The pets had different views of the snow. Skookum was fascinated by it and was actually pouncing it on Friday. She was not amused, however, when I dropped her into it yesterday and she disappeared for a few seconds. Anubis loves it. He's a lab, so water is water even if it's frozen. He loves chasing snowballs.
I tried to go for walkies on the mesa yesterday but it was futile. Anubis gave up right away. I post-holed my way to the top which gave me quite the workout. I started getting snowblind, however, after seeing nothing but white at the top. One of the funny things that happened was I disturbed a bird that was hunkered down under a bush. Poor little guy. Lots of birds were taking refuge in the protection provided by the vegetation. The bush in front of my den is heavily laden with snow, and I have already noticed some broken branches.
Of course I took pics!

Oh! And to all of my friends in Australia and New Zealand....Happy Nude Deer!
