We got SO MUCH SNOW up here in Vermont. I got back on Friday (I had to bring Nora and Fuji to the vet in RI and get some stuff at the house) and I could not believe how much snow was on the ground. Luckily I bought a snowblower the day before the storm because Craig would have been completely snowed in, it’s over two feet. Craig plowed a little maze in the backyard and the dogs are obsessed with it. I can’t believe it’s already Christmas week. I am SO ready to take some time off. Counting down the days. Wishing all of you a great weekend.
