We didn't have much snow yesterday, but there was ice under it and it caused a lot of problems on the roads. Mama had the police scanner on most of yesterday and there were numerous plow trucks that went off the roads. Our road is still bad. They came by and put chemicals on it, but the temperatures were so cold that they didn't work. It was 17 most of the day with a windchill of 3. That's quite different from Wednesday when it was in the 50's.
I drove Mama nuts with wanting to go outside. She said "Joey, I don't think you are a greyhound. You are not supposed to like the cold weather. You are not supposed to want to play for more than 5 or 10 minutes at a time. Are you sure you don't have a zipper on you that will expose another breed of dog? Mama says I'm crazy, but I think she is crazy. What dog has a zipper? So, I spent the day whining because I wanted to go outside and sit in the snow. Mama gave in more than not, but she says that is going to change. She was nervous each time I went out, but I was good and just walked around and sat in the snow. Daddy doesn't believe I was a pain because when he came home I went to sleep for the night.
Daddy is off work until Tuesday! That means Mama is off, too! We have a four day weekend! They are going to the RV show later today. Scout says they go every year. Daddy likes to look at the new models and dream and Mama likes to look at the gadgets and maybe attend a cooking show. We will be camping in just a few months!
