I always wondered what 14 INCHES of snow looked like...


Well, I no longer have to wonder!


The snow began on Friday morning around 7:00am, just as I was getting ready to leave for work. By the time I left to come home that evening, there were about 4 inches of snow on the ground.





Keep in mind that Nali's legs measure about 20 inches...






Maia was struggling to move around to say the least!






The little elf was ready to come in much sooner than the big one,



who would be happy to stay out in her winter wonderland all day if we let her!



Nali stayed at the window all day, mesmerized by the snow. The snow didn't stop until around noon on Saturday. We made sure to go out and play in it before the sun went down, especially since we weren't sure how long it would stick. I'm glad we did because today the temperature was back up to 45 degrees, so half the pretty turned into icky. Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of me and my husband, but I don't know that I would trust the safety of the camera around his silly antics! We enjoyed the weekend so much, and were sad to see everything start to melt away today. I also wish I would have gotten pictures of all the numerous snowmen we saw everywhere, but I am pleased with the pictures I did get since we are so easily entertained by the dogs!

How fun!! Can you guys send some more of that our way? It kinda puts our few inches of slush to shame!

I'm glad you all had so much fun! The dogs look like they couldn't be happier, Nali, especially. Isn't it so beautiful at first?

I think my Phoebe would have drowned in that snow! She had a hard enough time with our 2 inches. I'm going to post some videos of her first snow experience soon. I would have loved to have seen 14 inches though, wow

When my little Texas dog visited Louisville during one of their spring snow storms, she wouldn't even leave the front porch! It is funny to see how dogs react!

My Grandparents live in Louisville so would visit fairly often.

Thanks for sharing the fun pictures!
