Snow Day

Snow in New Mexico? It happens. I spent many a day in Alaska cursing the white powdery fluff, but down here, it is a welcome surprise.

We awoke to find a blanket of six inches of fresh snow. A mere hiccough in the exhalations of winter storms as far as Alaska is concerned, but down here in New Mexico, this warrants a school closure. Woohoo! And I'm not the only one who's glad about staying home on a snow day.

It was a great day to make a new friend.

As for Ranger, he had never seen snow before. He hopped up into the back of the pickup truck and required much coaxing to come down and play.

We finally convinced him that snow is fun.

Except for face shots.

 Poor puppy.

Time to get even.

Just to prove that we really are in New Mexico and not visiting Alaska. See. Ever see a snowy cactus in Alaska? 

Happy snow days all!
