Nature Friday - First Big Snow of The Year!

Thanks to Rosy and Sunny for hosting this event. (Aside, their Christmas countdown is the cutest thing ever, be sure to check them out - Lady has been breaking her no social media daily rule just because they are bringing the joy!)

While we have had a little snow on the ground since November 22nd, we got our first big snowfall on December 3rd/4th. While the worst of the snow came overnight, Sunday afternoon it was coming down quickly, in big beautiful flakes. Lady took us for a hike in the sugar bush to enjoy the first few inches.

It was beautiful. 

Look at how snowy we were in the first few minutes on the trail.

Lady made us practice sitting. She said next time she may bring the Man and some hats as it would make a beautiful hat tax location . . . . .

We were really interested in this tree. Lady guesses the wildlife have been eating it. 

Lady is working hard to embrace the winter season (even if it is technically still autumn). She is not a lover of it. Mostly she is not a lover of putting on all the clothes to go out and she has an extreme phobia about winter driving/traveling. We are going to help her embrace this and we expect to share many pictures from the sugar bush and the neighbourhood in the coming months. 

Here are some pictures from 7 am the following morning.


  1. wow... that is it... the starto of the song... dashing through the snow...

  2. I would feel the same way as Lady does, even just putting on a sweater yesterday was a pain. i can tell you are both happy with the gorgeous snow, and that is a lot for this early I think.. have fun. tell your Lady to drive slow and careful, i would be afraid also.

  3. We had to laugh at the 4th picture down of you, Phod. You don't seem to think that wearing hats in your beautiful snow is a great idea☺ Please send some snow my way!

  4. 100% you two are living in the real live marshmallow world.....but wait was there a mole or vole or chipmunk hiding there?
    Hugs Cecilia

  6. Gail and I love your Big Snow pictures, although we do think that very cold weather is best experienced on a computer screen...
