Well the meteorologists messed up this time. It was supposed to be raining yesterday. Oh no, it didn't rain, it just kept on snowing. All day. At 5pm there was 13 inches, and it snowed for a few more hours, and then cleared off overnight. That meant it froze overnight, and then we woke up this morning to this.
Time to take photos and try to capture all that glitter and sparkle. Sometimes I was sort of successful.
Looking over our hay field and the neighbour's field.
And back at the house. Look at that blue ski! We don't often get those brilliantly blue skies. Being not far from the ocean adds a lot of moisture to our air, and often there is a very thin haze or high cloud.
Jake and Luna had fun. We didn't take Calli, it was just too deep for her back legs to handle.
It was good to have a trailbreaker with tall boots. It wasn't very deep right here...
But other places were, and my boots were shorter, just like me, and of course I ended up with wet socks.

An 'arty' shot
An icicle hanging off that branch. The camera didn't like this shot, it didn't want to focus. I finally seemed to get the settings sorted out, and the icicle fell off the branch right in front of my eyes:) At least one shot turned out half decent.
The snow had flattened parts of the undergrowth. Normally we would have been looking through the salmonberry bushes here, not over them.
It was just so darn pretty, although the wind had knocked a lot of the snow off the trees in the more exposed areas.
It was a tough slog though, I was wishing I could bound through the snow like the dogs. I'll bet they were tired too, it was hard work, and they went much farther than us. Some snow shoes would have been handy:)
