We Don't Really Get Snow

Our elevation simply isn't high enough for snow. When it snows, it's usually slushy and doesn't stick. On the 30th we had just enough snow to turn the yard into mud. Yes, the dogs go out in it. They have a dog door and are allowed out whenever they want, and they love precipitation. Any kind will do. Heavy rains will drive them back into the house, after they've gotten soaked.

I think we've had more freezing nights so far this year than all last winter combined. Everything was frosted this morning, the dog water was frozen and I had to break a half inch of ice in the water tank.

Snow is nice to look at, but really, I'm glad it rarely gets any closer. I'm too well acclimated to the heat to like the cold.
