Day 59 - Snow Day!

We got 'the call' at 6:20 this morning. The call I'm talking about is the, "School is closed today. It's a Snow Day." Although we do have to make up for this day later on this year, it's always nice to get a surprise day off. We had a lazy day. Even the pooches were pretty mellow. In the afternoon we decided to shovel off the deck. The dogs went outside but didn't seem to be happy about the big fluffy snowflakes landing and melting on their fur. I had the camera, trying to take pictures of snowflakes. You'd think it'd be easy with big fluffy snowflakes. Not so. Anyway, I decided to step inside and a few seconds later Dexter decided he wanted to be inside as well. Talk about sad puppy dog eyes.

the eyes! I like this in B&W but am curious to see what it looked like in color.

Such soulful eyes!

Though they will cancel the school buses here when the roads are treacherous, they almost never cancel school. My kids walk and when they were young I used to send them to school anyway. But, since all the bused kids stayed home, mine would sometimes be the only kid in the class! Teachers didn't like me too much! Now, I keep them home on 'snow days' and we enjoy a break from the routine....

What a pitiful expression! Dogs sure know how to turn on the charm when they desire something.
