Since we can’t do much about all the snow we’ve been accumulating in the last two weeks, we might as well make the best of it, and enjoy some of the interesting scenes it has created around here!
It was funny how the snow and our barberry bush created this little fort:
Cricket found a ball in there (you can see it right behind her nose). If it had not been in the fort, we wouldn’t have probably seen that ball again for a long time!
Snow Mountain has been getting bigger and bigger. After our larger storm last week, no one had even ventured up there yet.
However, the other day, our intrepid beagle did.
She thought she was going to come in that door, even as I’m yelling at her through it, “no, no, go around, you can’t come in that way!”. Well, you know how our beagle is (see “The Sheer Determination of a Beagle”). I envisioned several feet of snow cascading into our living room, but she would not listen to me. Then, our poor little girl slipped and slid right into the door, and her face was pressed sideways against it! She was definitely stuck and I feared she was hurt! We had to open the door, but surprisingly, mostly only an uninjured beagle came in, and just a little bit of snow.
Last but not least…..yes, those are robins sitting in our apple tree in the middle of a snowstorm!
Has the snow brought any crazy scenes to your neck of the woods, if you even have any? (If you don’t, we have plenty to spare!)

Wow, I can’t believe all that snow! The shot with it creeping under your door is truly incredible. Out here in the midwest we don’t have any snow and haven’t had any since mid-February!!! I would like a little more before spring so feel free to send some of yours our way.
It seems weird that everyone in the west/mid-west is complaining of no snow! It’s unusual for us to get the brunt of it, I would think.
That is so much snow! Thankfully, we missed the last couple storms and only got a few flurries here and there. I’m glad that Cricket made it back inside with no problems!
I haven’t seen her up there since, so she may have learned from that experience!

That is the most snow we have ever seen! I can’t believe the dogs don’t just sink in it. How do you even get outside?
Luckily that’s not our only entrance/exit. The snow is so deep there because it falls off the roof. We have a porch out front so that keeps it away; and the side door is on the gable end of the house so the snow doesn’t fall off there.
I was surprised Cricket could get up there without sinking too! I guess it compacted itself pretty well.
The Island Cats says
That snow mountain is amazing! Glad Cricket was able to navigate it okay.
It’s starting to go down a little bit now, but it’s a slow process! We’ll probably still be seeing remnants of it in May at the rate we’re going!
I love the sheer determination of Miss Cricket!!!!! We are still hoping for more snow here. Any that you want to send our way would be most welcome!
We’d be happy to share; we definitely have more than enough!
We haven’t had much snow … thank goodness! We’re glad Cricket’s okay. Curiosity isn’t the bane of only the cat 😉
That is so true! I have observed that Beagles do have a lot in common with cats, and I guess this is just another thing!
Ellen Pilch says
I am glad she was OK.
It was pretty scary for a minute, but such a relief. I forget sometimes what a tough little dog she is!
Mary Hone says
Wow, that is a ton of snow. I can’t even imagine how long that will take to melt.
It’s going to take a long time if the temperatures don’t start rising! It’s been really cold now; but at least we’ve had some sunshine, that is always a big help.
Brian Frum says
Those were terrific photos of way too much snow!
Ours is melting fast. Enjoy it while you have it. I climbed a snowbank to pee the other day on our walk. On the way down, I slipped on the ice and fell on my nose. Mom heard a thunk, but I was alright and kept right on walking as if nothing had happened. She felt bad, though.
We’re glad you were OK, Emma! I felt so bad for Cricket too. You dogs do like to get yourselves into precarious positions sometimes though!
We don’t get as much snow as you, so we have to make the most of it when it’s there before it disappears again!
We did get a few inches of snow with very strong winds a couple of weeks ago though – that made for some quite deep snowdrifts. There was about three feet of snow against the front door which made for fun when we opened it!
Oh boy, we hope you didn’t get an avalanche of snow in your house like we almost did! 🙂
it reminds me a little of the overlook howltel in shining… hope there is not more snow in sight ;O))) …and Phenny would love to have such a natural snow fort like Cricket ;O)
Forts are definitely fun! We hope we are done with snow now too. Now we’re dealing with cold temperatures! Hopefully spring is somewhere in sight….
