We were hit with a good strong winter storm on Friday and Saturday. It snowed hard Friday and then snowed a bit more Saturday before the winds picked up and the temperatures began to drop.
Mark and I did a 27 mile run on Friday during the storm. There was alot of trail breaking, but the dogs did a great job!
We gave the dogs Saturday off while we worked on digging out.
I did take a few pictures around the yard, but most of the dogs weren't much interested in crawling out of their warm straw filled houses to smile for the camera.
"Seriously??? You want me to get up for a picture??"
"Okay did you get the shot??"
Fritter workin' it for the camera!
Cricket cleaning out her multitude of toes!
Yesterday, temps were cold but we needed to get a good run in on the main string, so we loaded down the ATVs with a meal and snacks for the dogs, snacks for us, piled on a ton of clothes and headed out the door.
It was -20 C (-8F) when we left.
Lucky thing we packed the shovel - there were some BIG drifts from the wind on Saturday!
Mark bundled up for the temperatures - which continued to drop throughout the afternoon!
These were the last images I got before the camera froze!
The run ended up being a challenging one with temperatures dropping down to the -30C (-20F) and alot of tough trail breaking, but the dogs all came through it well and all 32 hit their food dishes like starving wolves when we got back home!! Complete music to my ears to hear all that lapping!!!
Thanks to Richard, they had nice fluffy beds of fresh straw waiting in their houses for them once they finished dinner!!
This morning it is -40C (-40F). Too cold for the ATVs, but hopefully things will warm up some when the sun crawls up over the trees!
