A Work Day

Mom has been getting on me for not helping her at work, so I went in yesterday. 
I got to see a bunch of my peeps.  I pretty much grew up in mom's office, so I miss seeing some of my old friends. 
Mom hopes I will be working more once the wet stuff stops dripping from the sky.

Wait a minute...LIONS?
Aren't I supposed to be chasing these things?!??

The Dragon Went on Vacation

So, the snowpacolypse continued.  Mom was keeping me company during one of our snow days, the dragon just picked up and left.  Guess he wanted to go somewhere warmer with no snow and ice.  Can't say I blamed him.  But, dang.  I really missed him.  Mom made me wear my fleece all day and sleep with two blankets on.
It was so chilly that I even wore my blankie when I ate my lunch!

The cold, ice, rain, snow, and wind continued and it looked really ominous out.  
Luckily, the dragon only went on a short vacation.  He was back the next night and we were all cheering.  Not that he doesn't deserve a vacation, but the last time he went (2006), he was gone for 10 days!!!! 
My auntie's dragon went on a 6-day vacation this year.  You'd think they'd plan it during the summer!!!

Anyway, after the snow, ice, rain, and wind stopped, it was time to do some clean up.
So we did a little shopping around for a chain saw.  
There were only like 2 left in town, so we weren't too picky.
Then mom and dad did lots of noisy work and had big piles of tree parts all around the yard.
They got most of the rest of it done yesterday, but its been a few days of hard work to get things cleaned up.
I let her get a day of rest before making her help me get caught up on the blog.

Hope you're all having a warm, safe winter and I hope your dragons wait 'til July to vacation!!

Catch up from Snowpocalypse 2012

So, we've finally dug out and cleaned up from our crazy snow storm.  You remember that last picture from 1.15.12, Our Furrst Snow?  Well, it just kept snowing, and snowing.  

I played in the snow a little bit, but mostly mom kept me entertained in the warm house:
It was really coming down outside.

 This is what it looked like during our walk.  We rarely get this much snow around here.

Mom measured the snow at one point, but we probably got another inch after this.

 One of our big trees out front lost some of his arms.  Poor guy.  The snow was just super heavy.

Then, it started raining, which, of course, turned to ice.  You can see the ice on our window.
Needless to say, mom stayed home from work.  Mom's thing is that this happens so rarely around here that  people don't know how to drive in it.   Plus they don't clear the streets.
So she decided to be safe and spend over a week at home with me.

The poor trees were all bendy.

Mom was really worried about our neighbor's tree falling on our house.  Check out all the icicles off our roof!

We played a little out in the snow. Mom threw me a few snow balls.

You can see here when it started raining, ending up with about an inch of ice on top of the 7 inches of snow.

Our bamboo wasn't too happy, but mom thought it looked pretty covered in ice.

Our pond almost totally froze over!

So the cold and snow and freezing rain continued for days.  
Stay tuned for 'The Dragon Went on Vacation' (aka: we lost power)
