Ellie's First Snowmageddon

ELLIE:  Mr. Waffles! What's all this white stuff???

WAFFLES:  It's snow, Ellie. A LOT of snow. A LOTTA LOTTA snow.

ELLIE:  What are we supposed to do with it? Make snow angels? Eat it?

WAFFLES:  I'll pass on the snow angels. And eating it is pretty overrated. Tastes like super cold water. 

WAFFLES:  Glogirly went skiing today. 

ELLIE:  Like outside? In the snow???

WAFFLES:  That's the general idea. She straps those big sticks onto her feet and swooshes down the mountain.

ELLIE:  You mean on purpose???

WAFFLES:  She's a little crazy. 

Powder Day!

If you saw the national news this past weekend, you couldn't miss the big snowmageddon storm that hit Colorado. So far we have 3+ feet here at the mountain house. And at the local ski area, Glogirly and her ski buddy Bob had a chance to ski in thigh high powder. It was a bucket list kind of day for our girl. 

As we're writing this, it's STILL snowing. 

So tomorrow, if Bob can make it down and up our driveway road, they're going to do it all again!  (Yup, that's Bob coming down our "driveway" in his Jeep to pick up Glogirly and her skis. 4WD, chains, and it was still a challenge to get out!)


  1. Wow, that is a LOT of snow indeed!! Way too much...and we live in Michigan...don't get stuck in that stuff.

    Enjoy the skiing though, Petcretary tried it once, nearly broke her leg and that was the end of that! LOL! So she stuck with the other kind...cross country. And yes she falls down with that too, but its not on the steepest ski runs...

  2. We think we'll keep our paws dry and warm!!! That's a LOT of snow!

  3. OMC! We were thinking of you all when we heard about this. Stay inside and stay warm!

  4. That driveway is like an unexpected obstacle course!!! Hoping Glogirly had fun skiing and that Ellie is enjoying the wonders of snow, safely tucked inside the Mountain House!!!

  5. That sounds like fun for Glogirly and Gloman but we feel like you do. Keep that snow off our feeties

  6. WOWZA!! I wondered how you were doing in the mountains! Glad to see you made good use of that snow! Our family in Denver went to their mountain home in Colorado this weekend, I thought it was a bad weekend to go but maybe they had fun like you did! BTW LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your jacket and was looking for one with fur that color on the hood. Where did you find it?

  7. My human says that is a big NOPE for her! MOL

  8. You go Glogirly! That sounds like a lot of fun.

  9. We agree with Summer's human ! But we're glad Glogirly is enjoying that white stuff and have fun ! Purrs

  10. Wow, three plus feet. That kind of snow would keep us inside for weeks. Ellie and Waffles, we hope you two stay warm and cozy until Glogirly gets back from here fun time skiing. Thanks for sharing. Have a great rest of your week.
