Today: Clark tours Southie in the snow.

[tweetmeme source=”elizabethev” only_single=false] When Clark and I headed out for his first walk this morning, just before 7 o’clock, the snow had begun to slow.  The roads were still quite a mess though, so after wading through a few snow banks in my new bright yellow boots, I picked up the French Fry and heading back inside.  I spent the next few hours working by a roaring (electric) fire before we braved the wild outdoors again.

Hey, lady. Let's get a move on.

I assumed this would be another short-lived adventure, but Clark had other plans.  He played tour guide, darting up the steps leading to the Broadway Bridge.  Thanks to his sassy red fleece and Musher’s Secret on his paws, Clark and I were able to stay out for a nice long walk around the neighborhood.

Whose job was it to shovel? Yer firrrred!

After feeling a bit of cabin fever setting in (along with a regular fever, due to this stinkin’ cold), it was great to get out and enjoy the crisp winter air and soak up a bit of vitamin D.  I really love our neighborhood.  Clearly, Clark does too.  So much to see and smell.

Supervising the MBTA. Please hold your complaints.

The sidewalks along the Broadway and W. 4th Street Bridges, and the Harbor Walk were really well plowed. Apparently a bobcat (and presumably a human driving it) were out just before us.

And then, we spotted Batman's shadow... waaaait a minute!

Homeward bound. Like the movie. Except that we're still attached by a leash and collar.

Even though it seems like there’s a storm following each storm, I couldn’t help but enjoy my snowy stroll.  Everyone we encountered seemed to be in a good mood.  The sun was shining, the sidewalks and roads had been cleared, and all seemed right.  Then again, I am hopped up on cold medicine.  So who knows.

Enough grumbling, fellow Northerners.  What’s one thing you love about winter?

  1. Clark is such a cutie! Glad he had fun with his walk in the snow! 🙂 One thing I love about winter is how white and pretty the snow makes everything look, especially in the sunshine. That’s something I never had when I lived in TX or NYC–Virginia is the first place that snow actually looks nice!

  2. Positive thing: making snowmen. There are no snow sculptures on the Cambridge City Hall lawn, which surprises me. I hope to rectify this soon.

  3. hi from ICLW–I love how clean the fresh white snow makes everything look and how it seems to quiet everything. Today I sat walked outside in our fresh snow and crisp air and just enjoyed the stillness all around. It calms me.
