This, That and More SNOW!

Mom made 16 loaves of English Muffin Bread today, 10 for the teachers at karate (the top three, one birthday woman and the dynamo) 1 for the neighbor who helped with the snow blower and two for co-workers. One loaf is already almost all gone, (the boy and dad). That leaves 2 left. Sheesh, the day isn't even over yet.

Karen Jo wrote a beautiful story and limerick about Lucky. I don't know who was more excited, mom or Lucky. Mom was calling everyone she could think of and Lucky was running around in circles, happy as all get out. After that, she collapsed in the boy's arms. Karen Jo is wonderfully talented and she brings so many kitties and woofies to life in such a beautiful way. I am sure she will do as good a job on my limerick as she did on Lucky's. (HINT HINT!)

And yes, since it is New Hampshire and it is winter, we are having MORE snow. I know, can you believe it? Mom is like so psyched she doesn't have to go anywhere tomorrow. Check out the forecast.

Another storm is bearing down on New Hampshire, and it could bring several inches of snow.
Some light snow will begin falling Sunday evening before picking up later and into early Monday. The heavier snow should start falling after 9 or 10 p.m.

Southern New Hampshire will get 4 to 8 inches, central New Hampshire will get 3 to 6 inches, and north of the Notches will get 2 to 4 inches of snowfall.

Another system will quickly follow on New Year's Day. It's an upper-level disturbance, but it will trigger a secondary system to develop just off the coast, which will deliver another burst of heavy snow for many. Southeastern New Hampshire may get a mix, but everywhere else should stay all snow. Central and northern areas will likely be heaviest hit.

Can you believe it? I think we are going for a snow record this year. Mom is not sure if we will ever see spring at this rate. We might have snow in May! Oh well, it could be worse. I'm not sure how, but it could definitely be worse.

I am so glad that Mom and Lucky like my limerick so much. Please feel free to post it on your blog if you like. Roxy, your limerick is coming up next. Just what you need, more snow. I hope it's the light, fluffy kind that's easy to move around.

Stay safe and warm with all that snow! Our humans are very glad that they aren't in Canada this year, since most of the country is being hit with a nasty winter so far. Munich has had a very mild winter with no snow to speak of, so they are happy here!

Hey, Roxie, You sound just like a professional weatherman - uh, woman - forget it, weatherdog! Your mom is celebrating being home and your auntie is having to go hunting in the snow. How can anyone hunt in the snow?

Stay warm and enjoy the breadcrumbs.

Karen Jo's limerick is wonderful. What a talented lady, I think writing like that is so creative. Our snow blower is struggling with this snow.
Love you puppies and Boy and Mom. Jeanne

English Muffin bread sounds quite yummy.

That sounds like alot of snow you guys will be getting . . . no offense, but I am glad it isn't snowing that hard here -- I DO NOT like the snow (although it is better than rain) . . .

Have a warm and safe New Year!!!

Roxy, I love that picture and story about you on the kitchen table. You are a very cool pug! and your baby picture is sooooo cute! Momma loves Karen Jo's poems about you and Lucky. Karen Jo is a very good story teller. We enjoyed her blog very much!
Happy New Year! Stay warm with that storm coming. It is very cold and windy here today in Colorado.

I thought your Mom was on vacation! Sounds like she has a second job as a baker.

I really like the limericks that Karen Jo wrote about you two. You are great woofies!

Oh, mine mombean sez that she is really glad that she moved to California from New England.

Happy New Year to all of you!
