Ok, ok, it is not almost spring. We have quite a ways to go yet before we are out of winter, but Saturday sure felt wonderful. Sure, the humans enjoyed it, but even we had fun running around and stretching our legs. And riding around in the Jeep with the windows out!
We got up to 51F (10C) Saturday at the house. Considering we barely saw above freezing temperatures for most of January, that felt like a tropical paradise. We went down to Asheville and they had a high of 62F (16C). To give you an idea of how crazy that is, Asheville has had exactly five days with temperatures above 50F (10C) since December 1. They are over 2000 feet (610m) lower in elevation than us, so you can imagine what our weather is like. We haven’t seen 50F since well before Thanksgiving and got our first snowfall on November 5 (later than normal, for the record).
The only problem is that our snow is melting. Nothing is more depressing than melting snow (though the humans are smiling for some weird reason).
Have no fear, pups, we are promised more before the winter is over. After all, our ski resort closed on April 11 last year – so a lot of winter is still to come! The humans may not agree with us, but cross your paws for more snow. Lots and lots of more snow.
