Snow and Cold - that's the name of the game!

As you have probably heard, it has been very cold in the Midwest for days on end now. Up until yesterday, we thought it was great to have not only snow but cold temps too. After all, the cold helps keep the snow around longer. But then the winds came and the subzero temps and the sub-subzero wind chill. Yesterday we decided that it might not be a bad idea to make fewer and shorter trips outside. We did put together a little video of our time outside for the past couple of days. We hope you enjoy it.







And after all that fun, today was even colder.
So here is what we decided to do instead.



The sunshine from the inside felt really good.


Hope you all have a great weekend. ZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Woos, TD and Phantom

At long last, you helped me see the light. You Sibes are not totally crazy. There comes a time when you decide that staying inside or taking shorter walks is the way to go. Bravo! I applaud you for admitting that the snow is cold, brrr. Hang in there, I hope this terrible weather passes quickly.
Twink!

The Thundering Herd said...

Uh - why was mom filming from inside the house. She should have been out there with you so we would have gotten all of the sounds.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Thunder and Phantom!
I am not so sure I like your game!
But... I have an idea! I can go there with you and stay inside with your mom while you two have fun outside!
I'd be more than happy "directing" your videos!
Kisses and hugs
Lorenza

BeadedTail said...

You looked like you had fun in the snow. It's too bad you had to start all over messing up the yard again after the wind covered up all your tracks. Stay warm though boys!

Deborah said...

Smokes will be right over! He would love to play in the snow with you!

Kari in WeHo said...

sounds like you guys have had an awesome couple of days!

Wild Dingo said...

Thunder is so much bigger than Phantom, yet he minds his manners and Phantom quite well! Love it!

Juno wants to come play w/you boys. i'll bet she'd perk up Phantom in 2 seconds!

Stella said...

My outdoor breaks are just long enough to do just xactly what I have to do and not stay one minute longer. You guys are tougher than me, but you are snow dogs, right?

Kisses,

MAX said...

Brrrrrr....!
We have thick coats and would willingly join you in your games. It would be a welcome relief from the hot weather in this part of the world.
Keep warm and happy.

Sleeping in the sun's rays doesn't look too bad either!

KB said...

I love the sleepy indoor photos! But, I have to agree with some others - you guys are Huskies!!!!!! You should be out there pulling a sled :)

Have a great and warm weekend.

SGR said...

Woof! Woof! Back from our long holiday break. Happy New Year! YES! SNOW SNOW SNOW ... which I LOVE it! However, my family is not loving it ... it is not what they expected after a long restful holiday break. Currently, it is just cold and hoping to have some sunshine too. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

We love the video!

We've lots of snow here as well and freezing cold temperatures - very unusual for us - our winters are usually much milder!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

That does look very cold there, it is here too. We don't have that thick snow though but are hoping for some more soon.

Bitey face is such fun isn't it. You both look so relaxed laying in the sun indoors after...just chilling out. :-)

Honey the Great Dane said...

Wow - if it's too cold for you guys with your amazing fur coats, it must be REALLY cold!!! Think you had the right idea today snuggling indoors! :-)

LOVE your new banner picture by the way!!!

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane

Huffle Mawson said...

I dunno, that just looks too cold in general to me. Being inside in the sun is a much better idea!

Ms. ~K said...

We won't complain about our cold weather down here in Georgia...compared to yours, it's a heat wave!!!
Of course we don't have all the fluff you have!!!

Sibes in the sun! Now what could be more fun than dat!!

Cheers,

JD and Max said...

Hi guys - oh yes, we had bitter wind off the North Sea gusting yesterday and we decided that snow isn't fun ALL the time after all, he he! We haven't had ANY sun or clear skies at all over here so sadly no sun patches for us to lie in like you guys - sigh! Keep warm! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Mack said...

Brrrrrr. I am getting cold just looking at the video! The napping in the sunshine looks about my speed!

Twix said...

I'm s-sh-shivering just watching you! I agree with Lorenza! She and I would make good directors. Or, I could come over and snuggle up right in between the two of you in the sunshine....that would be wonderful! I'm glad you guys are enjoying this nasty weather we are having because I'm not liking it too much!
Snuggles,
Twix

Jan's Funny Farm said...

So you like the snow? Khyra does too. We played in it once or twice but snow means cold and we don't like cold. Tough luck, we have it anyway.

River said...

It looks cold there! I don't think we'd like that much snow--you couldn't see us! You could almost walk over the fence. It sure is pretty.

love & wags,
River

Life With Dogs said...

I have never seen so many blogs mentioning cold and snow as I have the last week or two. Which means there are a lot of happy dogs this year. :)

TwoSpecialWires said...

You've got the right idea. Short bursts of fun in the snow and cold, and long peaceful naps in the warmth of home. What a perfect combination.

Enjoy!
Love
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Joe Stains said...

I would have been inside the whole time, just looking at the video made me cold! I am shivering!!

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Good grief! We just found this post in our google reader. Must have missed it!

I can't believe how much snow you had! Too bad it's just about gone (or is gone). Mom says relaxing in the sun looks good to her!
