Snowmageddon Aftermath with Ellie & Waffles

ELLIE:  Mr. Waffles, should we go check out all that snow and stuff? Mr. Waffles?

ELLIE:  Mr. Waffles?

WAFFLES:  Sleeping, Ellie. Sleeping.

ELLIE:  You're sleeping? Are you sure?

WAFFLES:  Barely. 

ELLIE:  Barely sure or barely sleeping?

ELLIE:  The snow, Mr. Waffles. Shouldn't we–

WAFFLES:  Go back to sleep? The snow will still be there when we wake up. 

ELLIE:  Promise? 

WAFFLES:  Zzzzzzz....

Snowmageddon - The Aftermath

When we published last week's blog post, the snow was still coming down. We knew it was going to be a big one, but we had no idea we'd be waking up to 3 FEET of the white stuff! We haven't had a really big snow like this all season, so for us it was pretty fun! 

There's nothing quite as visually spectacular as fresh mountain snow. It's almost like living in a beautiful snow globe. 

And the sunrises...they're incredible. 

For Glogirly, this all means lots and lots of skiing. 

This is the view from her favorite run, called Muleshoe, at the local ski area. 

So what about that DRIVEWAY???

This volume of snow means we have to call in the professionals for our driveway. 

So far so good...not a single Fed Ex, UPS, or tow truck has spent the night stuck on it. But this is Colorado and there's likely to be plenty more spring snow. 

In fact as we're writing this, the snow is falling and we expect to wake up to another 6-7" of fresh powder. 


  1. Gorgeous pics of the snow! And Waffles and Ellie snuggling - the cutest!!

  2. Wow, that is a LOT of snow! Or as my human refers to it... nope! (She is not a snow person.)

  3. Way too much snow for our comfort levels...LOL!

    Waffles and Ellie!! OMC!!
    SO cute!

  4. They are so cute the way they love each other!

  5. Pretty sure Waffles and Ellie have the right idea

  6. That is the sweetest dearest picture(s) of Waffles and Ellie. I wish humans were like that. And the snow...spectacular.

  7. Beautiful scenery and the snow...unfortunately, I'm not a fan of the white stuff. So glad Waffles and Ellie are such good buddies.

  10. What beautiful snow you have. Great snow blower too

  11. You two are so cute cuddling together. That was a lot of snow!

  12. Beautiful pictures. However, Hemingway, Steinbeck and I all agree that you can keep it. We have brown ground again and that's just fine for us. We all love the pictures of Waffles and Ellie. They are so adorable together!!!

  13. Whoa! I can't believe all that snow! ~Ernie

  14. I would love to go snowboarding on some fresh snow. I'm hoping spring is here for a while in Massachusetts. Waffles and Ellie have a good idea for a snowy day too.

  15. They are the cutest couple of lovebirds.

  16. Look at those two...just too adorable!

  17. Beautiful pictures ! Those two were made for each other, they are too cute ! Purrs

  18. Please keep your snow. Ours all went away and we don't want to see more. Waff has the best idea, just keep sleeping.

  19. Waffles, we couldn't agree with you more with getting a good nap in and with that amount of snow, it will be there for a long time to come. Thanks for sharing the sweet photos of you two. Have a great rest of your day.
