and BAM, it's winter!

It's a good thing that we prairie folk are hearty because Mother Nature didn't even give us a skiff of snow in October to prepare us for winter.  She deluded us into thinking that our lovely autumn weather would last forever.

Case in point:
this picture was taken Thursday just before sunset.

Here is a similar view taken from my kitchen window yesterday.
No more autumn for us.  Uh, uh.  Nosiree Bob.

As usual, the shelties are thrilled with the snow.
Robbie knows that he looks gorgeous against the snow.

Austin was so excited he couldn't wait to tell me about it.

Cooper got the zoomies.

Then he posed nicely while he caught his breath.

And where was Bentley?
Ready to go back into the house.  He doesn't have nearly as much fur as the shelties.

I will leave you with some stunning sunset skies from Thursday, before the snow.

Interesting that the sky was purple.  A year ago the sky turned purple before snow.

I envy you your snow! I want it too! The zoomies! I have to remember that word. That's what ours get too, but I call it puppy run. We had 17C today, and the next two days will be around 15C. At least it's dry now, and the dogs are not too dirty. I love your beautiful dogs. You don't show us photos of them all nearly often enough!

I will have to watch out for a purple sky!! Yuk snow....I only like it at Christmas. It seems like when western Canada is cold then the east is mild.
Your doggies are so very pretty Susan :-)

We seem to be getting the warnings this year although we did plummet from 90F weather to 40F overnight. Now we're starting to see snow but nothing that is sticking around for long. Penny will be more then happy to play in the snow again but Zeus hates it.
