The View from the Deck

20131221-180359.jpg

last week at this time, this was the view from the back deck of my home. I had shoveled a path to the yard for my very small dog and it had been snowed over a couple of times. Only an inch or so each time so it was not time to shovel again. I noticed the reflection from the snow with illumination from my deck light was making it easier for Bonnie to see in the dark. When this picture was taken, Bonnie wasn’t shivering immediately when stepping outside.

20131221-180901.jpgThe weather has changed. Tonight we are expecting rain and as the temperatures go down, freezing rain turning to ice. Bonnie is standing in the rain surveying her kingdom. She especially likes how squirrels show up more easily in the snow. Maybe tomorrow it will be one of those days where the top of the snow on the ground will turn to ice and Bonnie will walk on top of the snow until the sun turns the ice to slush.
