Thankful Thursday



 Let's see why we all thankful today as we join Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

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.


I am having a great time keeping watch over our kingdom.  I am thankful for the great view sitting on the hill gives me.

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

Hello The OP Pack! YD here, Angel Samantha and Angel June's mom.

Long time no see Lightning. Nice to meet you Timber and Misty.
I haven't been in the blogging world for many years but I'd come back once in a while to view our friends' blogs.

Brrrrrr. Have fun playing outside, guys, but not for too long. We hope nobuddy slips! We are so happy to hear that you didn't lose your power or heat. Stay safe and warm!

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Misty and Timber, you are in your element out in that weather. I am with Lightning though and would much rather be in the warmth. I hope his leg is soon better, but I don't suppose the cold weather helps it. I know my bones certainly don't appreciate it!

M. K. Clinton said...

We would definitely be snuggled inside with Lightning! Mom is a winter weenie. LOL!

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

I'm seeing other bloggers that are having ice storms too. It's beautiful to look at, but I think Lightning has the perfect way to avoid it - Hope he's better!

Stay safe, and watch your step!

Foley Monster, Pocket and River Song said...

Awww, we hope it is not too long before Lightening's leg is strong enough for him to enjoy true husky weather conditions again.

Kinley Westie said...

I'd want to come inside for cookies too!

Mark Muller said...

that is a super idea to stay in your bed when ice and snow are around... and we would love to get some more fur in winter... maybe you can send some od yours?

Millie and Walter said...

We had a little ice storm here too and today it's very windy. All our snow has melted so we would like to come play in your yard. That way Lightning can stay inside while we younger ones have fun in the snow.

Lots of things to be thankful for!

You are a wise pup, Lightning! That weather sounds really scary. A friend of #1's in PEI, Canada, fell on ice and broke her ankle in three places this week.

We are having a bit of a snow this evening, but it's basically just rain and wind.

Mini-Woofs,
Ollie

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

We haven’t experienced ice or snow but we think ice sounds much worse. We would be inside,as well. But we can see how much the younger siblings are revelling in it!

Caren Gittleman said...

uh oh, hope whatever you were supposed to have doesn't come our way! (It usually does)

Idaho PugRanch said...

We started snowing on Monday evening and it did not quit till Thursday morning. It was only 3 degrees this morning and more snow expected this weekend. Winter is getting serious here in Idaho, we have already had more snow in Feb than we had in the month of January

Thank you so much for your lovely message about our sweet Nala...it was very good to feel your warmth across the wires.

Stay safe in all your crazy weather! It is so good that you all have that big yard to go out in when the weather will not allow for walks!

Your friend Kiki

KB Bear said...

Oh yuck! An ice storm? That is the worst. Lightning is a smart boy, and those other two are crazy Sibes!!!! I didn't know that Lightning was still gimpy :( I hope that changes soon.

Stay warm.

CheerfulMonk said...

I didn't know Lightning was still gimpy either, but I'm glad he's being careful. Ice is scary to walk on, so I'm concerned about your mom, but I'm glad you Sibes got some cold weather to enjoy before winter is over.

Pam and Teddy said...

Well you sure got some COLD weather which you Woos love but I think Lightning is the smarty staying inside nice and warm - woops - I see you talked him into coming out for a bit. Well, the three of you look like you are VERY HAPPY so enjoy but be careful!

Hugs, Teddy

Sue said...

We had one crazy day where we had wind, rain, ice snow and tornadoes. It was hard to keep track of it all. Nobody wanted to go out even for a minute. Now it's just COLD.

Tails Around the Ranch said...

Hope things warm up soon for you. The weather is crazy all over the country. Today is the first day with blue skies but it's still cold. Luckily I have two lap blankets on my ankles with a curled up pup too. 😍

Charlee: "That does sound like good weather for staying inside, Lightning!"
Chaplin: "Forget the weather, I saw something about there being cookies in the house. It's always worth staying inside for cookies!"
