Snowbeary gets serious, so does dad...

A week ago today Scruffy & I were watching and waiting.
Waiting and watching for the snow to start. We seriously had our doubts, we figured the snow would once again miss our town as it pretty much had all Winter.

The weather lady had just said it was here. Humph! Nothing!! Then Snowbeary showed up,
started dancing his snow dance behind us. Suddenly we saw flakes land on the patio.
 Then before we could say snowstorm, there it was!
 Dad came home from work and started to shovel the snow. It was a heavy wet snow.
WOW Snowbeary! You finally delivered us a successful snow dance. We had ourselves a measurable snowfall.

Suddenly we heard the roar of a snow blower. Scruffy peeked out the door to which neighbor it belonged.
 Surprise, surprise, it was ours!
Scruffy told us it was dad. That was odd, usually dad just shovels it. This must be serious snow removal. I wondered what was up?
I was eying how high my new made ski hill and wondering if we'd get enough additional snow to smooth the lumps out.  I wanted to use my skis in the worst way.

Dad was just shoveling the front deck, so I asked him if we could come out and play when he was done with the driveway. He told me no, because he was taking mom out to dinner at The Bank. Huh? Since when can you get dinner at the bank?

About a half hour after mom and dad got home my dad's cell phone rang. It was our neighbor telling him our tree lost a big limb. Dad went outside to check it out and take some pictures. He was gone for a long time.
This is what he saw.
One of the big limbs of out huge Crab Apple tree had broken off. It almost hit the house. We asked dad what took him so long? He said that our neighbor and his son had bombarded him with snowballs. Enough said, we knew right then that somebody got to out and play in the snow, but it wasn't us bears. Grrrrr!!!
Grr-bye for now,

That is a LOT of snow Buttons; we're so glad that big tree limb didn't hit your house! You all need to make a snow bear now!

Luckily your home wasn't hit by that tree! Today it was like spring here! G. took her group outside to have a search for spring walk and when we returned at school we played outside till it was time to go home and a lot of other groups joined us! It was fun!

Oooh!!! I was wondering if you were going to get hit by that snowstorm. You're lucky your house didn't get hit! Not so lucky that you didn't get to go outside and play in the snow! I have to say, Snowbeary did a wonderful snowdance!
