THE SNOW MISSED US!

We were supposed to get snow again.
Anywhere from 3 to 10 inches, depending on what TV channel you listened to.
But the snow missed us, (just a few flurries).
Finally the snow is melting!
and everything is muddy.
Well, mostly mud.
My dogs go out to an enclosed patio area that is mostly concrete.
For a very long time they have been going out there and doing their business in the snow and then it would be frozen to the ice before I could scoop it because we've been having windshield factors of sometimes as low as 25 below.
If it wasn't the wind, then it was new snow, which would cover it and now...
it’s all melted out there and I have been literally shoveling shit.

AARRRGGHHHH!

Thanks Tammy.
I just needed to change it up, the last one with the cat was bugging me. So this is just temporary.
Yes, I must get these books out of my head and down on paper.
Well, I have some on paper, bits and pieces but I need to get them together.
I MUST focus!

I'm thankful for two things. That we didn't get any more snow and that I don't have to shovel poop outside...except for the unkind neighbors who occasionally don't clean up their dogs' business off my front yard.

Cynthia Myers said...

Steve,
Those are definitely 2 things to be very thankful for!
Ha!
Unfortunately the poop situation is kinda bad here and I have to do the same thing at work.
I'm kinda losing it!
If this doesn't motivate me enough to get busy doing what's important, I don't know what will.
(That's my feeble attempt at putting a positive spin to it.)
grumble, grumble.

Yuck! But I had a trail of poop to my back gate when the snow melted last week. Why they have to poop the most where I walk...I do not know!

Cynthia Myers said...

Nita,
I agree, Yuck!
I guess I'm kinda lucky in the fact that they walk over to the corners mostly and not where I walk right out to.
Still, it's very gross.

One of the joys having dogs pooping when it's cold :-) I haven't had that problem this winter and I can't say I've missed it :-)

Hasve a great day!

Christer,
Usually in the past I could keep up with the clean up but with this weather it's been impossible!
I woke up this morning to SNOW again!
Grrrr.
