We will start out by saying we are thankful to have power and heat today as we were under the gun overnight for an ice storm. We did get a "sort of" ice storm, but we really got a mixed bag of weather. We had freezing mist all day yesterday that coated the roads with a fine glaze. Then we had bitter cold temps along with freezing rain, THUNDER, sleet, snow, and more freezing "sneet". So now the roads have snow packed ice on top of the first layer of ice. ALL, and we mean ALL, the schools and colleges and universities are closed today. There is almost no one on the streets that are still very icy because we have temps in the low teens.
So we guess we will have to give Lightning a pass today for wanting to do this instead of being outside.
I am so very thankful for my comfy bed and quilt and my toasty warm home.
The wise old boy has decided that the slippery stairs and the icy yard are not anything he wants to deal with as he is still limping around on that gimpy leg. Mom is thankful that he is such a smart pup.
But these two are remaining true to the Siberian Husky standard and enjoying the cold and ice and snow. So very thankful for time out in the elements.
Misty would play the Siberian Statue like this all day if Mom would let her. She is also thankful for her extra thick natural coat.
No, we don't want to come in - we are wondering when Lightning is going to join us.
I am not bugging Lightning, Mom. I just want him to come out and play with us. I know he would love to join me and Misty.
Yes, I see he is not jumping at my request, but I have super powers and a convincing personality. I know I will get him to change his mind.
See, I did get Lightning to come outside. Yes, he wants to come inside again, but Misty and I think it is just because you have cookies in your human paws.
Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber
