This is your mountain weather dog with the latest blizzard update

The high yesterday was 14 degrees Fahrenheit.  The conditions were not fit for man, woman or beast.  Power outages were caused by the 60 plus mph winds.  We lost power as temperatures plummeted to 11 degrees last evening and wind chills…well the feels like was too cold for even this beast.  Dec 13 am blizzard conditions      Accurate snow measurements are impossible.  As you can see much of it has blown into drifts and the rest has blown off our ledge onto the road below.  You can’t tell if the snow is coming down or coming across or blowing from higher elevations . 

I hear from our friends The Thundering Herd that they are having a blast! 

Meanwhile, my friend Riley, got cheated!  And out in the Rockies where you would expect them to be buried…K and R are enjoying the scenery still waiting for the big one. 

Now for travel warnings. ThinkingThe roads here are covered with ice and snow.  The snowplows do what they can, but the temperatures are too low for snow melts to melt.  Don’t venture out unless you have four wheel drive. 

Time for a nap…the cold weather is exhausting!  Resting after battlin' the snow and wind


  1. Do you live in MN? We don't have mountains but the weather sounds like an everyday thing here....Mr. Winter can be out of control somedays....

  2. Wind is the worst! I can take cold temps but wind chills are just too much!


  3. It was very windy here today. It's supposed to snow again Thursday, hopefully it'll stick and we won't get cheated again! It was about 27 here today so it was cold enough for snow but it just didn't snow today. Have fun in the snow but try to stay warm!!
