SNOW and ICE

Well at first I was happy because we got enough snow to close school, well that was Monday night. We didn't have school Tuesday or today. Right now there is about 2in of ice on top of the snow, it's getting really annoying being stuck at home. I would venture out if it wasn't for the giant sheet of ice I used to call a road. Oh well atleast there is some fun in it.

My dog can float on snow, can yours?

Re: SNOW and ICE

I miss the olden days of living in downstate Michigan and getting ice on top of snow. It was bitchin' for RC cars.


Here is the plowed road I traveled on today. It's a typical state highway in the UP of Michigan. This is how the roads will look for the next few months. The center of the video is all pixelated because of the airborn snow from the Chevy truck in front of me.

He he he he, well, all three of our Basset Hounds are sinkers when it comes to snow, and since their bellies are only 2" from the ground on a good day, so snow travellin' is tough [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img],
I've had to dig out a Basset Hound on more than one occasion.....when they get stuck, they get stuck [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img].
Heres an action shot of Tiggy......check out the ears in motion [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
