The past couple of weeks here in North Carolina have been pretty warm. Temperatures have regularly been in the 60’s and 70’s with a few cold days mixed in. The weather has been so nice that the trees have decided it was time to start blooming (featured image is the neighbors peach tree in full bloom). We were beginning to think we weren’t going to see any snow for the second year in a row. So you can imagine how shocked we were to wake up to snow falling on Sunday morning!
When Oshie finally managed to get us up, (we thought he let us sleep in for once but forgot about the time change) we opened the blinds to find big white flakes falling from the sky. Oshie had never really seen snow before Sunday. The first year we had him we woke up one morning to the yard covered in frozen rain/ice and that was the extent of his experience with wintry weather. I quickly grabbed the camera and let Oshie loose to experience his first snow.
He had an absolute blast! He was a little confused when it started to stick to his tennis balls (it was a very wet snow) but overall I think he really enjoyed it. Proof is in the pictures below!
Unfortunately the snow only lasted for an hour or two and by mid morning there was no evidence that the snow had even come. It would have been nice if it had stuck around for another day or two, although to be honest I am happy it wasn’t a major storm. The good folks of North Carolina have no idea how to handle snow. At least Oshie has finally experienced the white stuff, even if it was just for a short time.
Here is short video of Oshie enjoying the snow!
