Greetings friends and fans. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your reliable doggie reporter
Chester L. W. Spaniel here for more on-going coverage of Winter Storm Harper.
We survived it! Yesterday morning I went out and this is how it looked.
Chest deep, fluffy snow, and a bitterly cold wind.
The guys we hired to plow the driveway this winter made a huge mountain of snow in front of the house. Ghostwriter said she and Dad had to do some extra shoveling to clear the way for her car to get out of the garage, but otherwise it was OK.
I spent a lot of time sitting on the couch looking towards the dining room window.
There were lots of nice birdies visiting the feeders.
We've never seen so many cardinals, juncos, and nuthatches all at once before. Gordy Whitebeak and his team of juncos took up residence at the Sparrows Inc. Winter Lodge in the Sticks. A flock of gold finches sat in the pear tree and took turns eating sunflower seeds.
It was dark and dreary most of the day. We got a little tiny glimpse of sunlight just before it set.
Oh, and guess what? Ghostwriter got called into work! She had to be there from 11pm until 3am. Blah!!! She said the roads were all plowed, but they were slippery. As long as she kept driving around 40mph, it was OK. No one else was
foolish enough to be on the road during that time. It was -5º while she drove home! She said she saw the moon, but didn't get to watch the eclipse.
We hope everyone is safe and warm.
Oh, and one more thing. My Jason human went to a wedding during the storm on Saturday! They are friends of his. The wedding got some publicity. Here's a link:
