The Vintage January Dachshund

We love to talk about the weather:  After the recent snow events in the southern parts of the United States and New England, 71 percent of the lower 48 states had snow or ice covering the ground. Every state except Florida reported some snow cover. Even Hawaii had snow, with 7 inches on the ground at the top of Mauna Kea.  What may be a more remarkable statistic than having 71 percent of the lower 48 states covered with snow is the depth of the snow across the country. The national average snow depth was 6.9 inches on Wednesday morning, which demonstrates just how snowy it has been this winter over much of the nation.  Source.

We're hoping all the good Dachshund moms and dads are keeping paths shoveled for us.

We're in Northern Alabama (War Eagle!) and received 11" of snow Sun day evening into Monday. Last night it was 9 degrees outside. Now, we've lived all across the northern tier of the US, but Oskar is a born and raised southern boy. We shoveled the patio and a large patch in the yard for him to go potty because he really hates the snow and cold. Walks are much shorter, as he shivers and grumbles because of the conditions.
We humans have enjoyed snowball fights and crafting snow sculptures while our pup stays buried in the blankets. This has not been a happy winter for Oskar!

I love the snow, being from Canada, we get some snow every year. Last year I was to little to play in it, this year, I have been rolling and bouncing in it. I have to remind mom to get the camera when she lets me out so we can send pics of it
