Rennie and I took a walk

The irony is I wanted to finish my tour of the Northeast before the snow there started, because I knew that Roxanne would struggle in such wintry conditions, plus I was a little unsure how Rennie would handle it, since he tends to shiver on a cloudy day, and so my plan was to get back South and spend a few months doing visits in Georgia, where winter temperatures usually hover around 40 degrees and snow is so rare, people can remember just about every storm of the last two decades, classifying them by year, such as The Blizzard of ’93.

Of course it would figure then that the day that I planned to drive out to see my girlfriends with whom I have stayed close since elementary school, I got snowed in— not that I am complaining. Yes, I was bummed that the gathering got canceled but really, how upset can you be when the reason is something as beautiful and peaceful as a flurry of snowflakes swirling from the sky, silently resolving to blanket the landscape in clean white, and momentarily freezing time, just like the droplets of water that lie in limbo between liquid and solid? The answer is: barely.

Oh, and boy, was I wrong about Rennie and snow.

    Would you believe we had snow in Bluffton yesterday as well? Boris always was a snow dog as well and he BEGGED to chase the ball yesterday. We got a couple of photos of our “backwards” dalmation and will try to send them to you. Glad to hear Rennie is a snow dog too!

      I would believe it but just barely. I am so glad to hear he is a snow dog, too, though it does not bode well for my supposed goal to live somewhere warm and not too wintry.

    we just had a wonderful snowfall in toronto and seeing all the dogs go crazy i couldn’t help but think of the picture of rennie “i love you snow”. It is one of my favourite pictures so far. The image and the caption just make me smile. If you ever have a minute and could send or forward me a copy (i could print) i would be so happy. i hope he is getting better after his operation. All the best in your travels for the new year margaret!!!
