One force of nature meets another

This is what my patio looked like on Saturday morning.Rhodesian Ridgeback, puppy, chicago, adventure, snow

With a bonus shot of Penny getting snow in her nose

And here’s what my patio looked like Sunday morning:

The blizzard dropped snow for over a day

As if making up for a mild December and January, Mother Nature quickly piled on the powder to kick off February. I couldn’t wait to introduce my little force of nature to her first blizzard. Penny liked her first taste of snow so it was no surprise she dove head first into the blizzard.

Literally, she dove head first into the blizzard

Eko tried to savor the experience

But Penny begged him to romp

The pups and the snow swirled around me

My wildchild Penny couldn’t get enough of barreling through the snow drifts

But, yeah, she’s still learning to brake in winter conditions

One of my favorite traditions is to go for a night time walk after a heavy snowfall. The world is quiet, peaceful and beautiful

At the park, the only sound was the pups’ paws dashing through the snow

One happy girl

Back at home, we settled into the couch, covered with blankets. Blizzards are great for two things – playing outside and curling up inside. Thankfully I have Eko and Penny to help me accomplish both!
