The Big Snow

Greetings friends and fans. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your snow bound doggie reporter
Chester L. W. Spaniel.

It looked like this on Thursday night at 10pm: 

By midnight it looked like this:

In the morning it was a winter wonderland! 

Whoa! A bit deep, I'd say.

Here's Dad clearing the driveway. That was a big job! Around here, they call this heart attack snow, because it's so heavy. It's a good thing he had the roaring dragon noisy scary snow machine blower monster thing to help out!

The snow on the bush at the right looks like a gargoyle.

Ghostwriter had to go to work. Fortunately the snow plows had been working all night and the roads were in good shape.

Today the snow is already starting to melt a bit. But it's still pretty deep and heavy. 

I haven't seen any squirrels around the last couple days. I think the snow's too deep for them!

Squirrels. Pfft!

It was kind of tough for me to zoom around in it too. 

It's up to my chin here!

But I got lots of yum yum doggie treats for posing out in the snow.

We actually saw a little sunshine this afternoon. But it soon clouded over again. 

Here are a few more snow pictures for our friends who live in warmer climates.

Ryan had some fun in the snow and went sledding with his family today. 


One other story from this week: Ghostwriter was driving home along the NY State Thruway after visiting Oma on Monday. Just before the Pembroke exit, all traffic was made to exit because of one crazy guy. See link to article below. Ghostwriter got stuck in a huge traffic jam, as all the thruway traffic, including trucks, got rerouted along the country roads and then through the town of Batavia. It took her several extra hours to get home that day!

Oh, and a quick note to all our Blogville friends. Our Oma has been sick and was in the hospital last week. She's getting better now. But we've gotten behind on reading everyone's bloggies. We'll try to catch up as best we can. 


  1. Oh Chester, you snow is FABulous!!!!! Okays, I bets you would have loved our snow betters ( I say OUR snow, butts it's all in the hills and mountains...sadly.) ~ ours is the light fluffy powder that is FABulous for zoomies and stuffs! I just got rain. sigh. I am glads everyone is okay in that incident....we get lots of that here ☺. I'm glads that your Oma is getting betters now...I will send some POTP and lots of AireZens her way, and some margaritas for your Moms ♥
    Ruby ♥

  2. Look at all of that fabulous snow! I am sooooo jealous!
    Traffic jams are such a cramp.

  3. We heard about that monster snow heading your way. Boy the weather geeks were right.
    We are in 200% amazement at how quickly your major roads are cleared. Just 3 or 4 inches can keep us snowbound. Your snow crew deserves tons of KUDOS!!

    It only takes one crazy person to mess up things right?

    Extra hugs to OMA and GW and you and Dad
    Madi your bfff

  4. Great report, C. We had some snow, but it was NOT up to my chin. I think you were very brave out there. So were your parents. We hope Oma is feeling 100% better soon.

    Love and licks,

  5. Whoa!! You've got so much snow! Glad your dad has a big noisy machine! Our paws are crossed for your Oma. Hope she feels better soon.

    Momo & Pinot xoxo

  6. That's quite a bit of snow. Mom used to live in Cleveland and remembers her first morning there after moving from several states away and there was 30 inches. Abby Lab

  7. We've had so much fun playing in the snow the past few days. We have our paws crossed for you Oma and hope she feels better soon.

  8. That is some serious snow, Chester! At least the squirrels are staying away!
    Sending POTP that Oma keeps feeling better!
    Jakey, Arty & Rosy

  9. We got snow too but not as much as you. sending POTP for your Oma
    Hazel & Mabel

  10. I left before the snow arrived at my sister's and over here it is just cold: no snow (well, hardly anyway).

    Gute Besserung zu Oma von uns allen: Mara, Brom, Fräulein Oswin und Maus aus Norwegen!

  11. So that is where the big snow we were SUPPOSED to get went!

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

    Murphy & Stanley

  12. We are sorry about the snow. It is not a little dog's friend. I amm sorry your mom got stuck in bad traffic because of a crazy person.

  13. You got way more snow than we did, wow wee! Sorry your GW had to have all that extra waiting and driving. Sending get well wishes for your Oma.
