Yesterday we got our first little bit of snow ~ but it was too warm for it to stick. Today about 1415, it started coming down in earnest! We had been VERY curious about how Seamus would react, as he's such a prima donna about going outside in the rain (lil stinker!) Jim was at the store, but I bundled up and took him out. As soon as his front feet got on the mat, he looked around as if to say WTF?!?! I walked out into the yard, and much to my surprise, he followed right along, and LOVED it!!! He would push his nose into it, then raise his head and snort... then he started running all around the yard, to check out the funny white stuff. It didn't seem to bother him in the least! I got some pictures with my camera; as soon as Jim got home, he brought his out and got some (hopefully good)action shots. I got Seamus playing with his big blue ball, and he was having an absolute blast chasing it around, slipping and sliding at times... He also got the zoomies a couple of times, and was REALLY tearing around the yard. And when we finally went in, he kept wanting to go back out and play!
Jim finally ordered us a little video camera this afternoon, because I have a feeling we're going to be doing LOTS of playing in the snow this winter with him! (and we should be able to post videos here).
We had a high of around 38 today; tomorrow a cold front hits and the high is only supposed to be 12!! And Monday night the low is supposed to be -5! YUCK!!!
