No snow overnight but it started about 9 this morning and snowed until a little after three o'clock this afternoon. I think we got a total of about 3". Not the foot or so I would have liked, but enough to make everything look white again.
We took a walk out to get our mail this afternoon just as the snow was petering out. The above is a shot looking behind us at our foot tracks on the driveway.
This is where Mama Pea fell flat and couldn't get up. The new snow is very light and fluffy and doesn't have any grip at all. I think you can tell from the picture that we still have lots of ice underneath the snow. It was just lying in wait to get me, I tell ya, just lying in wait.
Before we get too close to the road out front, we put Zoey on a lead and I stay back with her while hubby crosses the road to our mail box on the opposite side. She's getting so deaf in her old age that if she took off to follow him, I don't think she would hear me calling her to stop. (Or at least she would CHOOSE to not hear me calling for her to stop!)
Good thing hubby brought the bag to put the mail in today. Three packages were stuffed in the box along with the usual mail. He'd have had a hard time juggling all that while trying to keep me upright on the hike back!
