The storm is over (although the wind still blows at 25 mph), and the dogs and I decided we needed fresh air and to get out.
It is amazing how quickly the snow disappears, and how it crunches underfoot while it is melting: there is hardly any slush. Lots of mud though, as Emma can attest; she needed a quick rinse with the hose when we got home. I could not help but put in a picture of our "snowdog", Shawna. She had a ball today.
Here is the ranch "in the dead of winter".
