Ok, I'm going to go opposite of cold and talk about thawing. Yep, for the next week and a half, we are finally getting our January Thaw. Temps will be in the mid 30's to near 40, and for Michigan in January, that's a heat wave. A time where the last of the snow melts off the driveway and I have a "clean slate" again for the next round that comes in February.

It's also a time where I will "brave" the "cold" and take the dogs for walks again. Let me tell ya..that can be fun. And no, I don't take all 5 at the same time, I have no desire to be flown like a kite by 5 active pooches with minds of their own barreling through the city streets. But, it will be good for them to get some of this pent up energy spent that they've been building up because it's been too cold to take them for walks. For the first time in their young lives, Tazzy and Princess yesterday broke out into a nasty fight, drew blood off of each other. They are frustrated at the lack of exercise. They are ok, just minor stuff, but still, it was a bitch getting them two broken up. Brats today act like it never happened. And no, I ain't that dumb to stick my hand in a dog fight, but a bucketful of water tossed on them did the trick. Of course, had to get them in the house right away and keep them in till they dried. Dogs! They sure know how to keep one on their toes.

Yep, I'm going to enjoy this mild week with the weather, and so will my dogs. I know some here want the snow, and believe me, if I could, I'd send all I've got to them. I'm generous, I'd be willing to share.

It is getting up into the forties to fifties now, so mine are willing to go out and play a little bit.

I'm glad it's gonna get a little warmer, but now everything is going to melt and instead of being white and pretty outside, it's going to be muddy and slushy

That is true, it will get slushy out there for a while. But, it's only mid January, still have the rest of this month and February to get through. I'm sure it will snow again.

I had a Great Dane that could make human kites pretty well. I lived in Watertown for a year and it was usually me sliding and him pulling me across the ice all winter. Gve him to a couple on a farm after he tore up the house a couple of times and chewed up all the bedding on the beds. He did not like being a house dog at all and I lived in a loft.

Hey!! Share some of them 70's up here in Michigan! You can skip Ohio as I know there is at least on resident there who loves the snow.

Where is it going to be 70? I can't believe that?! It is 48 ish here and that seems like a heat wave. Memphis gets cold, but it takes awhile to get there. Once it builds up it's strength it is brutal for weeks. Today it is blue skys and my day off. Talulah gets to play ball outside because I can throw the ball out the door from where I play on my pc. Yeah for Talulah and a beautiful day!

I was going to clear my driveway today but I figured: why??? There's a warm spell coming and most, if not all of the snow will be gone off my driveway anyway! Although, it is good exercise because it takes me about an 1½ to clear it with my snow blower and besides, I've already cleared it twice this month soooo, don't want to over do it with the exercising ya know!

I chose the "exercise" of using the shovel. No snow blower here. Although, I do sometimes contemplate the thought of trying to teach the dogs to use the shovel and clear it for me since they seem to like the snow so much.

teach the dogs to use the shovel and clear it

Of course, just like farmers used horses with plows, to turn the dirt over for the next planting before tractors came into use- that'll work! You just need a harness, snow plow and a steak at the end of a pole, to entice them to move! Only, you just have to keep on eye out for PITA, that's all!

We still have snow on the ground, but it's starting to warm up now and I expect us to be snowed free in the next few days.

T-shirt weather. we might get up to 32 on Sun, but our snow pack will keep it cool.
