Wordy Wednesday - Recent Snow

It seems funny posting these on a day where the windows are thrown open and a gentle breeze is blowing but these are from our recent snows. This winter has yielded the most snowfall I've seen since Spring 2001.
The creek looked and felt downright icy.

Mt. Lukens kept splashes of snow on it my first winter here. It was nice to see some white up there again.

This mountain, deep in the Angeles National Forest - but visible from my driveway, always seems to get the most. I found myself dashing into my front yard about to confront someone I thought was photographing my house, when I remembered this mountain. (Go ahead, say it with me: "Dork!")

And finally, the southern face of our valley's northern mountains NEVER have snow... but they did this year.

Regarding Mabel's most recent post: I know some of you realized what a Diva Dog I have (and see how well trained I am!) and understand the guilt I feel at leaving her for my crazy commercial job.  I did get a few emails from people who thought I was giving Mabel away!!!! As if! The point of the joke was... she's getting rid of ME. But then if you have the explain the's not really funny, now is it?

My job is over and today, I'm home recouping from the long hours of work and commuting and doing lots of cuddling to ingratiate myself with the princess. Still worried about my next source of income but happy to have a few days where nothing matters but me and the dog!

Giving Mabel away? They thought THAT?!

Is my imagination, or is Mabel unhappy about the cold and muddy rush of water?

Amazing... but true! Mabel is my life really! We're a package deal!

You picked up on her hesitancy right away Snow! No, she didn't do her daily dip that day!

Seriously, how could they think that!!! My son has been amazed at the snow in the mountains there this year too. Enjoy it while it lasts:)

We bet Mabel is happy to have you home and you are thrilled to be there too. Paws crossed for the green papers to keep coming in but maybe with a less demanding schedule.
