Happy Spring

It may be the first day of spring but it sure doesn't feel like that outside with temperatures sitting at close to -30'c and a windchill of -45'c.  We experienced another blizzard last week and it was a good one, at times I could hardly see the house across the street.  We didn't have had any snow on our deck but due to the wind direction we had so much snow that it cover two of our windows, so yesterday Craig dressed warm and started to clear some of that snow.

Here's a bit of a video of the blizzard

This was the view or should I say lack of view from our 
windows in the living room

Blitz was the foreman and watched Craig from inside

Making sure he's doing a good job

So much snow - Craig said at least 7 feet of it

There is so much snow on the bay that we couldn't see any of that gorgeous blue ice this year.  Lucky for us the road was cleared to the bridge and on the other side was a large patch of it.  Kinda like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, so of course we had to get some pictures again this year.

Every year Blitz and I get a different pic of our feet and the blue ice

Before the blizzard came in on Tuesday I was asked to check on a puppy that was walking 'funny'.  So off I went and to make a long story short the owners surrendered her to Northern Canine Rescue (the re-vamped rescue I am involved with) and she was our foster for a few days.  Her and Blitz had a great time and as usual he was so depressed after she left.  She finally flew out of here on Saturday to Yellowknife where she will spend a few days there before she flies to a rescue in Calgary.  I hope the vets can fix her front legs and that she finds a loving home. 

Best friends

Molly had to remind the little one who was the boss and Blitz
had to make sure she was ok - she wasn't harmed, just her feelings

All of forgiven - later on they slept together

So adorable
You can see how her front legs are

Here's a video of her and Blitz playing

Poor Blitzy Boy
So depressed after she left.

A week from today we will arrive in our Southern Home and will be happy to get our bones and soul warmed up.  I don't think we have much planned just some relaxing and exploring more of the area. 

Talk soon!
