No, unfortunately this was not taken this year. It has yet to snow and tomorrow is December 1st! In fact, it has been sort of warm lately, as in the 60 degrees F! the man on the "severe weather team" on the TV says it might snow Friday night, though...Keep your paws crossed! I love the snow soooooo much. It is so fun to play and run and jump and burrow and tunnel in! SNOW SNOW SNOW SNOW! PLEASE, let it SNOW!
