So, after consulting the doppler and hourly forecast, I left for agility in a white out, assuming it would stop snowing by the time class was over and I had to drive back down the mountain home.
Well....it kept snowing for six hours! Wasn't a fun ride home. I drove off the road once, because I couldn't tell where the road was! Pretty much everything was white. Then, when I tried to get back on the road, I swerved left, slid right, slid left again, and then we finally straightened back up. Love my snow tires, they never let me down. Pretty sure we made some really cool "s" marks in the road too.
Despite the subaru commercial drive home, I'm glad I went, because Chewy had a good time. Our teacher had us working on a lot of left turns, which is really, really hard for him, since he is a compulsive spinner to the right. He really had to work against his natural instincts.
We also did the chute for the first time in at least a year. I wasn't sure what he was going to do. He was a bit unsure the first time, but then seemed to get all excited about going in it the next time. He charged through it the rest of class. Very cute.
Turned on the news that night, and the weather guy was still calling it snow 'showers', even though we now had a good 3-4 inches on the ground.
In November, they would've had us all running to the store for bread and milk! Funny how our perspective changes. I think they just couldn't admit they were wrong. Really wrong.
Anyhoo, the snow is of the light and fluffy variety, making everything look pretty again.
Just the right amount for playing, and taking some not so good photos!
For now....can you spot the cardinal?
How 'bout now?
