I Hesitate to even Write This: "Snow"

fog bank with snow inside

Hi guys! Hope your weekend was good? Sunny if not warm? Today I have---yes, big sigh---snow pictures to share. Now I know we're all sick and tired of snow but, well, it's all I got here. Lots of snow.
Snow beaches and sequin-sparkling turquoise water:

The first set was taken from a moving car the day after the big storm. We're driving through the outer beaches and then over the bridges to the mainland.

Because the snow is so deep, the beach is still inaccessible. Not even the bird sanctuary is open for walking. I walked here in the marina instead. Views are north over the bay and marshes, to the mainland.

Here's my little guy in the snow on Thursday night. We couldn't go out that night into the storm, so Mo played on the deck. I shovelled all day and only managed to keep this small space clear.

This is my partial February dog walking log [I forget to log in about half the time]. Considering the temperatures were mostly below 20* and that there were days Mo and I could not get out at all---and for safety I had to eliminate our evening long walk---I think Mo and I did okay.  31 hours / 42 miles in single digit wind chills! Good thing Mo's a tough little man.

Sunny days are coming! Bringing the dreaded, unattractive THAW?

[I hate spring....]
