So yeah, I don't know what the official totals are yet, but we got a lot of snow...for us. The east coasters will laugh, but it's rare for this part of the country to get more than 6 inches of snow or more at a time. We just get much more frequent storms. I'm guessing we got at least a foot yesterday, and I'm not going anywhere today. Called into work (and the university, minus the hospital, is closed to non-essential personnel anyway), and school is cancelled. Spent some time digging out this morning, will go dig out a bit more after [livejournal.com profile] melstav finishes running the snow-blower over both our driveways/sidewalks (damn I'm going to be spoiled living here).

It's probably been forever since I posted, but yeah, school is intense this term already. My grades last term were quite good, so I'm hoping I can keep that up, but yeah, the practical course is kicking my butt a bit. And I'm not the only one.

The dogs are good! And will be enjoying the snow, for sure. We played a bit yesterday, and I'll try to get some new snow pictures today :-)

In the mean time, have some pictures from Saturday, when the sun was shining, and there was a lot of competition for the sunny spot on the big fluffy dog bed:

Yeah, black dogs in the sun, the cell phone doesn't quite know how to handle that, but hey.

Nika, since she hasn't had much camera time lately:

I'll pull out the good camera today. I need to update on Riley's ear, it healed really well, but yeah, it looks different from the other one. And it seems a bit prone to getting funky-smelling, like just the start of a fungal infection, so the cleanings are happening often, much to her dismay.

It was still dark when I posted this! I'll get some later today, the sun has come out (and it's freakishly cold), so I need to find the dog coats and get to work. In the mean time, I leave you with the Detroit Free Press's gallery: http://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/2015/02/02/detroit-snowstorm-record/22732717/

Whoa! they make it look like a mess, and no fun at all.

I trust you to find the fun in it. :)

SUN!
It's still snowing here. I love it.
I miss not being in the snow belt. And not sure what you mean about the east coasters? They don't get a lot of snow in general (other than perhaps Maine?) Maybe I'm just still pissed at New england this morning.

Oh, on the east coast, even down near Baltimore where my parents are, they seem to get a Nor'easter every couple of years that dumps 2-3 feet of snow at once. It doesn't stick around long, but it pretty much cripples the city for a few days at least each time. The clippers that come across the midwest just don't have as much moisture in them, so unless you're in a snow-effect band like Buffalo, yeah, not quite so much snow at a time.

Because I lived in the main snow belt until I lived here, I still call myself from Cleveland! You're right re: the clipper, but we get affected by the lake from those. Funny, that although I rarely go to to any beach, I'm completely in love with the lake.

PS: I am really glad though we don't live in Buffalo, though I do love that city!
