Snowmageddon Part II?

Help!  This is our outlook this week from the local weather peeps.  It’s not looking too good for us, really.  Yesterday, it was beautiful.  The temperature was in the 50’s and me and mom even went outside for a while.  Today starts a quick downward swirl into Snowmageddon Part II.  Shivers.

Help.  I can’t go through this again.  I’ve met snow.  Snow was not nice.  Snow was torturous for us here in Atlanta.  Perhaps everyone learned their lesson last time and we are all more prepared this time.  I really hope so.

We have to get over this 70% chance of snow/ice/sleet thingy quickly before Friday, Valentine’s Day.  Remember we have hot dates scheduled for the most romantic day of the year.

So friends, please start doing the go-away-Snowmageddon-repeat storm.  We don’t want you here.

Goodbye Snow


It was really nice seeing you snow up close and personal.  I’ve always wondered about you.  How you would feel on my hooves and my snout.  If you would be freezing cold.  How much fun would you be running in and rolling around.  All of my questions got answered in the past couple of days.

You are freezing cold… especially on my undercarriage – bbrrr.  You crunch when I walked on you.  That was the strangest sound I’ve heard in a long time.  You made my snout cold and when snow got in my snout you made me sneeze.  You were fun for a while.  I’ll admit that.

But there were difficulties.  Like climbing back up my “slide” on the deck.  I couldn’t because you turned into mushy ice.  Ice is a mean bedfellow.  Mommy had to carry me up the deck stairs.  Yep, 50 pounds of wet pig she carried.  Poor mom’s back that was already hurting from chasing me in the yard.  What?  Don’t look so innocent.  You knew I was going to run around in you snow.  I had to.  Just to know what it felt like pouncing around in you and making little snow bunnies.  It was a once in a lifetime experience.  It really was.

So, goodbye snow.  We had fun.  We made snowmen.  We made snow bunnies.  I even tasted you.  Mom and dad says we only get you once in every blue moon when hell freezes over.  I’m good with that.  I am officially taking you off of my bucket list now.  Adios my cold friend.

Snowmageddon Continues


So when you are snowed in during the great Snowmageddon, what do you do?  The rock clan decided to go outside and attempt to make snowballs and snowmen – rolls piggy eyes.  They can go for it.  Snow is cold – snorts. I stayed inside and doctored mom with her back.  Me and dad made a nice fire and we camped out on the sofa with mom’s heating pad.

So they all galloped outside with the camera and made a small snowman.  You can see it barely on the top part of their picture.  And all of the rocks decided to go out – Bashful, Manny, Princess Coralena, Virginia, Benedict and Rockelle. 


Poor Virginia is in the upper left hand side.  It looks like she almost got covered and snowed in – snorts.  And do you see who is siding up all cozy together – Rockelle and Benedict.  Could love be in the air… or is that snow? 

I’m also glad to report that Snowmageddon in Atlanta seems to be clearing up a bit.  It was tough going for a couple of days here.  The snow hit us hard and I’ll be the first to admit it that we don’t do snow very well.  First off, we just don’t get it that often if ever.  But when we do, we shut down – literally.  There were people that got stuck in traffic with the snow and ice on highways downtown.  They were in their cars for hours before giving up and trying to get him by alternate ways.  Then there were schools that had to keep children overnight because they couldn’t get them home in the snow and ice. 

Yep, it’s been a tough couple of days here.  But it looks like things are turning around.  Mommy finally gets to go back to the worky place tomorrow.  I hate that because I sure have enjoyed her being home with me.  That’s for sure.

How Cold Is It?


I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  I’m from the south.  We don’t really get that much cold.  But when we do get cold, have mercy on our little souls!  We don’t know how to act in the cold let alone a snowflake.  It’s cold here!  Yesterday morning, it was in the single digits.  Did you read that – S.I.N.G.L.E. digits.  That is unreal.  Mother Nature doesn’t need to be playing these kinds of tricks on us.  My mom, she likes cooler weather but even she wore an actual coat outside yesterday in those single digits.  And by this weekend, they say we will be in a heatwave in the 60’s!  Now that kind of ‘cold’ weather I can deal with.


This little piggy, I don’t like the cold period. Mommy actually opened the back door and wanted me to go outside to use the bathroom like a common piggy and look at nature.  Really mom?  Now you are going to push the issue.  I told her my behinney would freeze off and then late last night I found this picture to the left.  It’s true.  My little behinney would fall off outside in the cool air.  Right?  Daddy laughed at mom.  She told him that she just wanted to show me the ice and how cold it was.  Mom, here’s a heads up.  If I want to see ice, I’ll break into the freezer again in the kitchen, okay.  Okay.

Stay warm my friends!
