Fred and I went for a nice long walk and it felt great. We did good and I planned on taking another one in the afternoon. Well I sat here for awhile reading blogs and chatting with a friend when I realized it was getting darker, sun was gone. Then came the wind. I knew then the day was not going to be friendly to us for our second walk.
About 20mins later it started to rain like crazy. And it hasn't stopped all day.
Around 5 pm reports of snow started coming in from around town. Never had any here but just about all the mountain ranges did.
I knew Fred needed to go out so I tried to get him out on the carport side. Nope he wasn't having it. I tried the other side of the house where the awning extends pretty far beyond the porch. He came down and and sniffed the wet ground and ran back on the porch. We played this game a few times and I just knew he would not go. I was freezing. He was acting like he was going to bust. So I put his jacket on and I put on mine and out we went again. I closed the gate behind us so he couldn't run back on the porch. I guess the jacket helped some but he was still being stubborn. I guess his bladder won and he finally went and made a beeline for the porch steps. I figured it was good and we went back in the house and he headed for the nearest heater vent to lay on.
You can barely see the outline of the mountain. This is not that high up either.

Mountain Dew is not a soda it is considered a juice since it has 5% juice.
Hope everyone is staying warm in the colder places this evening.
Good Night All
