Snowy Christmas Forecast

Christmas is just around the corner here at the Deaf Dogs and Benevolent Gnomes homestead.  We received over a foot of snow from Blizzard Alivia a few weeks back and have even more snow and wind in the forecast for Christmas Day. 

Here is the Grand Forks office of the National Weather Service forecast for the upcoming holiday weekend. 
Alycia and I have been taking full advantage of the snow cover and relatively mild temperatures this week (it's been near 30 degrees all week) and have taken several snow shoeing adventures along the Red River of the North.  It is very convenient for us, we just walk down the block, over the dyke wall and we're on the Grand Forks Greenway along the Red River.  This upcoming snowstorm should mean enough snow cover for show shoeing and cross country skiing for the rest of the season. 
The dogs are either unimpressed with all the snow, apprehensive about another foot and a half of snow on the way...
...or still trying to impress upon Santa that they've been good all year.

They HAVE been good all year, right? I'm sure Santa will be good to them anyway. We had about the same amount of snow so far as you have, but due to the consistency of said snowfall, I'm finding cross-country skiing to be more difficult than normal. The snow has been very light and it's almost like wading in snow instead of skiing. Ah, well, the winter is young, I'm sure better snow is on the way. Merry Christmas to you and Alycia and the entire DDBG family!
