Wow! I'd never have thought I'd be (almost) longing for snow! Let's just say that I'm appreciating it more this year than most. I've loved the mild winter we've had, but I do welcome the beauty of snow.

4th one is soooo pretty. We're getting our first real snow fall of the season.
So much so, that when I flung the dog out this morn she almost disappeared!

Reminds me of a heavy snowfall ( about 18") years ago when we were still living in Maryland - I had shoveled a path from our back door starting towards the garden plot, but left it incomplete. When the door was opened, one of our cats came bounding out, went off the path into the deep fluff, and stopped with absolutely the most stunned expression I've ever seen on a cat!

Animals are so fun to watch in new situations aren't they?

Funny. I'd love to have seen that.

Your story reminds me of something that happened to my cat...in many ways she acted like a dog; she'd come when she was called, would follow me around, and try to follow my two sisters on their walks (they'd have to bring her back 'cause she wouldn't turn around..and they didn't want her to follow them the full 4 miles!)...but I digress (surprise, surprise). I'm guessing I was about 14 or 15 when it happened...we'd had snow and then a bit of rain that froze leaving a layer of ice on the surface of the snow. I was walking down the path on the hill that led to our lower back yard where my dad had the garden. I was crunching through the ice into the snow and slowly making my way down the hill. My cat came to the edge of the steep slope and started straight down to meet me at the bottom, however, she wasn't able to crunch through the layer of ice and slipped, sliding the whole way down--the wire garden fence stopped her--I'm thinking it had some give to it, but it couldn't have felt too good. I remember checking her out, carrying her back up and her being no worse for wear.

All of that because suunto's cat ended up in some deep fluff.
