A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things – a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.
Even My dog is looking depressed with this extended, cold winter season—–There is hope! Today, expect lingering rain/snow showers with temps into the 30s to near 40 degrees. Most road surfaces will stay on the wet to sloppy side with those “warmer temps”. Into tonight, colder air will slide back into your life with more snow showers. Expect a dusting to an inch or two of snow, especially across out southern tier counties through early Thursday. By Thursday afternoon, skies will partially clear with only lingering flurries and cold temps only in the 20s! It looks mainly dry from Saturday through early next week!!! Wait, read that again!! We get a break in the non-stop assault of winter! This weekend look for cloudy to party sunny skies with temps in the 30s to near 40 degrees by Sunday. We could easily be popping into the 40s through early and mid next week—perhaps even 50s! It’s about time for you and your dog!
