Does anyone else find it strange to read other bloggers' descriptions of the weather when it is completely different where you are? This morning I read a couple of East coast bloggers who were remarking on the fact that fall had finally arrived.
Here, however, fall is gone. And winter is here instead.
Ta-da! Enjoy the dry roads wherever you are, because it looks like they won't be dry for long.
Last night's storm brought us about five inches of snow, and it gave me a good chance to try out my snow tires on my first snowy drive from our new house this morning. Let me preface this by saying that I do not like driving in the snow. It's scary, and I usually spend the whole drive convinced that I have seconds left to live. Living in the mountains now has heightened this anxiety, since we live up a fairly steep canyon. But, luckily they plow our road really well, and this morning's drive was pretty non-eventful.
The whole day, actually, has been pretty uneventful. I went to run some errands in town, and then I went to a Cardioblast class at my gym. Now I'm cozied up with Haruki, enjoying some CNN and my new hat:
Yup, that's a makeup free picture. I'm not afraid if you all know that I have hair on my upper lip. And, in my defense, I was up every two hours with Haruki, who still has to wear her cone head at night to prevent her from licking herself. She really really really hates the cone, so she woke me about four times panting, knocking her head into me, etc., etc.
This picture does no justice to how hilarious Ruki's cone head behavior is. She is still unused to it, so she has a tendency of cutting corners too close and knocking it into the wall. She's a lot like those elephants in Jumanji, actually.
Luckily for her, David is going to the hardware store tonight to see if he can rig up a cover for her leg that would prevent licking but not freak her out as much as that cone. She has no idea how lucky she is that David is her dog "dad."
*What's the weather like where you are? Do you have a mustache?
