Historic Snow Day for the US - 49 out of 50 states get measurable snowfall

Lets back up to Wednesday first since I'm behind posting. The LCCOC agility director canceled agility class Wednesday but the temperature was in the mid to high 40s and it was dry. Tracey and I took advantage of our free evening to practice instead of teach agility. We alternated working Tracey's four USDAA entries for Crosby this weekend and my guys.

Bern practiced running with someone other than mom for USDAA pairs. He is scheduled to run pairs with Grace at the end of the month. Mike is going to run Bern. Their practice went great - Mike got Bern where he wanted him to go including tire and weaves.

We worked on Grace's steering and jumping. Then Grace did weave pole practice. Lo and behold it seems that if I walk slightly in front of Grace with my arms naturally swinging at my sides she weaves like a dream! I must work on this over the weekend. HOWEVER...

The weekend got off to a very snowy start. According to the evening news the US received measurable snow in 49 of the 50 states today (sorry Hawaii - your mountains were snow free today). We even got a good bit of snow in Baton Rouge.

The vegetable garden was under a light blanket of snow by mid morning on Friday. We have postponed Grace's herding lesson until Sunday hoping for drier field conditions. The snow is gone but the white blanket was pretty while it was here.

More house hunting today...the yard was nice but the house layout/interior was weird. House hunting continues.
