Dogs in Snow

The white stuff is melting fast now, but before that happened I snapped some footage of these Kansas City canines carousing in the snow.

Let me know what you think in the comments – this is my first attempt at video editing!

Return of the Blizzard

On Tuesday, the world outside our Kansas City windows looked like this. image

In a follow-up to last week’s snowstorm, Snowpocalypse II dumped another 10-12 inches across the metro, and pretty much shut down the city.

The dogs and I didn’t mind too much, since it was perfectly possible to snuggle get work done on the couch in the home office.

Can’t you see I’m working here?

And then, suddenly, it was no longer possible to be so productive. Right after I snapped that Instagram of Charlie Machete playing office, we heard a loud pop across the street.

A transformer had exploded, and the power would be out for the next 20 hours or so.

Reportedly, some 100,000 people lost power at some point during the storm.

As one of them, I feel incredibly lucky that friends and family offered us a respite from the cold overnight.

Bonus: The sleeping accommodations included a fireplace and Charlie Machete’s spastic girlfriend Roxy.

Wherever you are today, I send you warm wishes!
