Now You See It, Now You Don't …

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

A few days ago, I was standing in the snow, like in this picture. The next day, it started getting real windy, and the snow melted a little, and then froze and got slippery.

Windy and slippery is not a good combination. Yipes!

As the snow continued to melt, it revealed a monumental mess the birdies had made underneath the feeders with dropped seeds and seed shells.

Gee, I wouldn't make a mess like that!

Me neither. Must be sparrows!

We found another huge mess under the hawthorn tree, where the squirrels had dropped thousands of hawthorn berries on the ground. 

The melting snow revealed yet another mess: tons of bunny poop! Everywhere! We're not going to show you pictures of that. Needless to say, there must be more than one bunny to make that many cocoa puffs!  

Yesterday, there was still some snow left, along with mud and puddles. 

By the afternoon, hardly any snow left in my back yard, and it started raining. Well, I guess I shouldn't be surprised, since this is Western NY and drastic weather changes are common. 

Snow: now you see it. Now you don't!

This morning we woke up and everything was once again covered with snow! 

Go figure!

  1. It must have taken a lot of pee for you to melt all that snow.

  2. You are a very lucky boy, Chester. My snow is all gone and it was not replaced like yours was!

  3. We never lost all our snow up here, Chester, and then we got about 6 inches yesterday. It looks like the snow is going to melt again this coming week so we hope maybe we will start seeing the grass.

  4. Squalls R US...Oh Chester you are such a funny friend. I tell you one thing those poachers in your domain need a refresher course in being a good guests. So Messy.
    I hope your snow is possibly over for this year.
    Hugs to you GW and your photographer.

  5. Our weather has been bouncing around, too, Chester. But only from warm to cold. We don't get any ob dat snow stuff. We can't even buy a drop ob rain! And here, de gophers make de biggest mess.

  6. Wondering what TV Channel you report for? Your weather reports are always spot-on: as in spotting all the poops 'n' puddles 'n' pee 'n' stuff, good job CLWS. We know we can rely on you when it comes to accuracy in forecasting after the fact.

  7. We can't believe how much your snow has melted! We just got like another 15 inches! We would take a mess to be able to sniff around! Lee and Phod

  8. We have been having that roller coaster weather here,too. Right now most of the snow we had (and there was plenty of it), is gone, except for where it was all piled up. It is 43F at 1130pm. We had a lot of wind today...and we will get wintry mix later in the week.

    Those birds do make big messes. We have the same under our feeders. Even the squirrels cannot clear it all away, BOL!

  9. I think we had the same weather here in southern Ontario. Didn't quite get rid of all the snow though but a lot; it's since been replaced.

  10. Dear Chester, we are very sorry to hear that you had been unwell and hope the diagnosis and treatment help you feel all better. We are also sorry to hear that GW's work can't keep employees but are glad she got a week off. Lady's little work place did a collection for a local charity to send things to Ukraine. They were so overwhelmed with some items, they won't take them, which left us with many personal care items. The decision was made to donate those items to a local shelter. Lady said she was proud to work somewhere that was able to help people at home and around the world. Lee and Phod
