Winter came late, but dang it's cold!
It usually starts to get pretty cold by the end of November, and snow usually picks up by that time and heavy snow starts by mid to late December - that is, at least, in my experience being here in Wisconsin the last eight years. I had a family photo shoot scheduled for December 10th last year, and I had to reschedule it because surprisingly there was no snow.
The snow came mid-January, and oh the boys are happy! Well, Ein is happy but I don't know about Hans. He does not like the rain or the cold, but ironically he loves swimming and the snow. Weird pup.
Is it too early to tell?
Well it's already December in Oshkosh, Wisconsin and we haven't had a good snow just yet. There was supposed to be a blizzard today and we were supposed to get about five inches of snow. It's almost midnight and nothing. Some places did quite a lot tho, so I think for some reason it totally skipped our home.
While I wallow in my disappointment that I didn't get my white, fluffy snow - most of the people here are glad. For reasons that I understand, but can't justify myself, I know why many people here do not like the snow. It's cold, it makes the streets icy and harder to drive, you have to shovel or blow the snow and on, and on. Well I do not hate doing any of those, and I actually would choose to blow the snow rather than mowing the lawn.
It's that most wonderful time of the year....
I definitely love this season, and this year we celebrated Yule as a family, away from home, in a small, cozy cabin by the Brule River right on the border of Wisconsin and Michigan.
Ein, our dear Snappagator, is growing up so fast! I honestly don't know how many times I'm going to say that throughout the course of his life but probably until he's three or four, or until the next puppy. Hans is a big pup so while he'll always be my puppy, it does feel like he's grown up already.
Ein, on the other hand, is smol and is expected to remain smol. But what does his small paws love? Just like big brother Hans, he also loves the snow!
Our boys are definitely loving it! Hans loves to play in snow but he gets enough of it after a few minutes. Granted his fur isn't that thick (and he's so big it's hard to find a good coat), Ein is fluffy and welp, looks like he's a snow dog at heart.
Hey, it's me!
I've always loved to write. Not saying I'm good at it, but hey this is the story of my life!
