NOW for the WACKINESS of the day.

It IS May 2nd, right?  It WAS 80 degrees F here on Monday and Tuesday and 78 yesterday, right?  And we had to turn on the a/c because it was so warm in the house.

What's up with this?  The local TV station sent out an alert on Mom's iPad that said:  The National Weather Service has issued an alert for an "exceptionally rare May snowfall expected across the area."

Then we saw warnings on the TV for Winter Weather Advisory?????  Huh, since when is May winter????

The Royals baseball game was postponed after playing a few innings due to "SNOW"!!!




Are you sure we are not all just dreaming, Mom?



Well, let's get up and check it out.



Wait, Thunder, I think you have a crumb from Dad's lunch on your head:)


Off we go!


Thunder and Phantom, aren't you coming too?


C'mon, guys, it will be fun!


OK, don't come, but I am going to have fun out here with Ciara.



OK, Mom - I am out here now, but this snow sure isn't worth anything.  I can't possibly do the siberian snooter slide with this bit of snow.

 
Guess I may as well do a yard patrol while I am out here.



Hey, Mom, don't you see Ciara wants to come back out again???




Silly pups!!!You don't see ME out there, do you?  Not enough snow to make it worth my efforts.  I think I will just stay here and use my special blue-eyed stare to wheedle some treats from Mom.

More snow and then lots of rain tomorrow, so maybe by Saturday Mother Nature will be back to normal.  Be sure to stop by on Saturday - something about seeing double.


Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

Snow...really? That is crazy! Phantom really does have the prettiest baby blues

Rebekah said...

Wow! That's a considerable snow for May!

Priscilla Phang said...

Snow again? In May?

Me get no snow here but we have a lot of thunderstorms recently. One of the lightnings killed my mom's computer. She said the motherboard was hit by the lightning so Dad had to get something new to replace it and he spent hours on fixing it. Mom is always restless and moody when her computer isn't working and I'm so glad everything is back to normal now.

Same weather wackiness in Albuquerque! Frankly, the WDA is getting tired of running out to cover up the crops to avoid freeze...it is MAY for dog's sake!

Congratulations of the very nice looking award; thoughtful and generous acceptance speech.

Jo's World said...

Down in Southern Minnesnowda, where they think the weather is better than us up-staters, they got 10 - 17 inches of new snow.

All we got was the chillies (40s) and grey skies!

Cheers,
Stella and Zkhat

Arno Vom Altvilstal said...

Do I see it right? Is this Arno on your post really me? I'm very happy about it! Thank you very much!
And snow? You habe a little bit of snow in your garden? That's very nice for Husky-dogs, but I can immagine that humans are not so happy about it! We have a very cloudy grey wheather over here. It makes no fun! And it is cold too! So enjoy your snow and we all hope the sun will show soon!
Love
Arno

You can send us your 80 degrees anytime, it doesn't even get that hot here in Summer (we've probably said that 11 billion times). Congrats on your award.

We got a little more snow than you did and it's still falling. It isn't enough to really romp, but it's fun anyway. The water in our pool has ice floating in it. Wow!
