Living in New York state means that one becomes subject to some abusive weather. If we don’t listen to weather reports and pay attention, the weather might even play “dirty tricks” on us, causing us to fall and get hurt!
This morning, I took the Scotties outside and I could see the ground glistening as the lights on the garage reflected on the icy terrain! I heard we were going to get some freezing rain so this wasn’t a surprise! But the Scotties…..oh my goodness!
Murphy and Angus pushed on ahead of me as they are inclined to do. They bounced down the stairs and onto the sidewalk. Suddenly, they both approached the graveled driveway and STOPPED! The icy glaze is so thin that even their slight 20 pound bodies caused the glazing to make a cracking sound as their little Scottie paws broke through! As suddenly as they stopped, they realized they had nothing to fear and the two of them wandered about the yard, sounding like elephants as the turf beneath them buckled and cracked!
If you click on the photos, they wll expand and give you a better idea of the pre-dawn conditions that greeted us! Not to fear….the temperature is to soar well above freezing today, melting all of the offensive slippery surfaces!
