When You Think It's Safe To Go Outside {AKA Snow Rant}

Well, we have been having GREAT weather here in our little neck of woods of Montana. A bit cold on some days and even colder on others, but mostly sunny and in the 40's and 50's for the last week or so, but that all changed suddenly last night.

I was watching the 6:00 pm news last night, windy he said, highs in the upper 40's tomorrow he said, nice and sunny he said, no rain no snow mentioned. It was a LIE !!!!

I went to let the dogs out about 9:00 pm and it had started to SNOW !!

The big blonde dude watched the 10:00 pm weather, lows in the 30's he said, windy he said a chance of snow he said, only about an inch he said. The weather man LIED !!!

This is what my yard looked like at 1:00 am after watching Full Throttle Saloon.

 The back yard. One foot of snow on the dog house.

The front porch and yard.

And it kept up it's craptastic barrage lovely blanketing of snow for the rest of the night.

By the time I woke up in the morning we had another two inches of this crap lovely white snow. 

Snow as far as the eye can see.

Well, at least someone in the family was happy to see all of this snow.

The Monster was ecstatic running around scooping up mouthfuls of snow as he went, even going as far as laying around in it. Of course I can never get a picture of that , he gets up as soon as he hears the door. 

That's the end of my rant.

Take Care Everyone & Happy Stitchin'
Hugs, Sandy


  1. I feel the same way about snow! We got a foot of it last week, but thankfully, it's almost all gone now. Hang in there, springs coming! :-)

  2. That's pretty much what my yard looks like from December til March. We might have a little melt off, but it's generally frozen and white all winter and we're already sick of it. I do have to admit that freshly fallen snow is pretty. Our dog loves the snow too.

  3. Eek! That's a lot of snow... especially when you weren't expecting it!

    Stay warm and be careful out there~

  4. All I can say is... You *are* in Montana, LOL. (Don'tcha just hate when the weather guy lies?)

    We have white stuff all over here, too.

  5. Well the snow sure is pretty but I don't like the cold. Hope you didn't get the deep freeze so much of the rest of the country got this month. Brrrrr

  6. This post cracked me up. I just found you:) I'm SW of you just a ways in Ore. Our joke was always, "I'm sure tired of shoveling this 30%"
    Keep warm & safe.

  7. A lot of snow there, hope its started melting by now. Great photos.

  8. I never see snow! The temperature in my city now at 9:30 PM is 34º. Very hot!
