day.

  7. Your weather sure is wreaking havoc on your daily walks. It would be no fun if your mom or dad fell and you had to drag them home. Stay safe girls.

  8. Your mom is very brave to head out on the ice...you two take it slow so she can stay upright!

  9. Yikes that ice is no fun at all, but snow, well no need to say anymore. Happy to hear there were no slipping over episodes.
