Duchezz is Home! With additional notations

Duchezz is home and safe.
She had to stop once to clear ice buildup off the windshield, but otherwise just took it slow and careful.

For those who have been worrying about us coping without the 6 ft., 250 pound snuggle-able shoveler, in the van is a somewhat lighter, much less snugglable snow removal apparatus, courtesy of the sergeant and the major.

We even have gas for it.

We are blessed.

Additional notation:
She got it out of the van. Rather than do something that would damage herself (I gave her that look), or go and ask the neighbor to help her lift it out of the van (I swear she has a Y chromosone--must be XXY, that's all I can say), she backed the van through the 8 inches of snow the 20 feet to the porch and rolled it out the back onto the porch.

Yeah, it worked. So did getting up on the porch roof for 9 years. But then...

Love her. I promise not to kill her.

Glad to hear Duchezz is home safe. Here's hoping you can both snuggle down under nice deep quilts with four-legged foot and lap warmers and relax for the weekend.

Gotta get me one of those gas-powered snow removal thingies, too. I'm told they can be very gratifying to use. But in the mean time I have children with good old-fashioned shovels. :-)

Of course, down here in Pittsburgh it's just raining, no snow. I count that a blessing.

Thanks for letting us know she's home!

Glad your both home and safe. Please tell me you both know all that studif (VER IMPORTANT) safety stuff about those snow throwing things. Ear muffs for the noise, gloves, broom handle to unclog.

Yea for women who can snow blow their own drive ways. I need a new one.

We have a neighbor, Charlie, who has a snow blower. He's a bit of an odd duck, but MOSTLY harmless... He does our driveway and sidewalk every storm. He also does some other homes in the neighborhood. He was out with the tractor last night, but the engine was missing (running on 3 cyclindars), so he was out with the older "walk behind" model this morning. Thank you Charlie! Glad to hear you guys are okay!

Hm, actually I think backing up to the porch was rather clever. Must be the extra X chromosome.

Glad you're both home safe and sound!! Do pugs like snow?

One is a definite "no" while the other doesn't like it falling on him, but finds it amusing otherwise.
