Fun in the Snow

A little fun in the snow today.

This is not me, by the way - that's Garrison.

Garrison pulled out the old sled and talked me into trying it. That was a blast, but very exhausting! We'd be in much better physical shape if it snowed much around here because just the effort of walking on level ground is a workout. Walking uphill is a ramped up workout. See, that's the thing about sledding downhill. Going down is so easy, but coming back up is not.

The horses watched Garrison go by. They think we're nuts.

Great photos. Tell Garrison he has the urban bank robber look down pat.

You guys really got a lot of snow. I hope your waterpipes and heating all stay functional

Haha, I'll tell him. He'll probably think that's an achievement. I think this is the most snow we've had in many years. So far so good with the pipes - hot and cold.

Oh that looks like fun but not for my elderly bones. We had 9" in North Central AR. How many inches did you have.

I wonder if my Luckie would like a sleigh ride? She hates the water and is not too fond of the snow.

Nitwit (I feel bad about calling you that!)

It was loads of fun. We got around 8" by the house and closer to a foot down at the creek bottom. Garrison made me try the sled head first...that was scary at first, but I was laughing so hard by the time I reached the bottom of the hill, I was glad I did it.

The dogs loved the snow. But they didn't ride the sled.
