It Was Sunny


     Then  BAM !!!  A snow storm hit  a full blown BLIZZARD ! . Miggs and I just got back from our walk  it was windy and cold but the sun was shining and as we got home I went to fill the feeders , Miggs was playing with her toy running around being Miggs trying to get my attention . I saw the black clouds just north west of us and heard the winds roaring high in the sky just ahead of the clouds  and I  had said out loud to Miggs , those are snow clouds Miggs  , like she cared lol I went into my shed and filled my feeders took maybe 5 min and by the time I came out it was a white out and the winds were just a howling  I could barely see Miggs or a cross the yard to the house , she looking at me as if to say Mum lets go and get inside , she wouldn’t leave  me or take here eyes off of me at all   she was worried about me  , what a good dog  but at the same time poor Miggs was looking for some where to get shelter I yelling to her over the winds and blowing snow flying around “ up to the house Miggs go on “ as I struggle to hang the feeders up in the high winds and blowing snow . Well we made it in and both looked like snow beasts lol  and drowned rats we were so soaked with in minuets  !

                            This is what it looked like  but it was much worse being in it lol !

                                                    I am always amazed at how fast any storm can creep up !

It is still blowing ,snowing and nasty out there this old farm house is just a creaking and a cracking and the sun is trying to shine again in the middle of this blizzard  so with a bit of luck the storm wont last long and move on ! Miggs and I are now all cozy in side .

                                                   That was  weird  being caught in a wild snow storm !

                                               It was quite the adventure and invigorating to be honest lol !

                                         Is Spring coming soon ? I have had enough of snow and cold !

                                                                          Until next time my friends .

We had a day of this sort of happening... But I wasn't out in it.

Sun.... Some snow..... Sun.... Blizzard... Etc.

Clouds moving quickly, I guess.

Glad you had your faithful friend out there with you, and that you got in. :-)

This reminds me of an old episode of 'Little House on the Prarie" on tv.... It was so awful, that it's imprinted on my mind.

Huge snow storm... They had a rope on a line, like a clothes line, from house to barn. Pa went out and in not too long, the rope could be seen, just hanging. He has lost hold of it, and was thus, lost in the huge snow storm, in his own yard.

Brrrrrrrrr..... Awful! It must have ended ok, but all I remember was that scary scene.

NanaNor's said...

I am so thankful that you both made it inside safely! It did remind me of Little House on the Prairie too.
We've been out in weather like that and I don't care for it either.
So glad Miggs was watching out for you.
It is supposed to be bad here this weekend; but I don't think we get it as bad as you.
Stay warm.

Gail said...

I guess spring will come when she is ready. I await her arrival eagerly.

I'm so glad you were close. I can't even imagine a blizzard like that.

William Kendall said...

We had some snow this morning. I don't know if what hit in southern Ontario will be coming in here tonight....
