Another Snowstorm…

Just when I thought this winter couldn’t get any worse, this was our morning walk today. Only kidding, April Fools! “That’s not funny, Will” Today is our second real-life-actual-for-serious-spring-weather-day in a row! There is hope. Not only that, but yesterday we actually saw something which I
Just when I thought this winter couldn’t get any worse, this was our morning walk today.

Only kidding, April Fools!

“That’s not funny, Will”

Today is our second real-life-actual-for-serious-spring-weather-day in a row! There is hope. Not only that, but yesterday we actually saw something which I almost forgot existed.

A blaze of color and movement caught our eye. We haven’t seen much movement or color in the past five months. After I rubbed my eyes though, it was still there…

A robin! Spring must really be here

It was just one of those days where your tail wags a little higher than usual

As we meandered around the park, I realized it was the first day this year we have gone outside not to do anything in particular, but just to be outside. It’s a great feeling to have sun over our heads and grass under our feet/paws again.

Eko was so happy, he decided to give planet Earth a big hug. DSC04806-1

“Oh, how I’ve missed you.”

We’re looking at spring showers for the next few days, but provided karma doesn’t kick me in the butt for making a joke about another storm, I think we’ve seen the last of year’s snow.

As is our annual custom, Eko and I are taking the day off.  The rest of the world has foolishness covered for today, but we have 364 other days to fill with nonsense, shenanigans and general tomfoolery.

Comments for Another Snowstorm…

  1. I KNEW it was a joke because we get your weather right after you!!!!!! We are enjoying the warmer temps too!

    We had a dusting of snow but lots of ice this morning and are getting a snow storm on Thursday, no joke! Hope you don’t have to get any of the snow after it leaves our place. We are starting to remember and like grass under our paws even if it is still brown.

    It was cold up here in the Northland with a few ice pellets. I got sooooo cold with the wind when Mommy and I went out for me to do my business I was shivering when she picked me up to bring me back inside.–Steffi

  7. Caitlin says:

    You almost got me! I live here too and was like, wait what I didn’t see that!

  8. Going outside to do nothing in particular….heaven for an animal.

  9. ThatJenK says:

    You laugh, but that’s ACTUALLY what spring looks like here. No joke!
    (Yes, I’m jealous)

  10. You know you jinxed yourself don’t you…
    I really hope that all of you folks in the snowy states don’t see anymore of that stuff till 2015!

  11. Ha! When I saw that I panicked a bit because we usually get Chicago weather hours later in Michigan… nope, still nice out.

    My dogs have really appreciated the warmer weather for walking.

  12. scarlybobs says:

    Wow your robins look so different to ours…our robins are squat little fat things!! 😀

  14. Hilarious! It sure fooled me. Glad you’re getting some spring.

  15. Great post, Will and Eko! You got me! Love the shot of Eko hugging the Earth. So glad you have promising signs of Spring after such a torrid Winter. Enjoy!

  16. You had us going there for a minute! HAPPY sunshine, spring to you!
    Wally & Sammy

    Enjoy the spring weather, hope it lasts!

  18. Jorie says:

    You nearly got me! I was like, oh Will must be in Minnesota or North Dakota (didja hear about their massive blizzard yesterday?!). Thank goodness Chicago was spared. Bring on spring!

  19. pawedblog says:

    oh you pesky pair! I really felt for you then. lol
    Yes, your robins seem different to ours, still it’s just as exciting to see one and I love the photo Eko ‘hugging the earth’
    Hugs, Carrie (Myfie, Ellie and Millie) x

  20. OhMelvin says:

    An Earth hug! Perfection!

  21. It does feel great to finally get out without winter coats, gloves and boots (ha typed boats first). We’ve just enjoyed two days in a row and today a nice 8 C or 48F….hey feels tropical really.

    Thank you for hugging Earth Eko, that will bring us spring luck for sure. I haven’t spotted a Robin yet, but then again, it’s only been two days, hehe.
