Not A Snowball’s Chance

Published February 12, 2013 by inanortherntown

Baaj has a new game – he wants to go outside on the deck and have you throw a snowball – then he digs all through the snow trying to find it. Crazy dog.

This afternoon, he ventured off the deck and climbed up a 3ft snow bank and then got “stuck”. He was walking back forth trying to find a way to get down.

Baaj is stuck

Never fear Baaj – here comes Search & Rescue:

There she goes

There she goes

And down:

Down she goes

Down she goes

There were impassioned pleas for help:

Help meeee

Help meeee

It was too bad that I was firmly behind locked doors, drinking coffee and laughing my head off. If only I had heard her cries for help 🙂

It was the best hour of my life.

My neighbour just told me to check my sump pump to make sure it’s working because “when it thaws, it thaws fast”. I don’t know what a sump pump is, where it would be located and how to know if it works. *fingers crossed*

Pecora Nera gave me the best news of the day: Apparently snowmen will help prevent flooding! Thanks BBC!!!

I have enough snow for a complete Calvin & Hobbes montage:

  • Baaj is still hope full of finding some green grass I see…. Pretty smart – if he climbed up to look farther afield! Better get hubby to find the sump pump and check it out – could be a disaster if it’s not working.

  • Funny! I miss you guys.
    The sump pump is in the basement and works to keep the basement from overflowing when the snow thaws, Mr. N-T will figure that out pretty quick : )
