Good evening ladies and gentlemen, doggies and kitties. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your indomitable doggie correspondent Chester L. W. Spaniel along with my intrepid associate Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel. 

Our ghostwriter worked all day, so didn't do a proper photo session of us doggies in the snow. But she did take pictures of the weather. This is how it looked from her car in the nursing home parking lot before she headed home at 3:30PM:

Here's the small town she drives through every day on her way home:

But by the time she got home, the weather completely changed. This is how it looked then:

This phenomenon is known as a snow squall: a narrow band of clouds that produces heavy snow and high winds. We watched as the squall crept closer to our house. 

The sun set looked like this:

Gale force winds were blowing and it was 5ยบ out. Ghostwriter almost froze her fingers off taking pictures! But we didn't get the heavy snow. The clouds must have run out of snow by the time they reached us. Oh, and by the way, this is how our house looked this afternoon:

We doggies would like to make an announcement for the sake of our ghostwriter. 

We have enough snow and ice. Thank you very much Mother Nature, but we don't need any more …

… unless you're this crazy guy: 


(Ghostwriter grew up in Niagara Falls NY, and used to visit the Falls all the time in winter to see the beautiful ice formations. But no one she knew ever tried to climb up it!) 


  1. Oh man!!! That looks cold guys!!!! Your Ghost Writer is very brave to risk the digits to take those FABulous pics!!
    I am always amazed that peeps can drive on those snowy roads. You tell her to be safe, and not to climb the icicles in front of your house...☺
