fatoldlady's Journal, 15 January 2013

When I sent the dogs out this morning a got a nice big wiff of warm wet air, its really chinooking out there. Had to rush and shovel all of the snow off my walkway though and because I waited for it to warm up it was heavy wet snow instead of the light fluffy stuff. These chinooks can stay for a few days or even a week or they can disappear in a matter of hours and then everything that was all nice and melty turns to pure ice.

Took the dogs out for a walk and I was slipping and sliding all the way. I am a bit more agile without all the extra weight and the ice isn't quite as scary. It was nice to be out without my furry hat, gloves and scarf. But the dogs were full of piss and vinegar from being cooped up and they had totally forgotten their ice training from last year. I had them so that when I said "slow, slow, slow" they wouldn't pull and knock me off balance on the ice. Have to retrain them now.

All the snow is melting off of the roof and I have buckets under the downspouts gathering up all that nice snow melt water. Hopefully won't have to shovel snow into the garage for a while to water my houseplants.

It's been quite warm in Maryland. I don't think I've worn an overcoat in the past week. Ice is so scary. I broke my butt on icy steps a few years ago (I stupidly had stuff in both hands and wasn't holding onto the rail). Had to use one of those donut pillows. I later bought some ice cleats for when it's bad (not this winter so far). Your dogs sound like such fun - and such wonderful companions.

A young friend used to borrow Ozzy and have Oz pull him along on his roller skates, they got up to quite a speed.....ever thought of sledging with the dogs, or do you call it sledding?

Hi FOL! Loved your comment about diet fatigue. How apt a description! Your dogs sound like a real handful, but so much fun! They are happy little fellas too.... and I know they keep you young! Be careful in that ice! We are due for our share of some of that heavy wet snow today., too. It is 37 degrees here and odd looking skies. Have a great day!!!!
