A Snowstorm, A Snowdog, A Happy Old Swede!

The Samoyed traveled for centuries across the Russian tundra with a nomadic tribe of the same name. And Samson took to the snow immediately. Here he is experiencing his very first real snow storm.

Let's go for a walk!

Let's play!

Who said I was low maintenance?

As the sun rose from behind the eastern mountains on the day after the storm, some interesting cloud formations appeared.

There are some cattle in this photo, but you can't see them. They seemed no worse for wear after the storm.

Yesterday, it was 9 degrees outside and the INSIDE of our bathroom window was covered in a sheet of ice!! I've never seen anything like it before. How you can build a house in the mountains without double-paned windows is beyond me.

As the huge blizzard of late fall 2009 traveled East, a pack of coyotes wandered by outside my window and I was a happy old Swede, a bit cold perhaps, but happy that winter is finally here.


  1. Samson almost blended in with the snow! I love the coyote pic. Ooooh and the one with the sky is beautiful. Okay, the ice on the inside of the window, well, that says really cold!!

  2. There have been times when there was ice inside on the window. Not this house, but the one where I grew up, and a few places since then. Love your photos!
