Snow Again! (And Still No Flowers)

Hello everyone. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your chilly doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel.

On February 27, I wrote about the return of the summer birds, namely those noisy screeching grackles. Since then, we've had a few big snow storms and several snow squalls. Hahahaha! The entire Great Grackle Flying PTA (Poop Tossers Association) is probably huddled in a bush somewhere, shivering their shiny tail feathers off!

 But that's March in Western New York!

The weatherman says this cold weather isn't going anywhere fast. So we still have no flowers! But check out this picture my Uncle John in Tonawanda took:

You might think these are pretty white flowers. But they're not. This is hoarfrost that formed on the tips of the grass that are sticking out of the water in this little pond. Amazing!

Well, I'm not complaining about the wintry weather.


  1. Dear Chester,

    I do feel envious about your Snow! But not your annoying birds. Enjoy your snow while it lasts!


  2. We don't have any flowers blooming outside either, Chester, and I'm with you - bring on more snow!

  3. We are enjoying the snow and cold weather. Our pawrents...not so much.

  4. It is good to see you having so much fun in the snow. We could use some of your snow spirit

  5. That photo of the hoarfrost is amazing!!! No snow here although they said we might see some on Tuesday, the first day of spring:) Wish we could run with you in the snow.

  10. We see that you have perfected the art of Living and Loving Life in Western NY! We really wish that we had a fenced in yard so that we could run like the wind...we have these stupid strings and it is no fun. :(

  11. Chester, You can come visit me in Seattle we got rain.
    Our sun came out of hiding today, maybe yours will too.
