Wednesday Walk with Sandy December 11th 2019

Ahhh, Mother Nature is being even more fickle than usual. A couple of nights ago, the temperature outside dropped to 7F/-14C but then the past couple of days were around 55F/13C and rainy, so a large majority of the 21 inches of snow (18 from the initial storm last Wednesday, with an additional three a day later) melted away. However, this morning as I headed out for a Wednesday Walk with Sandy, there was a fresh inch or so on the ground! While I was more than a little grumpy about it (this weather is not playing nice with the stuff going on in my body), our dog was very happy with his morning wander.

Speaking of wandering, don’t forget to wander on over to @tattoodjay‘s latest post, called Wednesday Walk make me smile post going festive which has some awesomely festive shots of some of the holiday decorations in NYC (my favorite is the Louis Vuitton store front). Also be sure to check out the latest #WednesdayWalk #MakeMeSmile collab from tag hostess @elizacheng called MakeMeSmile Season 3 WednesdayWalk MakeMeSmile / MakeMeSmile 第三季 之 微笑步行星期三 which has some beautiful (and totally smile worthy!) sunrise photos, as well as some of the surroundings, at Kinabalu Pine Resort in Malaysia.

Now, on to my Wednesday Walk with Sandy December 11th 2019!

 
 

Wednesday Walk with Sandy
I was not at all happy to see more white stuff falling out of the sky last night, but I have to admit the trees look pretty frosted in snow

All of this was bare yesterday…

…but at least the back steps aren’t as buried as they were last week!

Sandy, needless to say, was very happy to frolic! He loves nosing the snow…

…in between staring off into the woods.

Smile pretty for the camera, Sandy! Okay, close enough! 😂

He really wasn’t interested in making me smile – he was too busy snowplowing…

…and staring.

I can see why he’s so interested…

 
 
…everything looks so pretty wearing a fresh coat of the evil snow.

 
 
Mother Nature seems pretty insistent on decorating for the holidays this year

 
 
Proof (kind of) that it’s still technically fall!

 
 
A couple hours after taking this picture, the sun came out, and now these branches are completely bare again. Suppose I can’t complain too much, since it doesn’t seem like it’s sticking around for long.

 
 
Since there weren’t any icicles hanging down like last week, I got a shot of our landlord’s memorial tree across the way…

 
 
…dressed in winter white

 
 
Given how much the weather has changed since I started this post, I had to do at least one before and after. Gloomy sky at 10:45am…

 
 
…turned into blue sky by 1:30pm!

 
 
Since this guy was so popular last time, I thought I’d get another shot of him with his new snow chapeau – more of a cap this time, unlike last week’s top hat!

 
 
And kudos to this guy for doing such a wonderful job keeping most of the snow away…LOL!

 
 

Happy walking & see you next week!
