Square Dog Friday, Tucson Snow

We have had 2 nights of hard freeze. Today when I got up with the 
Gud Dugs at 6:30 it was snowing.  It was about 40 but as it dropped to 34
big fat wet snowflakes were falling. It is now Noon and it is still snowing.

Just a few photos...

Drying off and warming up.

As always here is your pretty to start the weekend.

  1. Hi, Gayle!

    I was just reading the news headline about the rare snowstorm in Arizona and immediately thought about you and your gud dugs. It is an amazing sight to see the white stuff coming down and coating desert cacti and succulents. I wonder what Winston and Agatha thought of that strange phenomenon. I'm betting they loved it and wish it would happen more often, especially in July. :) I envy you, dear friend Gayle. You got snow this winter and I didn't! :)

    Take care and have a wonderful weekend!

    1. It is nice and pretty but where I live we get hit hard. Last time this happened, i lost most of my small citrus grove. The snow is ok but the hard freeze before is awful.

    1. He just wanted to play and she wanted to eat it.
      They were playing but after a half hour I brought them in.

  3. I enjoyed your video - it seemed so peaceful. I love how a snowfall makes everything sound so muffled and quiet. Winston and Agatha seemed to enjoy their play time in the snow!

  4. That square black dog is enjoying it - but then he knows he has a snug warm house and bed to return to when he is ready.

  6. Is this their first experience with snow? They look like they had a grand time and are happy for a nap. Your photos of the snow are so pretty. Enjoy the weekend.

  8. Winston loves the cold !
    I have to figure out what to do with the damage trees from 7 years ago. I might chop them down and replant with younger trees and keep them small so we can cover them. Hard freeze tonight.

  9. Holy moley. When I think of Tucson, snow sure isn't the first thing that comes to mind. (Or the fiftieth...) It looks like Winston enjoyed that strange white stuff, though. It's fairly warm here, but we've had so much rain over the past week, it may be time to start building our ark.

    Have a super weekend. (Stay warm!) Cheers!
