The dogs and I are going a little stir crazy in the house.  One more day of this and hopefully it will be over for this year.  20" of heavy wet snow - 45 - 50 mph wind gust - ice pellets hitting your face.  I tried to get a pic of Elsie outside but she was in no mood.  Elsie is still working on accepting the two little old men in her life.  Progress was made when Meeko snuck in bed with Elsie - Elsie let him, but it was understood "No Snuggling!"  Meeko and Max are happy little Yorkies and while they do have personalities - a cairn is much more interactive.    Elsie does not hesitate to venture out in the snow storm.  She is wonderful.   Meeko and Max?  "No thank you." absolutely no interest.  I guess since they were rescued from a snow bank they are a little skeptical.  😒  My two cows, Maggie and Panda, are tucked away inside the barn.  They are due to calve, but so far no babies.  I'm sure there will be calving horror stories after the storm passes.  Everybody hang in there!

Great to hear from you, Lori!  Good grief, it looks brutal there.  Fingers crossed that the storm passes and you'll see the sun tomorrow!

Read about the storms up there and wondered how you were getting on. Thanks for checking in and updating us. Two little old old men -  what a chuckle! Elsie will gradually accept them I'm sure.

Stay safe all of you.

Omg Lori...I thought this only happened north of your border this time of year!  Glad you don’t have your herd of pregnant cows..two can fit nicely in a barn though. Can’t imagine being a farmer and trying to save wet new born calves in the weather you are having . 

Stay safe and warm. The two little ones are smart...they would drown in all that snow. Elsie is a true terrier..fearless of the weather

Lori... It appears as though you've gone from winter to winter, with no break in between for spring and summer!😱

Please tell me that snow-covered shape is not a calf!... I'm serious. The shape looks like it could be a head, and I'm concerned.

Oh Lori - looks about the same here... On Tuesday we raked the yard and saw that crocus and scilla were blooming.  Then on Wednesday afternoon it started to snow.  And it is still snowing (the photos don't really show it, but it is...).  I have a spring art sale tomorrow, and I think folks are going to be too grumpy to come out. Everywhere the dogs look, it's cold...Oban definitely has an opinion.
