Had the pleasure of sitting through a samll blizzard this past week. The snow is deperately needed. Only problem is it was horizontal snow. Where there was something to stop it some nice drifts formed. There just wasn’t enough snow to make nice big drifts. There is a vacant lot at the end of the street with a chicken coop. The woner uses it for storage. Along the alley is equipment and old machinery stacked by the fence. Great dwellings for little critters. The fence and equipment made some nice drifts.
As I ventured down the alley my two little black mutts followed. At first they were hesitant because they could not get through the drifts. Finally the male jumped through the snow. Theis gave the little female some courage. With some extra effort she hopped and jumped in and out of the snow. A little black snow plow bucking the drift. Where one goes the other is some where close.
It’s springtime on the high plains. Great day to venture out in the white stuff.
