The Ever Changing Weather in Cleveland, OH

If you live here, you are used to the weather changes.  Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter and orange barrel season where the road construction crews feel the need to bring out the orange barrels only when the weather gets bad.  The photo below are the pumpkins sitting on my neighbors front porch.  I could not resist taking a photo of them freezing in the snow.

Pumpkins on Porch

Two days ago, I mowed the lawn & blew all the leaves out of the yard, doing the final lawn cleanup for the year.  Last night it snowed, and snowed a lot. We woke up to everything covered in white.  Simple beautiful, but I am not ready for it yet.  It is around 34 degrees here and the wind just blows right through you.

SNOWY PUMPKIN

When I took the dogs out this morning, this was the first time this year that they saw snow this deep and they WENT CRAZY!

BELLA PEEKING OUT WINDOW

Bella always has to know where Nikita and I am when we head outside, and she runs to the bedroom window to look out.  When she sees us coming back in, she runs down the hall and sits by the backdoor, acting like she was there the whole time.  (I know better)

Bella ran in circles so many times that she got me dizzy and I had to stop her or I would have fallen over.  Nikita wanted to “dig” cause that is what she loves to do the best when she sees snow.  (I always make her huge piles of snow to dig in and she always comes up covered white with tons of snow on top of her nose)  They are like little kids playing in the snow and I love watching them run and jump and have a good time.

WINTER CLOUDS 11-12-13

The skies are filled with those huge “snow clouds” as we would call them, and we know that we’re in for more snow when we see them.  The photo below, looks like Nikita is trying to catch snowflakes on her tongue!  LOL

Both Nikita and Bella and napping right now, conserving their energy for later when our second round of snow hits us.  These dogs just love the snow!
