"I dunno, Nuala; tastes kinda like water, but it's cold."
"Sure is slippery, too, Sadie!"
Such was our puppies introduction to snow. Environment Canada had been saying for several days we might get a few snow flurries on Thursday, When I was out with the puppies at noon, I think I counted four snow flakes -- almost too small to see. "Yeah," I figured, "that's the snow we were promised." But when I woke up following my afternoon nap, we had a few more flakes than I had imagined.
That didn't stop the puppies from chasing round and playing in it, and having a dandy time.
Although the whole experience caused Sadie to stop for a moment and try to figure out exactly what was happening in her world.
Meanwhile Environment Canada is promising more of the same today, with temperatures of -2°C (wind chills as low as -9°C). It's a bit cool for me, but the puppies are wearing their fur coats, so I don't know that it makes a whole lot of difference to them.
But any crops that haven't been harvested ae going to take a real beating from this.
Oh, yes; I have to get out and shovel the sidewalks, too.
