ELLIE:  Mr. Waffles, should we go check out all that snow and stuff, don't cha think? 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, Ellie. The snow will still be there when we wake up. 

ELLIE:  Promise? 

WAFFLES:  Zzzzzzz....

Snowmageddon - The Aftermath

Sunday morning we woke up to nearly TWENTY inches of fresh snow! 

There's nothing quite as visually spectacular as fresh mountain snow. It's 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. In just a couple of days she's headed to Breckenridge, CO to ski with one of her friends from the Women's Ski Program. 

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 snow yet this season! 

The fresh snow often brings out our local deer neighbors. In fact we had a group of seven frolicking up our road. A few of them even laid down in the snow for a rest.



  1. Wow wow wow πŸ™€ lots of lovely snuggles 😽 beautiful white 🌨️❄️ glad your track is getting cleared with no or ups and downs 🎿🎿🌨️πŸ”️⛷️😽

  2. Skiing looks wonderful! And stay warm kitties!

  3. We got one good snowstorm last month. Weird for WI. We are having warm weather. Looks so pretty where you live.

  4. Seeing Waffles and Ellie cuddled together makes us feel warm and cozy too.

  5. At least waffles and Ellie don't have to be out in the snow like those deer...hope you all stay safe!
